Persatuan Kontraktor Melayu Malaysia Negeri Perak (Perak Malay Contractors Association Malaysia) hosted a breaking of fast dinner with their members, business partners and media representatives to create a platform to forge closer ties and foster friendship among the guests in the spirit of Ramadan and as a run-up to Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
Joining in the meaningful event were representatives from Yayasan Bina Upaya Darul Ridzuan (YBU), Empayar Indera Sdn Bhd, CIDB, BPKU Negeri Perak, Jabatan Kerja Raya, Belati Wangsa (M) Sdn Bhd, PKMM Perak district committees, members of the association and their families, as well as friends from the media.
During the event, PKMM Perak handed over a cheque for RM30,000 to YUB’s Yayasan Kadir. This is an annual donation by the association to give back to the community. Yayasan Kadir takes care of 114 orphans, who will be chaperoned to Mydin this Saturday to shop for their Hari Raya clothes. This cash gift covers part of the expenses, plus duit raya for the children to make this festive season more joyous.
The nine district offices of PKMM Perak, namely Kerian; Larut, Matang & Selama; Hulu Perak; Kinta; Manjung; Batang Padang, Hilir Perak; Kuala Kangsar and Perak Tengah, each received a monthly sponsorship of RM1,100 to conduct activities within their individual district.
According to Chairman of PKMM Perak Datuk Wira Jamaluddin Bin Hj. Abdul Rahim (Uncle Jamal), there will be an opening ceremony by the Perak Menteri Besar after Hari Raya Aidilfitri for the association’s development project in Bandar Meru Raya Ipoh which consists of a hundred lots of apartment and 135 units of shoplots. With a strategic location, the prices of these units have already increased by RM40,000 within a short four-month period.
The association is also currently developing a skim mampu milik (affordable homes) in Lawan Kuda, Perak. They are initially developing ten out of fifteen acres for 106 units of 3-bedroom/2-bathroom single-storey terrace houses. With a built-up area of 1,000 sq. ft., selling price is from RM170,000. This project will be launched at the end of 2016.
