SIBU: The Unit For Other Religions (Unifor) will continue to give its commitment to reach out to churches, temples and shrines in the state.

Its director Richard Lon said, this is because some of the houses of worship still do not know the role of Unifor towards non-Muslim religious institutions and what it can offer.

“Although it was established in 2017, its (Unifor) existence is still very new for some churches, temples and shrines.

“Unifor will now continue to approach the synagogue to inform us of our role,” he explained.

He said this when met by reporters after holding a meeting session with representatives from nine temples and two churches from the Dudong state constituency here on Sunday.

Lon was here at the invitation of Da Wang Gong Salim Temple Believers Association Chairman, Penghulu Ten Kim Loong.

Following this, he reminded other religious leaders in the state who intend to apply for funds from Unifor to submit it through their respective elected representatives.

This is because according to him, Unifor is based in Kuching and is not easy to contact online.

“Your representative is closer to you and he is the best person who can help you contact us or submit a relevant application,” he explained.

In other matters, Lon urged all non-Muslim houses of worship to register their respective institutions with the Registrar of Societies (ROS) in order to be eligible for Unifor grants.

He said the assistance from Unifor would be in the form of funds and infrastructure development such as repairs and upgrades.
