KUCHING: The Kuching Muslim Indian League has taken the initiative to provide essential food supplies to those affected by the recent floods in the city.

About 50 affected families from Kampung Surih, Stapok and nearby areas were selected to receive the donation.

Kuching Muslim Indian League president Abdul Jaleel Abdul Majid said the food aid was given to the needy regardless of their race and religions.

“Many families were affected by the recent floods; therefore, we have decided to support them by giving each family a set of essential groceries,” he said when distributing the food supplies in Kampung Stapok, Lorong 2 Segedup Rimba, Jalan Batu Kawa on Saturday,

He said among the food items included a packet of 10kg rice, milk, salt, eggs, sugar, oil, and others.

In view of the need to comply with the standard operating procedure, only eight families were invited to receive the donation in a simple handing over ceremony.

While for the rest, the association will distribute it to the affected families themselves.
