KUCHING: The Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development Ministry (KWKPK) will not be able to help everyone because of manpower and logistics constraints.

“Therefore, we need help and cooperation from other parties such as non-governmental organisations (NGOs) or individuals,” said its minister Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah during an interview with Borneo Channel portal on Facebook live last Saturday night (Feb 27).

She pointed out that while Malaya had a celebrity preacher and philanthropist Ustaz Ebit Lew who went around channelling welfare assistance to the needy, Sarawak also had similar exemplary figures such as Hope Place founder Kelvin Wan.

“These people are very important in complementing us to provide early assistance to the needy, especially to those whose names were missed out from the list of the Social Welfare Department.

“Once we obtain information about these people who were assisted, we can come afterwards to channel monthly assistance,” she added.

Fatimah said close cooperation with various parties was always welcomed in relieving the burden of the needy.
