Monspace集团捐献25万令吉救济沙巴斗湖甘榜喜达耶(Kampung Hidayat water village)火灾灾黎,希望能尽一己之力协助遇难灾民早日重建家园。

甘榜喜达耶是安置早期逃难至沙巴的菲律宾难民违章屋区,7月1日大约下午3时许陷入火海,殃及250间木屋,灾民将近1500人,2人受伤送院。

据悉,斗湖消拯队赶到现场时,位於阿拔士路4哩的甘榜喜达耶早已火势猛烈,大火至少吞噬了上百间的木屋,大火在2小时後获得全面的控制。

Monspace集团执行长出席支票移交仪式,将捐献支票呈交於沙巴社区发展以及消费者事务(Sabah Minister of Community Development and Consumer Affairs cum Karambunai Assemblywoman)部长拿督(Datuk Jainab Ahmad Ayid)。

“居住於该区的居民生活本来就艰苦,再经历了以场大火後,让超过千名的居民失去家园,生活困顿的居民连维持日常生活都已成问题,更何况是重建家园”,Monspace集团执行长拿督斯里赖彩云说道。

“集团對於這一次的事件表示同情,在得知甘榜喜达耶灾黎的困境後,与有关当局取得联系,表示愿意捐献以协助灾黎重建家园。”

拿督斯里赖彩云也表示,“Monspace集团向来关心公益,定期捐献於慈善机构,参与国际大大小小的慈善活动,希望能藉由企业影响力,率领并影响社会大众投入公益慈善活动,让更多有需要的团体获得援助。”

Monspace集团所捐献的25令吉将被划分两部分使用,12万5千令吉将被分配於斗争市议会紧急援助部(Emergency Assistance Department of Tawau Municipal Council)用於协助在大火中痛失家园的甘榜喜达耶灾黎重建家园,馀下的款项则将分配协助也於不久前发生火灾的斗湖Karambunai 灾区居民。

拿督再纳接受媒体访问时,表示非常感谢Monspace集团对甘榜喜达耶火炎伸出援手,这笔善款将会帮助不少灾黎重建生活。

“感谢Monspace集团这次的捐献,让我们协助灾黎筹建家园的工作能更顺利,也让我们更有信心早日协助灾黎重建家园。”
