One of the biggest worries after the Covid-19 Movement Control Order (MCO) was activated was the well being of the homeless.
Thankfully, our government acted fast, gathered them and placed them in shelters where they were provided with food, necessities and can practice social distancing.
Now, the authorities are taking the next step to help the homeless in an effort to ensure that they get back on their feet, by providing them with the necessary training they need in order to help them secure jobs.
About 360 homeless people will undergo training and motivation courses before starting work after Hari Raya Aidilfitri, as according to The Star.
Tan Sri Annuar Musa, the Federal Territories Minister said that 300 of them will attend courses in Sepang, Selangor while the other 60 will be sent to a training centre in Kuantan, Pahang for three months.
“We found that 60 of them have some problems, especially those who had been involved with drugs but are now healthy and want to work. They need to go through a long-term recovery process and that is why we are sending them to attend the course in Kuantan,” he said.
“The other 300 people, have yet to get accustomed to a scheduled and disciplined routine. The group needs to undergo a training process. They have the potential which can’t be put to practice yet,” he added after distributing contributions to the homeless for Hari Raya.
He emphasised that the efforts to provide them with the appropriate training is to ensure that they never have to return to homelessness, and that after they’ve completed the courses, they will have job options through interviews and those not selected will be recruited into the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) team to assist with cleanup and beautification programmes.
It’s honestly amazing to see that the homeless in Malaysia are finally getting a shot at rebuilding their livelihoods thanks to the assistance of the government.
We wish nothing but the best to the homeless people starting off their journeys through the training courses.
