KUCHING: A total of 143 needy individuals received food aid from  the Land Custody and Development Authority (LCDA) under its #LCDAprihatin.

The recipients comprised residents of Tabuan Flat, Kuching and penambang operators from Kampung Seberang Hulu and Kampung Seberang Hilir.

“The implementation of movement control order (MCO) has caused devastating effect on the livelihoods of many Malaysians.

“With the number of daily new cases rising rapidly and the implementation of enhanced movement control order (Emco) in more areas within the Kuching division, we must assist one another in any way we can.

“Hence, the #LCDAprihatin programme will continue to assist families, especially those from LCDA’s project area,” said its senior manager of Corporate Affairs Saiful Bahari Amra Ramly.

He disclosed that through the programme, LCDA provided essential food assistance such as rice, sugar, flour and cooking oil worth some RM14,300.

“The assistance is intended to relieve the burden of those hit hardest by the Covid-19 pandemic and also provide the opportunity to enhance the relationship between LCDA and the local community,” he said.
