TWENTY people including the elderly and single mothers from low-income households in Segambut, Kuala Lumpur, received food aid from Segambut Federal Territories Residents Representative Council (MPPWP).

Segambut MPPWP chairman Datuk Daniel Ling Sia Chin hoped the aid comprising fresh produce, rice, instant noodles and face masks would lighten their financial burden.“Those from the B40 group are the most heavily impacted by the uncertainties brought about by the pandemic,” said Lim, who is also Segambut MCA chief.

Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Jalaluddin Alias launched the event held at How Lim Kong temple in Segambut Industrial Park.

He applauded MCA and MPPWP for the initiative, saying that community leaders played an important role in helping the needy amid these difficult times.

“The Covid-19 pandemic and the economic uncertainty that comes with it has affected everyone, regardless of their background.

“It is time we put aside our differences and work together to help everyone to ensure no one is left behind,” he said.

Jalaluddin urged other community leaders in Kuala Lumpur to emulate Segambut MPPWP and the MCA to provide aid to city folk.

He also announced a RM10,000 allocation to the temple for its maintenance expenses and daily activities.Also present were Segambut MIC chief Datuk Sivakumar Nadraja, temple chairman Tan Chin Hup and other local community leaders.
