Hope Place responds to two calls for help


KUCHING: Hope Place Kuching recently donated several items to Kuching Drug Rehabilitation Centre (Puspen).

The non-governmental organisation (NGO) said among the items contributed were biscuits, instant noodles, 3-in-1 coffee, bottled water, face masks and hand sanitisers.

Puspen is currently closed and everyone in the centre has been undergoing quarantine since June 24 after a Covid-19 breakout.

On another note, Hope Place also responded to another urgent case brought up by Anjung Singgah.

“Anjung Singgah is under Yayasan Kebajikan Negara, which provides temporary shelter to the homeless. So, it was brought to our attention the plight of a young mother, 21, with a two-month-old infant. They are homeless,” the NGO said on Monday (June 28).

Hope Place said while the young mother would be under the care of Anjung Singgah, the NGO helped by providing a one-off supply of baby diapers and milk.

To find out more about Hope Place, contact the NGO at 082-505987.

All donations are welcomed and receipts will be given upon request.

The public who wish to donate can do so through Maybank account number 511289001160 or scan the SarawakPay QR code on the NGO’s Facebook page.
