MARUDI: Three fam­i­lies from Kam­pung Cina, who were made home­less by a fire on Mon­day, have re­ceived aid from As­sis­tant Min­is­ter of Lo­cal Govern­ment Datu Dr Pen­guang Mang­gil.

The Marudi assem­bly­man pre­sented the fam­i­lies with per­sonal con­tri­bu­tions RM1,000 each.

It is un­der­stood that the fire around noon not only gut­ted the three wooden houses, but also de­stroyed the sewing ma­chines of seam­stress Ong Lai Tung.

Ong said the police and school of uni­forms, as well as Hari Raya Aidil­fitri out­fits she had been work­ing on for cus­tomers, were all de­stroyed.

The 12 res­i­dents of the three house­holds also re­ceived food items from the Wel­fare Depart­ment.
