ISKANDAR PUTERI: In the spirit of community building and love for the environment, some 45 people came together to clean up the area in Puteri Harbour here.
Organised by the Puteri Harbour Residents Association (PHRA) committee, UEM Sunrise Berhad and Iskandar Puteri City Council, the gotong-royong aimed to cultivate stronger bonds between residents and those working in the area.
Iskandar Puteri councillor Choong Thong Yuen said this was among the first few events organised by PHRA here.
“The residents association was formed earlier this year to focus on creating more community-centered events for the people here.
“The committee is among eight other committees formed this year under my Kota Iskandar zone and we aim to have more such events in the future, ” he said during the gotong-royong.
Choong said there were eight areas in the Kota Iskandar zone, and that all had successfully formed RAs this year.
“At least five of the areas have held community programmes while the rest are expected to follow suit next year, ” he said.
UEM Sunrise Berhad Southern 1 director Jeff Saw Seong Keat, who is also a resident in the Puteri Harbour area, said such activities would make the area lively.
“The residents will be able to interact and get to know each other better.
“We hope to have more of such events, ” he said.
Saw said UEM Sunrise Berhad staff also took part in the gotong-royong.
