A total of 64 people from 22 villages, whose houses were damaged by the tropical storm recently, received financial aid amounting to RM44,300 or between RM500 and RM2,500 each from Labuan Corporation (LC).
Labuan member of Parliament Datuk Rozman Isli said the structures and roofs of their houses were blown away by strong winds and damaged by the fallen branches and uprooted trees.
“We understand the devastating impact on the disaster victims who struggled to cope with the extreme weather. This would have a direct financial impact on them.
“As such, we are honoured to step forward and make a contribution that will be used to provide immediate relief to help the affected families recover in the wake of the unprecedented natural disaster.
“This is our way of helping the unfortunate and hope our contribution will help to lessen their burden in the repair work,” he said when giving away the aid here, yesterday. — Bernama
Rozman, who is also LC chairman, said corporate social responsibility (CSR) has always been an integral aspect of LC’s corporate initiatives and it is always looking for opportunities to contribute to society. — Bernama
