It was a meaningful day for residents of Kampong Sekiah in Behrang when officials of Yayasan Bina Upaya Darul Ridzuan (YBU) called on them recently. The villagers were briefed by V. Elanggo, the head of Communication Unit 1 Malaysia. Most of the questions fielded were related to the foundation’s roles and responsibilities.
The villagers were keen to know the kind of assistance available to them, especially in ways to improve their socio-economic standing. Elanggo spoke at length on micro-credits and how the system works. He also touched on YBU’s role in the provision and repairing of houses for the needy and the displaced. The terms and conditions for eligibility were spelt out for the consumption of the audience.
Present at the briefing were executive councillor, Dato’ Ramly Zahari and YBU’s Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Zainal Abidin Omar.
