KUCHING: Krew Kelana Laut F Petrajaya presented assistance worth RM2,200 to 11 poor households in a ‘Simpulan Kasih Pengakap’ programme held at Kampung Semariang here on Wednesday.

According to the programme leader Huda Fakhira Bolhi, each household received assistance of about RM200 in terms of food aid and cash.

She added that during the one-day programme, the group also held a special activity at the last house which belongs to a senior citizen known as ‘Pak Lan’ from Kampung Semariang Batu Tanah Merah.

“We conducted a rewang (group work) at Pak Lan’s house whereby we helped clean his house, cook, as well as repair the dilapidated structure of the house.

“We also utilised our skills in gadget installation to improve some items in the house and make a cloth hanger for the family,” she said.

A total of 25 members participated in the programme which was held from 10am to 4pm.

The programme was held to ease the burden of the less fortunate, apart from exposing the local youth to volunteerism activities.
