KUCHING: Seventeen surau and mosques received financial aid of RM700 as well as two boxes of dates each yesterday.

In addition, RM150 and a box of dates were given to 170 orphans each.

The donations were handed over by Kuching City South Council (MBKS) mayor Datuk Wee Hong Seng in conjunction with the month of Ramadan.

Also present were deputy mayor Hilmi Othman, councillors Sufian Ateng, Sebali Chik and Bong Lian Huan.

“The names of the 170 children were given by the surau and mosques as they know better who is eligible to receive such aid,” said Wee.

“This initiative is one of the city council’s Caring Society programmes aimed to help residents of Kuching City South.”

He also took the opportunity to wish everyone a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri. “We need to be thankful because Sarawak is one of the states with multicultural citizens who live harmoniously, which reflects that Sarawak has a stable government.”
