KUCHING, May 24: The Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) does not stop Hope Place to continue with its charity work.

This was evident when the non-governmental organisation (NGO), led by the founder Kelvin Wan, visited three families at Kpg Emperoh Giam, about 34 kilometres along Jalan Borneo Heights on Saturday to distribute food items to them.

A few volunteers also joined the trip and among the families they visited was that of Tomi Pulo, who lives in a hut about 20 minutes walk from Kpg Emperoh Giam, with his wife and 17-year-old school going son.

The family is living without electricity and clean water supply.

“We continue with our charity work during this CMCO, but we always comply with the standard operating procedure (SOP),” Kelvin said.

According to Kelvin, they are only given two days in a week during this CMCO to carry out their obligation to help the deserving families.

“So given the time constraint that we are facing at the moment, we need to work harder and faster,” he said, adding that almost 100 families are in the list of recipients.

Kelvin thanked the donors to Hope Place who come forward with the noble cause to help destitute families in the society. -DayakDaily
