A CHARITY organisation has come forward to help two teenagers living alone in a rented house after their father was admitted to Bintulu Hospital, Sarawak, for Covid-19 early last month.

Concerned over the plight of the siblings, the Pirates Troopers Legacy decided to donate cash and food items to the duo who live in Kampung Penakub Hilir, Mukah.

The organisation’s chief Lawrence Lambai handed over the contribution to Christmas Tik and her 14-year-old brother.

The siblings lived in a longhouse in Bawan Bukut before moving in with their father.

The NGO’s spokesman Nicholas Jimbun said the father was believed to have suffered a heart attack.
