KUCHING: Recipients of the food aid under the National People’s Well-Being and Economic Recovery Package (Pemulih) are thankful to the federal government for being concerned about their welfare.
The federal government recently allocated RM300,000 to all MPs including the opposition for them to implement the Food Basket Aid for those affected by the Covid-19 pandemic within their respective constituencies.
Petra Jaya MP and Senior Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof began distributing Pemulih food baskets in his constituency to 5,000 household heads last Saturday (July 10.
“The government will strive to find additional funding so that more people in need can be assisted,” said Fadillah.
I consider myself really fortunate. This is the first time I receive a food basket. I hope the government and the village chief will continue to help more needy people like us. Thank you for taking care of us.
I would like to thank the government for providing us with the food baskets. I have been suffering from seizures for nearly my entire life. Since I cannot work, this assistance is quite beneficial for me. I hope the government will continue to help us in future.
This is the third time I am receiving a food basket from the government. This time, I was surprised that they also gave me a walking frame for my mother’s convenience at home. I am grateful for the aid. I am sure the government will continue to help the people.

The food basket is a good initiative by the government. It helps to ease the burden of our family. We have many dependents. I am grateful and hope that such assistance will continue in the future.
I am very lucky to have been chosen to receive the food aid. It greatly reduces our financial burden as my husband is our family’s main provider.
I have a stoma and have been confined to a wheelchair for about two years now. Because the wheelchair I had before was in a bad shape following the first flood, the gift of a new wheelchair has made it easier for me to move around. I would like to thank the government for giving us what we really need.
