Sabah to distribute 1,100 food baskets to Indian community

KOTA KINABALU: A total of 1,100 food baskets will be distributed to members of the Indian community of Sabah to ease their burden due to Covid-19 as well as a gift for their celebration of Deepavali on Thursday (November 4).

Chief Minister of Sabah, Datuk Hajiji Noor(Photo) said the donation is to bring a ray of joy to Indian families ahead of the Deepavali celebration.

He said the government, through its agencies, channeled various aids to people in the B40 group to alleviate their difficulties.

“The aid to the food basket for the people of the B40 group, including the Indian community, demonstrates the government’s concern for the livelihoods of the people of Sabah,” he said in a statement today.

Hajiji said that the spirit of the Malaysian family who described the three main axes of inclusion, togetherness and contentment was also inherent in the contribution.

“My family and I wish a happy Deepavali to all members of the Indian community in Sabah in particular and across the country in general.

“Even in a low-key atmosphere, as we still have to adhere to Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), and we have the opportunity to celebrate this festival in the spirit of friendliness and gratitude as a sign that we are a Malaysian family,” said he declared. noted.-Bernama
