The Sikh families living in three houses involved in a fire incident on 15 Nov in Serdang, Selangor, have received some cash and assistance in kind.
Member of Parliament for Puchong Gobind Singh Deo had visited the families on the night of the incident and gave each family a cash assistance RM500 each.
Malaysian Punjabi Chambers of Commerce and Industry (MPCCI) president Daljit Singh had also paid them a visit and gave a cash assistance of RM1,000 to each of the families.
The fire victims had also received some assistance from the Sikhs in the area and the Sikh Welfare Society Malaysia.
One of the three houses was completely destroyed in the fire. A well-wisher had pledged to provide the family a temporary shelter.
Well wishers who want to assist further can contact Jagtar Singh Taree (012.6474404) or Boghar Singh from Sikh Naujawan Sabha Malaysia (016.2187772). Both of them had visited the victims this morning.
