As we continue into our duduk rumah Movement Control Order, many of us tend to forget the fact that this MCO experience is very different for everyone. This is especially true for the homeless, who don’t have a home to stay in to begin with. In which case, what can they do, and who can they turn to during this period of time?
Well according to Berita Harian, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) has taken the initiative to ensure that over 510 homeless individuals within Kuala Lumpur have a place to sleep during the MCO period, by converting four large community halls and turning them into temporary shelters!
The homeless were even provided with basic essentials and most importantly, a mattress and a pillow each so they have a place to rest their heads.
What’s even better is the fact that these 510 homeless individuals have been screened by the Ministry of Health for Covid-19, and so far none of their results have returned positive. Their biometric data will be kept by the city to ensure that they can continue to provide these homeless individuals assistance.
This initiative is said to have cost the city council over RM 2 million, and donations are welcomed at the respective four halls that are involved in this project, which includes Pusat Komuniti Sentul Perdana, Dewan Serbaguna Alam Damai, Pusat Komuniti Setiawangsa, and Dewan Serbaguna Tasik Ampang Hilir.
During these tough times, every little bit helps, so we would like to extend our thanks to DBKL for thinking of the welfare of the homeless!
