Urban Development and Natural Resources assistant minister Datuk Len Talif Salleh said among the schools involved were SMK Belawai, SK Abang Gesa, SK Abang Buyuk, SK Abang Galau, SK Tanjung Manis, SK Stalon and SK Bayang.

“A total of 203 vouchers amounting to RM40,600 were distributed to seven schools in Kuala Rajang.

“We hope that more parties will collaborate together with us to help the local community, especially during this Covid-19 pandemic.

“On this occasion, I would also like to thank the GPS government and the Sarawak Foundation for the annual programme.

“I hope the assistance will benefit the recipients as well as possible in accordance with its objectives,” he said.
