KUCHING, May 15: The Movement Control Order (MCO) arising from the Covid-19 pandemic has seen an excellent culture of lending a helping hand in Kota Samarahan.
This was the view of Kota Samarahan District Council (KSDC) chairman Datuk Peter Minos after he received a donation from Telekom Malaysia (TM) to buy foodstuff for the councillors serving with the council.
He received the donation from TM Sarawak general manager Jafer Sadig Abdul Lathiff.
Minos said the donation was very meaningful for the councillors, who have not received any meeting allowance since the MCO was imposed and now the Conditional MCO (CMCO) till June 9.
According to him, some of the councillors also have their small business either disrupted or closed since MCO was imposed on March 18, adding that it was good to have good samaritans like TM.
“This Covid-19 pandemic sees the better of helping the unfortunate and this is an excellent culture from the private sector,” Minos said.
Prior to this, Aiman Group, HSL Group and Farley Supermarket have also donated to the council staff working as Covid-19 frontliners, including off campus and outstation students studying in public universities like Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) and UiTM. – DayakDaily
