MoF considers building Rumah Mesra Rakyat for flood victims

Those whose houses were completely destroyed by the floods could apply for the housing programme

THE Finance Ministry (MoF) through Syarikat Perumahan Negara Bhd (SPNB) will consider allowing the construction of Rumah Mesra Rakyat for flood victims nationwide.

Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan said those whose houses were completely destroyed by the floods could apply for the housing programme under the SPNB.

“Tomorrow I will get detailed data from SPNB about the assistance needed by flood victims whose houses were completely destroyed.

“For example, like in previous years, flood victims who have lost their houses due to floods in Kampung La have applied for the Rumah Mesra Rakyat assistance and they were assisted by local community leaders,” he told reporters after handing over aid to 200 flood victims at SK Kampung La in Hulu Besut today.

Ahmad also welcomed other parties to come forward to help the affected flood victims build new homes.

Besut Malaysian Civil Defence Force officer Captain Ramlan Ros Wajid was reported to have said that 11 houses in Kampung La were swept away by gushing flood waters, while another house was badly damaged and had to be repaired before it can be occupied. — Bernama
