KUCHING: Hope Place Kuching recently sent food aid to the Malysian Medical Welfare Fund Sarawak Zone (Sentosa Hospital Kuching).

The charitable non-governmental organisation (NGO) said the hospital was temporarily closed and its entire staff including the kitchen staff had to undergo swab tests on Tuesday (July 13).

“Without any delay, we delivered food aid to them early in the morning. We were informed that three meals a day were provided by the government but some staff and patient requested for extra food and water.

“Their kitchen was closed down thus, extra food cannot be prepared for the staff and patients. Moreover, they were not allowed to go out to buy food,” said Hope Place in a statement today (Wednesday).

Hope Place founder, Kelvin Wan handed over 30 boxes of water, 30 boxes of  cup noodles, 30 packs of 3-in-1 Milo, 30 packs of 3-in-1 coffee as well as 10 cartons of biscuits to a representative of the medical welfare fund, Azzizie Mohamad Jeman.
