KUCHING: Ever since the movement control order (MCO) was implemented, Habitat for Indigenous and Urban Programme (Hidup) has been presenting essential food items to families at Taman Duranda, Kampung Duras and Kampung Sikog.
The items were given to Hidup by generous donors.
Hidup’s president George Young Si Ricord Jr said because people couldn’t leave their homes following the MCO, their incomes had been severely affected and their livelihood changed for the worse.
“Food was barely enough for these families and they were careful to stretch what they have over the next few days,” he added.
George said Hidup would continue to highlight the plight of these families and do its best to ease their anxiety by bringing them the essential food items.
“But we don’t know how it will be as time goes by, especially now with the extension of the MCO. We must be dynamic in approaching changes and crisis, not to be lackadaisical,” added George.
He thanked friends and supporters of Hidup for their generosity.
“When this pandemic is finally over, people will remember what you did,” he said.
