MIRI: The Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Mulu service centre via its “Squad Kasih Sayang” is working with the community leaders to identify and help those in the B40 group within their constituency to sustain during the recovery movement control order (RMCO) period.

The “Squad Kasih Sayang” Northern Zone coordinator Datin Esther Balan when speaking to reporters on Thursday (September 3), said they were currently working very closely with community leaders in Mulu to help identify the needy groups for the programme.

She was met after presenting assistance in the form of food items to 21 needy persons in Mulu area.

“Please alert us (Squad Kasih Sayang) on those needy groups so that we can help and channel the assistance,” she pointed out.

Esther had earlier on together with Datin Catherine Awing, the wife of Datuk Robert Laing Anyie (one of PBB’s veteran members) presented the food assistance to the needy group at the PBB Mulu service centre here at Jalan Miri By-pass.

The recipients came from Long Terawan, Kuala Tutoh, Long Panai and Batu Belah.

Each of them received one packet of daily food essentials comprising 10kg rice, cooking oil, biscuits, flour, sugar, salt and other household items.

This was the fourth time such event being held by the PBB Mulu service centre to help the needy group during this difficult time.
