THE HARDCORE poor household, Norride Bin Maidol, aged 34, a local Murut complained to DAP Sabah that he and his poor family had been deprived of PPRT poor housing assistance.
Their family had to stay at a dilapidated dwelling with deteriorating walls and leaking roof just to provide with little means for the entire less fortunate family. DAP Sabah urged the Government to offer the hardcore poor housing assistance to Norride’s family as he could not afford to build a decent home for his family.
Norride had no proper income but worked as a rubber tapper for a small rubber plantation owner to survive with less than RM500 per month that was grossly insufficient to feed his entire family of a house-wife and two dependent small growing children with the increasing prices of essential commodities.
