Boxes of bottled mineral water being transported to Pulau Banggi.

KOTA KINABALU: The first shipment of bottled water reached the parched northern Pulau Banggi yesterday night but islanders will only get it today.

Assistant district officer for Banggi Awang Shahrin Awang Bakar said the 1,300 crates of bottled water would be distributed after a handing over ceremony by Banggi state assemblyman Datuk Abdul Mijul Unaini.

He told The Star when contacted yesterday that the bottled water was sourced from Kota Kinabalu and transported by lorry and reached Kudat this morning.

The bottles will be distributed to the hospital and islanders at three villages first.

“We have another shipment of 1,700 cartons after the first batch.”

Kudat district officer Sapdin Ibrahim said they appreciated any contributions from NGOs.
