MCPF needs RM4 mil­lion

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

JO­HOR BARU: The Malaysia Crime Prevention Foun­da­tion (MCPF) is hop­ing to re­ceive an an­nual grant of RM4 mil­lion from the gov­ern­ment in the 2017 Bud­get.

Its se­nior vice-chair­man, Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, said the pro­vi­sion was im­por­tant as the MCPF needed funds to im­ple­ment var­i­ous com­mu­nity pro­grammes in­clud­ing crime aware­ness cam­paigns. “We do not have an an­nual fund and it was our mem­bers be­fore this who took the ini­tia­tive to im­ple­ment the pro­grammes.

“We hope the gov­ern­ment will con­sider giv­ing an al­lo­ca­tion for MCPF in this year’s bud­get,” he said yes­ter­day. – Ber­nama
