SIBU: A widow with seven children, the youngest of them three years old, received various forms of assistance from several individuals on Thursday.
Lucy Tiang and her children are living at a house in Salim near SJK(C) Kwong Kok. Lucy’s
husband died from nasopharyngeal cancer a few months ago.
The assistance programme was spearheaded by Wong Hie Ping, a councillor of Sibu Municipal Council. The benefactors helped extend Lucy’s house and build a gravel road to link the house to the main road.
United People’s Party (UPP) Community Service Board Sibu chairman Dato Andrew Wong and the board’s social community development deputy chairman Andrew Ting were also present at the event.
