MIRI: The Northern Sarawak Journalists Association (NSJA) handed out food baskets to needy pupils of SJKC Chung Hua Tudan here.

Wednesday’s (Sept 15) event was part of the ‘Prihatin Kasih’ programme organised by NSJA, and Fire and Rescue Department Zone 6 Miri.

The donations were handed over by NSJA president Andy Jong Wan Joon to school headmaster Law Sie Kong, witnessed by NSJA secretary Michelle Choo and NSJA deputy treasurer Esther Ching.

“This aid is channelled to the target group so that they don’t feel left out by society.
