BAU: Nirvana Memorial Park Kuching has donated a sum of RM20,000 to Kuching Life Care Society to purchase new ambulance.

“The need for new ambulance is to replace the one which was involved in an accident. So, when we are able to get the ambulance, we can continue to give the best service to the sick,” he said.

At the same time, at the Enlighten Ceremony held at Nirvana yesterday, Nirvana executive director Siaw Chow Jin said this was the first ceremony to be held physically after two years of pandemic.

He said, before this, the ceremony was conducted online through Facebook Live during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As we are transitioning to the endemic phase, we see an upward trend of people visiting their loved ones at the memorial park here.

“Besides that, as Bau is developing rapidly, more visitors would go visit the town and its area, especially the Tasik Biru, Fairy Cave, Paku Hotspring, Serembu Ecopark, the Siniawan Town and others.

“Nirvana is also a tourist attraction for people to learn the culture and religion. They could also get to know our previous leaders buried here,” he said.

Past leaders like Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Wong Soon Kai, Tan Sri Stephen Yong, Tan Sri Dr James Jemut Masing and others were buried at the memorial.

At the ceremony, Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Serembu Branch Chairman Vylen Lai was present there on behalf of Serembu assemblyman Miro Simuh.
