Jabu gives grants to Orang Ulu community

MIRI: Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Alfred Jabu yesterday fulfilled his promise to the Orang Ulus by giving away MRP grants to the community even though he is from Betong.

Telang Usan assemblyman Dennis Ngau represented the Layar assemblyman in handing over the grants to the recipients at Dynasty Hotel here yesterday.

The recipients were Long Terawan SIB church (RM20,000), Persatuan Kebangsaan Kenyah Sarawak (RM20,000) and Persatuan Kayan Sarawak, Miri branch (RM20,000).

Persatuan Kayan Sarawak Miri branch chairman Philip Ngo, Persatuan Kebangsaan Kenyah Sarawak vice-president Anthony Kule Lalo and Long Terawan SIB church representative Charles Baya received the grants from Dennis. Dennis thanked Jabu for his sincerity in helping the Orang Ulu community.

Jabu never neglects the Orang Ulu community even though he is in Kuching serving as deputy chief minister and his concern can be seen by his many visits to the Orang Ulu hinterland, he said.

Meanwhile, Philip representing the recipients also thanked Jabu for the grants.

We strongly support Jabus wisdom in looking into the affairs of the Orang Ulu and Penan communities in Baram, he said further.

At the same time, Belaga assemblyman and Assistant Minister of Culture and Heritage Liwan Lagang also gave an MRP grant of RM10,000 to Persatuan Kayan Sarawak, Miri branch.
