Rotary Club Of Kota Kinabalu PearlRain or shine, the Rotary movement must go on, and that's exactly what our Club continues to exemplify.
Recently on 18/01/21, RCKK Pearl went to the aid of twenty hardcore poor families living on the water village at Kampung Tanjung Aru Baru.
Ten of these families were those who have never received any food aid previously, and are struggling to survive the impact of the current Covid-19 pandemic restriction movement, where many family breadwinners have lost their jobs.
The other ten more families were not only suffering economically from the effects of the current pandemic, but have also suffered further blows to their lives when their homes were damaged by the recent storms.
One family whose house was completely washed away by rising tides and strong winds were temporarily housed at the small community hall at the kampung.
Despite heavy rainstorms during that time, our Club President Eliza Goh, bravely went solo on the delivery of the compassionate food-aid, mainly because of the current restriction movement that does not allow crowd gatherings, but also out of consideration for Club members' safety.
The food-aid consisted of basic daily necessities such as rice, sugar, oil, meehoon and eggs. Strict covid-19 pandemic SOP was observed, with only very restricted number of representatives for the targeted families present. The distribution was carried out at the kampung's community hall. Club President Eliza Goh was aided by the Ketua AJK Surau Kg Tg Aru Baru, Encik Hamzah Hj Saudi Baru, who was responsible for contacting the Club about these stricken villagers' plight.
The Club also donated five sets of headlights to the villagers' search-and-rescue team organised by Encik Hamzah, to help them search for any villagers' belongings that might have fallen into the water during the storm.
The amount of aid might look small in comparison to a lot of other aid given by other groups, but to those twenty families who were in dire need, this aid was vital and helped to make a difference.
As RCKK Pearl Club President Eliza Goh says, the Rotary compassionate movement must go on despite whatever challenges are being faced currently.
The Club would like to thank Supermarket Servay Penampang for partially sponsoring the food items for this delivery.
