SIBU: Several non-governmental organisations (NGOs) as well as individuals donated food to patients at Sibu Hospital on Wednesday (Sept 29).

According to spokesperson Joshua Ting, “We decided to provide food aid to Sibu Hospital after learning that the wards are currently operating at full capacity.”

“The donations included 100 bags of 10kg rice, 20 cartons of various types of crackers, 50 cartons of instant noodles and 50 cartons of mineral water,” he said, adding that they also received 50 bags of 10kg rice over the weekend from one Alexander Tong.

At the same time, he also thanked the Pilley Methodist Institute Alumni Association for their contributions comprising rice vermicelli, soy sauce, sauce, coconut milk, corn flour, cooking oil and curry powder.

“These efforts are made easy because of the strong collaboration between NGOs as well as individuals,” said Ting, who is also Progressive Democratic Party Bawang Assan Youth chief and Sibu Rural District Council member.
