KUCHING: About 3,000 low-income families will be receiving reusable diaper packs from the Rotary Pan Borneo Joint Club to help ease their economic burden.

The aim of the project, which the club is undertaking in collaboration with Yayasan Hasanah and Tanoti, is to provide reusable diaper packs which have been sewn and assembled by B40 seamstresses to low-income families and mothers with babies and toddlers in Sarawak.

Additionally, this project will also benefit 85 home seamstresses residing in both urban and rural areas by providing them with a source of income from sewing the diaper packs.

Minister for Women, Early Childhood and Community Well-being Development Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah who lauded the efforts made by the parties involved described the reusable diapers as economical in nature, especially for the B40s families.

“With Tanoti collaborating with the Rotary Club, I believed this is a win-win project and hope that this can be continued in the future and benefit more B40 families.

“The project is also beneficial especially in this difficult economic situation,” she said after officiating the handover ceremony of the Rotary Pan Borneo Joint Club Project at Tanoti House, near here, yesterday (Nov 27).

Meanwhile, Rotary Club District Governor 3310 Joanne Kam said through the project she hoped to improve the lives of the needy and provide lasting sustainable change.

She added that the project will be an eye-opener for the people involved as they get to understand further the needs of the low income families.

“Everybody has to step up and unite through teamwork and pool together our talent and resources,” she said.

About 28 Rotary Clubs in Sabah, Sarawak and Brunei will help to distribute the 3,000 reusable diaper packs to needy families in the state.
