KUCHING: As part of the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR), H&L Retail Sdn Bhd has sponsored roller blinds to be installed at Kenyalang Market.

To thank the company for its contribution, Kuching City South Council (MBKS) has presented a certificate of appreciation that was received by its director Bong Fook Chan on Saturday (Aug 14).

MBKS mayor Datuk Wee Hong Seng conveyed his appreciation to H&L for such generosity and kind act for sponsoring the roller blinds as well as food aid given previously.

“The council appreciates such kind acts it showed to Kuching South all this while especially during this pandemic,” he said.

He also extended his gratitude to Milton Foo, Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Youth secretary-general for taking the time to search for sponsorship and making the request on behalf of the hawkers.

“Thank you also to Councillor Goh Tze Hui and Councillor Kho Teck Wan for bringing up this request to the council’s attention,” he said.

Present to witness the certificate presentation was Minister of Local Government and Housing Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian.

Dr Sim, who is also the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) advisor also took the opportunity to remind the public to always adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) laid by SDMC.

“With the new variant of Covid-19 in Sarawak, please be extra careful with whatever you do or wherever you go and remain at home as much as possible.

“These are the least we can do for our frontline workers, as well as to help flatten the curve of Covid-19 pandemic,” he added.

Dr Sim also urged the public to practise the 3W’s that is ‘wash, wear and warn’ which means washing hands with soap or hand sanitiser, maintaining social distance, avoiding crowded area and avoiding handshakes.
