Negri Sembilan Hindu Priests Association president Sivasri Dr Ananda Gobi Sivachariyar, who also runs the Sri Ragavendra Ashram, said department officials and RMC reps made their rounds from 6am to 8pm to render assistance.

The report stated the five homeless people were given a Covid-19 test and general medical check-up before being brought to the centre.

Ananda Gobi said the centre would also try to provide them with job training and find employment for them.

The RMC centre manager said the home operates with the support of the state government and state exco member Nicole Tan Lee Koon’s office. They currently have nine residents who are in a similar situation.
