KUCHING: The newly launched iSarawakCare Mobile App now is ready to cater for members of the public to apply the Kenyalang Gold Card initiative via online.

State Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development Minister Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah said the mobile apps would enhance the speed on the application process.

“I noted that the priority rollout began with high impact services to go online.

“By providing online application under the one-integrated digital apps, the ministry will be able to trace the cases,” she said at the press conference organised her ministry.

With the mobile app featuring information function, Fatimah urged potential applicants to provide their complete details in the application form.

“I am sure there are people who still have yet to apply the KGC. Those who have yet to apply can fill up the form via the app,” she added.

Upon registration through the app, it is learned that user would be notified for all types of grants and assistance they are eligible for under the ministry over their lifespan.

The mobile app was officially launched by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg on March 8 this year as initiative towards digitalising Sarawak.
