Southeast Johor Development Authority (Kejora) has donated almost RM1.4mil through various corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives to the people of Johor.

Kejora chairman Datuk Seri Che Zakaria Mohd Salleh said its CSR had benefitted 8,168 recipients in Kota Tinggi and Mersing through food, education and financial aid programmes.

“We have allocated RM889,150 to run 13 CSR programmes from January this year.

“Another RM500,000 was given to the Johor Disaster Fund to be used by the state government to conduct similar programmes on a larger scale,” he said when met at his office in Taman Bukit Dahlia, Johor Baru.

Che Zakaria said Kejora had also allocated RM13,000 to help storm victims in Tanjung Sedili, Kota Tinggi.

“The storm affected more than 200 houses in Kampung Teluk Jeri Luar, Kampung Teluk Jeri Dalam, Tanah Putih and Kampung Sri Gading.

“The allocation is to help those whose houses have been destroyed or damaged,” he added.

Meanwhile, Che Zakaria who is also Permas assemblyman, said the state assembly sitting should focus on people’s welfare as well as vaccination efforts by Johor government.

“In Permas, we have imam, bilal and committee members that have not been vaccinated, forcing them to close their doors.

“Another issue is flash floods in Pasir Gudang, which occurred twice this year, so I hope that assemblymen will bring up issues that affect the people and keep politics out,” he said.

Che Zakaria added that he would also table a motion to vaccinate all teachers in the state before Education Ministry reopened schools in September. — By REMAR NORDIN
