KUCH­ING: Two needy fam­i­lies re­ceived their new houses from San­tubong MP Dato Sri Wan Ju­naidi Tuanku Jaa­far yes­ter­day.

They were Erni Fi­tri­ani from Kam­pung Te­meng­gong and Mohd Yusuf Ab­dul­lah @ Se­gan from Kam­pung Temedak.

“The el­i­gi­ble peo­ple are the very poor, houses in di­lap­i­dated con­di­tion, the dis­abled, and vic­tims of fire or nat­u­ral dis­as­ter,” said Wan Ju­naidi when met at Mohd Yusuf’s house yes­ter­day.

The houses were built based on ISO stan­dards and built at a cost of RM70,000 each. What makes the aid unique is that the money (for con­struc­tion )is pro­vided by pri­vate com­pa­nies but the con­struc­tion works were done by the vil­lagers them­selves, thus cre­at­ing job op­por­tu­ni­ties for the vil­lagers, he said.

He urged pri­vate com­pa­nies which do busi­ness here (Sarawak) to give back to the com­mu­nity by help­ing to build houses for the needy.
