MUKAH: Tellian assemblyman Yussibnosh Balo visited Kampung Tellian Daya (Tellian Ulu) fire victims here today (June 18) to check on their wellbeing.

During the visit, he also handed over cash donation to Busang Belalan, 73, whose house was destroyed in a fire a week ago.

Three house owners, whose houses were partly damaged, also received donation from the former Balingian assemblyman.

Penghulu Bonaventure Juana Lupuih, who oversees Kampung Tellian Daya (Tellian Ulu), Kampung Seri Tellian (Tellian Tengah) and Kampung Tellian Tradisi, was also present for the handover ceremony.

Busang and his son’s family involving nine individuals lost their home in a fire at about 3pm on June 10.

All of them escaped safely and they are currently staying at their neighbour’s house nearby.
