The Orang Asli settlers of Kampong Ayer Denak, Tronoh played hosts to members of Y’s Men’s Club Ipoh and the Perak Malayalee Association recently. The villagers, numbering some 600-odd, turned up in force to welcome their guests, who were on a tour to better acquaint themselves with the living conditions of the Orang Asli there.
Village chief, Tok Batin Ariff bin Ngah Omar was on hand to receive the visitors. They were then introduced to the village action committee made up of members of the community. The day-long programme ended with the handing over of food parcels by the visitors to the villagers.
It was an enlightening day for members of the two organisations. They plan to visit similar villages in Tapah and Chemor in the near future.
