About 320 poor families in the constituency had gathered at the Tebing Tinggi field to receive the aid, which contained rice, oil, flour, salt and other daily necessities, aimed at reducing their burden.
The recipients, consisting of the hardcore poor, single mothers and the unemployed, were also treated to a simple breakfast of nasi lemak, egg tarts, curry puffs and coffee.
