Help for the needy

THE Special Affairs Department (JASA) under the Information, Communication and Culture Ministry went to the ground for the ‘JASA Prihatin’ programme at Taman Bukit Angkasa and PPR Kg Limau in Pantai Dalam, Kuala Lumpur.

The touching point programme was aimed at reaching out to the single mothers, chronically ill patients, orphans, old folks, the disabled, poor and families with problems.

The Federal Territory, Wangsa Maju, Titiwangsa, Lembah Pantai and Bandar Tun Razak parliamentary constituencies had identified people for the programme.

The programme which began in August saw its fourth series in Lembah Pantai where Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik presented the contribution to the respective individuals.

About 45 people received the contribution for this series.

Raja Nong Chik, who met with some of the recipients, said there were many people who were in need living in the city.

“We need to identify these individuals and reach out to them now and not only during festive seasons. At Lembah Pantai, our centre is always open to those who want help and we will try to help them,” he said.
