PETALING JAYA: Bright orange cubicles have been installed at community centres for homeless people in Kuala Lumpur, says Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa (pic)

He said that he directed the cubicles to be set up for the homeless who have been living in the community centres.

"Alhamdulilah, my directives to install the cubicles for the homeless were quickly done. I will work on providing blankets after this," he posted on his Twitter account on Tuesday (April 7).

Previously, photos from Annuar's Twitter account had shown that the homeless people living in the shelters were lying on single mattresses which were laid out on the floor.

The mattresses were also placed a metre apart from one another.

It was reported that more than 600 homeless people have been living at shelters, with 181 people at the Sentul Perdana community centre and 62 at the Tasik Ampang Hilir community hall.

The other shelters are the Setiawangsa community hall (95), the Alam Damai multi-purpose hall in Cheras (30), the homeless transit centre in Jalan Pahang (99) and the Anjung Singgah Jalan Jang Lekiu (142).
