Background
The 36-door longhouse at Ng Sumpa caught fire on 13th May
2014, leaving 120 beneficiaries homeless. MERCY Malaysia
Sarawak Chapter responded to the ill-fated event by distributing
hygiene kits. The hygiene kits distributed contained bath
soap, cleaning detergent, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste,
towel, sarong, pails, water scoop and clothes brush. Other
items distributed to the affected families included 8 bags of
used clothes, new plates, bowls, cups, mugs, spoon and forks
donated in-kind by donors.
MERCY Malaysia efforts
MERCY Malaysia received heart-warming in-kind donations
from Brands Outlets Boulevard Branch, MAA (Shomos) and
Limetree Hotel Kuching that were distributed to those affected
by the fire. The affected families were accommodated in a
temporary stay while some lived with their relatives nearby.
The aftermath of the catastrophic event destroyed their
belongings as well as their harvest for the year.
