KUCHING: The services of 10 counselling experts will be engaged to support the families of those killed in the Sarawak helicopter crash.
The counsellors would be divided into three groups, said Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim.
One group will be stationed at the hotels where family members are staying, another group at the Royal Malaysian Air Force base and the last group at the Sarawak general hospital.
Rohani said counselling for the families was very important to prepare them to accept the loss of their loved ones.
The family members would be called to the hospital to identify the bodies after the post-mortem and DNA tests were completed.
Once all the procedures have been completed, arrangements will be made to send the bodies home.
Families of the six people involved in the tragedy had started arriving in Kuching since Friday. — Bernama
