During the Movement Control Order (MCO), Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) took a few initiatives to ensure that the homeless people around Kuala Lumpur are well protected from the risks of contracting the Covid-19 virus.

One of those initiatives being, setting up temporary shelters for the homeless and installing cubicles in some temporary shelters too. This move came forward to encourage social distancing between everyone in the shelter.

But in a surprising turn of events, the centralisation of the homeless people under one roof made it easier for long lost family members and companies to trace back their family members and past employees.

DBKL took to their Facebook page on 9 May to announce that various people from the temporary shelter had found their long lost family members or their previous employment company.

This is a positive outcome that not many had expected or saw it coming.

In their Facebook statement, DBKL stated that they had received a number of requests from companies and family members stating that they want to bring the relevant people from the shelter back home since the festive season is near.

DBKL granted them permission, however there were a few procedures which they needed to adhere by. These procedures include signing a “Surat Aku Janji” or a pledge stating that they will take care of the individuals that they are bringing back from the shelter.

DBKL also assured that everyone in the temporary shelter had been screened for Covid-19 and the test results came back negative. We are glad to hear that families are being reunited again and some people’s previous employment companies are taking the initiatives as well.

Our nation’s battle with Covid-19 is still not over yet, so please continue to practice social distancing. Stay safe and take care.
