Over 200 houses renovated, rebuilt under KKMM CTU programme


24 February, SELAMA – The Information Department has renovated and built new houses in six states through the Connecting the Unconnected (CTU) programme organised by the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (KKMM), said its director-general Datuk Ibrahim Abdul Rahman.

He said the projects to repair and build new homes which involved more than 200 houses with an allocation of RM25,000 for each house, were implemented through gotong-royong activities.

“The projects carried out in Kelantan, Pahang, Johor, Perak, Sabah and Sarawak were aimed at giving the poor, especially those in the rural areas, more comfortable lives thereby helping to reduce the poverty gap.”

He said this to Bernama at the closing of a gotong-royong programme to repair houses at Kampung Tua here today, by Selama assemblyman Datuk Mohamad Daud Mohamad Yusoff.
Five houses were repaired in Selama state constituency which took less than two weeks to complete, he added.

Ibrahim said as the programme was well-received, it would be continued from time to time, adding that the aid proved the sincerity of the Information Department in helping the less fortunate.

A recipient Rosdan Tazri, 30, in thanking the department for repairing the walls and roofing of his house said, the aid had helped ease his family’s burden.
