SIBU: The pro tem Malaysian Navy Veteran Association Sarawak (PVTLDMS) is awaiting approval from Veteran Affairs Department (JHEV) for its registration, says its pro tem president Mohd Safree Mohd Kassim.

“We formed the pro tem committee last month, and sent our application for registration on Feb 7.

“Being a Sarawak-based veteran navy association, we hope to take care of our ex-navy personnel in the state better,” he said yesterday.

The association, which has 120 members, has slated its general meeting for next month.

According to Mohd Safree, many veterans required health care, and thus the association would follow up with JHEV to see how to assist them.

Meanwhile, the association through its Sarawak ex-navy whatsapp group, has raised some money for the family of the late William Olien Juhi in Kuching.

William passed away recently.
