BINTULU: Much to the relief of the residents of 19-door Rumah Chendang Anggau longhouse near Tatau, Bintulu, they received roofing sheets worth RM36,000 donated by Hormat Pasifik Sdn Bhd, an oil palm plantation company operating nearby.
Plantation managers Laing Ngau and Charles Sibat handed over the roofing sheets to longhouse chief Tuai Rh Chendang Anggau during a simple ceremony held recently.
Stephen Sani, the company’s project manager said the donation was one of many corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes undertaken by members of the KTS Group of Companies.
It also upholds the ‘We care, We grow,’ spirit of the slogan of KTS 50th anniversary celebration.
“The residents here have been very cooperative to the company and the act is a token of our appreciation.
“Ample job opportunities will be made available once the palm oil mill nearby commences operation by 2014.
“Local residents will then be able to sell their fresh fruit bunches without incurring additional transportation costs,” Stephen added.
Meanwhile, longhouse chief Chendang Anggau, 52, thanked the company for their continuous support and assistance.
“The aid is timely as we are in the midst of improving and upgrading our facilities in the longhouse,” he said.
He also hoped both parties will continue to maintain the good relationship.
