RumahDayak.com and MERCY Malaysia were at Rh. Aji, Sungai Selepin, Bakong on Saturday 18th April 2009 to give free health services to the occupants of the longhouse. We brought in teams from the Family Planning office, dental unit, eye specialist and headed by Dr. Kenneth from Miri General Hospital.
Our quarter master for the event was Johnson from Petronas Carigali, who later did a demo on fire fighting to the women and elderly long house folks.

We would like to thank the contractor of a nearby oil palm estate for sending the contractors to fill up some part of the feeder road to the long house.
