Charity body Hope Place reaches out to underprivileged family



By Jasmine Badun

KUCHING: A family with six children reached out to charity organisation Hope Place Kuching after they were hit hard financially due to the pandemic.

Jailani Kassim and his wife Ernie Yusnita Yusof have children aged between one and 15, and are staying at a house belonging to Jailani’s parents in Semerah Padi, Petra Jaya here.

The 45-year-old father and his family moved from Sibu to Kuching in 2020 after he lost his job during the movement control order (MCO).

He is currently working as a labourer, earning daily wages due to difficulties in finding a proper job.

According to a statement from Hope Place, they have a household income of below RM1,000.

Last year, Hope Place had given them a one-off food aid during the MCO.

Due to financially struggling for two years, the family once again reached out to Hope Place and are given basic food supply as well as milk powder for their baby.

For more information, Hope Place or Persatuan Kebajikan Harapan Kuching (PKHK) can be reached at 082-505987. 

Opening hours are from 8am to 5pm from Mondays to Fridays, and 8am to 12pm on Saturdays. 

All donations are welcome and receipts will be given upon request.

The public can donate directly to Hope Place’s Maybank bank account: 511289001160 or visit their Facebook page to get the Sarawak Pay/S PAY GLOBAL QR code.
