SEMPORNA: The less privileged are not sidelined during the arrival of festive seasons, with the government channelling various assistance to help them.
Senallang Assemblyperson, Datuk Nasir Tun Sakaran, said it is the responsibility of leaders and the government to ensure the people to live a comfortable life and enjoy the Aidilfitri festivities.
“The initiative shows the government’s concern and commitment in helping the needy,” he said during the presentation of personal Aidilfitri contribution ceremony for 1,500 recipients consisting of widows, single mothers, employees of Senallang ADUN, UPPM, Native Court, and poor families at Inabah Kamal Multipurpose Hall, yesterday.
Nasir believes that the contribution will reduce their burden in preparing for Aidilfitri celebration.
In another development, he hopes that this year’s Raya celebration will close the ties of all ethnicities in the country by visiting each other during the festive season.
He said the practice will strengthen both the relations and unity of various communities in Malaysia. –SayangSabah
