The Service Centres of DAP Bandar Kuching and Stampin will help to register the names and contacts of those families who are in real need of supply of essential food items during the Movement Control Order (MCO). This registration exercise will only be done through online, WhatsApp and phone calls as we are all under the MCO.
We have initially intended to send supply of food to these families in need. However, the Government has forbidden all NGOs from delivering supply of food to individual households. As such, we will forward all the names and contacts collected to the Welfare Department for the latter to supply essential food items to the families.
Undeniably, the MCO has a huge immediate impact on many families, especially those small and petty traders, the hawkers and daily-paid workers. Though the Prime Minister stressed that no one will be left out by the stimulus package, but we believe many will still be left out when it comes to implementation.There will also be delay in its implementation.
For instance, though the cash hand-outs to B40 families were intended to be given out in April (which is 2 days from today), the exact mechanism for the rolling out of the plan has yet to be made known.
To some families, the immediate challenge is to put food on the table everyday. This is especially so for the daily-paid workers who have little or no savings. To them, when work stops, income stops. The first 14 days of MCO is definitely tough on them, but the second 14-day MCO period will be a disaster.
As such, the team from DAP Kuching and Stampin service centres will do our small part to help to collect the names of those in urgent need of essential food supply to be delivered to their houses and forward them to the relevant government agencies. We will also do the follow-up to ensure that thesefamilies do receive the food items from the relevant government agencies.
