KUCHING: Sarawak United National Youth Organisation (Saberkas), through the Malaysian Red Crescent (MRC) Sarawak, donated food items to elderly homes, in conjunction with the World Humanitarian Day this year.

According to a press statement, MRC Sarawak recently organised a humanitarian programme to support the needy, and volunteers from MRC Sarawak and a group of students from SEGi College Sarawak came forward to help distribute the food items sponsored by Saberkas.

Accompanying the team were political secretary to the chief minister Tan Kai and Kuching South City Council (MBKS) councillor Kho Teck Wan.

The team visited Cheshire Home Kuching and Rumah Seri Kenangan Kuching to distribute the food items.

MRC Sarawak director Chai King Sing said on behalf of MRC Sarawak, he expressed his special gratitude for the generosity in contributing the food items.

“This gesture has definitely benefited the two homes. I would also like to acknowledge students from SEGi College Sarawak as well as our very own volunteers in taking time and effort in this project.

“MRC Sarawak has been actively involved in various community services to reach out to more people, especially vulnerable groups. We welcome donations and contributions from organisations to help us help more people,” he added.
