“The people in this village still do community work apart from emphasising on enhancing cooperation and understanding among them.”
Talib hoped the villager would preserve their values and traditions in the interest of the future generation.
The even was jointly organised by Lembaga Amanah Kebajikan Islam Bintulu (Lakib), Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), Jepak Branch and Bintulu Divisional Administration.
