KUCHING: Hope Place Kuching continues to lend a helping hand to needy families affected by the Covid-19 pandemic situation in the state.

The non-governmental organisation together with H&L Supermarket Group recently responded to an urgent call to help 148 families in Lundu who were under the imposition of enhanced movement control order (EMCO).

The villages are Kg Sebako 1 with 91 families and Kg Sebako 2 with 57 families.

“As the villagers specially requested for fresh or wet food, H&L Supermarket gladly sponsored fresh vegetables and even trays of fresh eggs to all 148 families. 

“Hope Place also tops-up these emergency aid with other dry food such as biscuits, noodles and flour as well as face masks,” it said in a statement on Monday (Feb 22).

Hope Place said it took them two hours to reach the village from Kuching city and all the items were handed over to an officer from the Social Welfare Department (JKM) at Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Sebako. 

“We were unable to go directly into the villages as it was still under lockdown and is considered a high-risk area,” it added.
