SANDAKAN: An allocation of RM6 million to fund the construction of Kompleks Penyayang Taman Cahaya near hear, is proof of the state government’s concern for the well-being of the less fortunate, said Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.
He said the complex, completed in 2010, was a training centre for the blind among others to become masseurs, craftsmen and also to showcase their talents.
“Even though there were obstacles and problems to develop the complex, with all-out effort and concern from the state government on the target group’s needs, finally it was fully completed,” he said when launching the complex in Pekan Muhibbah here today.
Musa said there were still some improvements and development that need to be done in Pekan Muhibbah to ensure that its residents received the facilities they needed.
He said among others, in the works were a people’s housing project, police station, bus terminal, Sandakan Municipal Council mini stalls and the Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Libaran. (BI)
