Date:

BINTULU: A total of 460 food baskets were handed over to 23 neighbourhood areas in the Program #Kita Bersama RT Cares Bintulu district, held at the Kampung Jabai Muktamar hall.

Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department (Integrity and Ombudsman) and Jepak assemblyman Datuk Talib Zulpilip, officiated at the symbolic handover that was witnessed by the Department of National Unity and Integration (JPNIN) Sarawak director Dirwana Azool, on Saturday (Aug 14).

The programme is an initiative of the department based on the concept of ‘RT4All’ or RT Cares for all sections of society regardless of the background of the recipients.

It aims to help targeted group affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, especially the B40 group.

Talib hoped that the donation of the food basket would, to some extent, help ease the burden of those affected by the on-going pandemic.

“As Malaysians, especially the people of Bintulu, we need to be united in our efforts to break the chain of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Without the cooperation of all parties, we will likely to see no end to this increase in positive Covid-19 cases,” he said.

Therefore, he called on all parties to mobilise efforts and energy to help the government, especially the frontliners, to break the Covid-19 chain, especially in villages, longhouses and housing estates.

“This includes conducting regular patrols so that there are no communities in the village or in housing areas loitering or gathering by the roadside or in parks to prevent the virus transmission,” he added.
