KUCHING: Families affected by the recent fire in Kampung Haji Baki today received basic food aid and cash donations from the caring public. 

Batu Kitang assemblyman Lo Khere Chiang was present when the fire victims received the food aid and cash donations.

“I would like to thank all those involved for their attendance and sincere contributions. They came with food and cash donations and their efforts are priceless,” he said during the ceremony at Kampung Haji Baki today (30 June).

“It has not been easy for everyone, especially during this time of trial in view of the Covid-19 pandemic. Many are in difficult situations but still, they manage to come and help the families here.”

Also present during the ceremony were representatives of Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Jalan Haji Baki who presented textbooks and school supplies to one of the fire victims, Mohammad Syazwan, 12, a pupil at the primary school.

The school also presented a cash donation of RM3,510 which was collected from staff and teachers as well as contributions from other schools to Mohammad  and his family.

Three other affected families also received contributions which included basic food items from the Kampung Haji Baki Cultural Welfare Organisation.  

The organisation also handed over cash donations to the three families; the money came from    funds it received previously from the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government.
