SIBU: Food supply continues to be distributed to the residents of flats and housing areas in Town Villa, Sibu Jaya after the enforcement of the enhanced movement control order (EMCO).  

Social Welfare Office Sibu said the food assistance was distributed in stages since last week with the help of the Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM), police, the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MoH) and other frontline personnel.

On Tuesday, a food supply was distributed to houses in Town Villa Parcel B and the Sibu Jaya flats.
