Dear friends and fellow Dayaks who are reading this post,
I share with you a respond to my status over at Facebook made by the ADUN for Pujut, YB Andy Chia. The respond was made with regards to the purchase of a building in Miri, by Mercy Malaysia, which shall serve as a shelter for those who needs a temporary place to stay while in Miri.
Happy 2009, James.
You know, Mercy Malaysia is raising fund to buy a house to provide temp shelter for family members of those who come to Miri from the interiors to seek medical treatment at the Miri General Hospital. I am the advisor to the Fund Raising Committee. We have Chinese, Malays, Indians, but looks like no Dayak, brother. This home will serve mainly the … Dayak community. I think Dayak should volunteer lah, brother, and must help too.
What a wonderful place Miri is, huh? Where got racial barriers? We are all brothers and sisters no matter what colour.
Must catch up for a chat, huh?
All the best!
I feel bad while reading the respond from our YB in Miri.. but maybe, the Dayaks were not inform of this mission earlier by Mercy Malaysia. Hence, I will take the cue and bring some of my Youth Committee to be part of this mission. Personally, I am still in the dark about how to go about with this mission, but, we need to start somewhere and not wait for others to do it.
