DALAT: The new Dalat/Oya Perkim office at the first floor of Galeri Warisan Melanau Oya (Oya Melanau Heritage Gallery) will be completed in November this year.

This was revealed by Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Chidlhood Development Minister Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah when she officiated at the 27th Dalat/Oya Malaysian Islamic Welfare Organisation (Perkim) annual general meeting (AGM) here at Dalat Community Hall on Saturday.

 “The office is equipped with the necessary facilities, a meeting room, and a pantry next to the gallery, the Melanau Oya Trust Board (Lakmo) and Busana Melanau office,” she said when addressing attendees at the meeting.  

Fatimah, who is also Dalat assemblywoman called on members to spend time for daily self-reflection on matters such as doing good things, doing charity and avoid negative acts that could harm others in the community,.

On the coming fasting month in April, she called on Muslims here to make necessary preparation both physically and spiritually.

The minister also advised the people here to register themselves and their families for the Covid-19 vaccination, as Sarawak needed 80 percent in order to achieve herd immunity against the coronavirus infection.

Fatimah also revealed that during the fasting month of Ramadan, visits would be organised not only to Perkim members, but also the new Muslim converts in Dalat/Oya area.

At the event, she also handed minor rural project (MRP) grant amounting to RM10,000 to Dalat/Oya Perkim to help organise activities. Four other recipients also benefited from assistance handed by her.

Two others also received assistance under the Dalat Foundation Aid while 10 others were recipients for schooling aid all of which were contributed by Datin Amar Fatimah Jamil.
