Sibu: The National Association of Malaysian Life Insurance and Family Takaful Advisors (NAMLIFA) Sibu Branch on Thursday (Oct 7) presented 31 food packages to the needy families in the west bank of Sibu.

The food packages were delivered to representatives of Cheng Yong Methodist Church at Sg Bidut for distribution.

The food aids were for the families who are in need of help at nearby Tanjung Engkilo and Bukit Lan areas.

This food bank project, according to the branch’s spokeswoman Catherine Huang started in August due to the current Covid-19 pandemic and would continue until December this year.

Today the committee also gave food aids to 27 residents of the four families of Kpg Sentosa who are victims of recent fire which destroyed their home.

Last week food baskets were given to the needy families living along Oya Road, Tong Sang Road and Jalan Bukit Assek as well as nearby Uk Daik area.

The committee thanked those who donated in cash and kind in enriching the life of the needy families.
