Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department (Islamic Affairs and DBKU) Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Junaidi, who is also Pantai Damai assemblyman, said this was important to enable assistance to be channeled to the needy.

He said this when distributing aid to the needy in Bandar Baru Samariang and Taman Samariang Aman today.

“This programme is my routine and as an elected representative, we must continue to provide services to the people under any circumstances as this is a trust,” he said.

He added that such programmes would continue to ensure that assistance would be provided to those in need.

Earlier, Dr Abdul Rahman participated in a Kayuhan Harmoni Mesra Ummah programme organised by the Department of Islamic Affairs,Sarawak (JAIS) at Kampung Sungai Lumut and Kampung Buntal with the objective of caring for the poor.
