KUCHING: The Social Security Organisation (Perkeso) is opening its counter at the Kuching South City Council (MBKS) Innovation Week for hawkers to register for its latest schemes and programmes.

MBKS mayor Datuk Wee Hong Seng thanked Perkeso director Philip Sangkan for the booth.

“I believe this is one of the ways to attract the public to come to MBKS besides showcasing our innovative ideas,” he said in his speech at the exhibition today.

“This of course makes us move forward to working together with all departments concerned and that they are the partners of the council.”

Wee was happy to learn that Perkeso had registered almost 200 hawkers and a total of 400 hawkers had registered at the organisation’s office.

“This is a great achievement. I am very thankful to Perkeso for helping them out.

“Next Tuesday on Oct 27, the Perkeso counter will open again from 9am to 12pm. For those who have not registered yet, please come to the counter.”

He added that MBKS would arrange with Perkeso to open more counters and to do registration for all hawkers in MBKS’ areas.

Meanwhile, Wee also expressed his thanks to the Divine Will Society Kuching for donating six beds and 10 wheelchairs to MBKS to be distributed to the less fortunate.

“We really appreciate this gesture and hopefully these items can be very useful to the recipients.”
