SHAH ALAM, June 24 — A total of 20 members of Team Selangor will volunteers during the Selangor Penyayang roadshow in Dataran Pantai Morib, Kuala Langat, tomorrow.
Its secretariat head Syahaizel Keman said the selected members will assist in directing the visitors to each booth run by the state government subsidiaries.
“Should they run into any difficulties signing up for any incentives, these volunteers would help in referring them to the person in charge.
“At the same time, five volunteers will be assigned to the Selangor Saring health screening programme. Selcare, who anticipates a large turnout for the event, requested that this be done,” he told SelangorKini today.
The roadshow, which is open from 7.30am to 5.30pm, will include a variety of events such musical performances by artists, aerobics competitions, cooking competition, flower arranging, local sports, skateboarding, and e-sports..
The programme involving state government’s subsidiaries had kicked off in Taman Kosas, Ampang, last week.
The next event after tomorrow will be held at Stadium Utama, Kuala Selangor, on July 2.
This is followed by Dataran Boulevard, Petaling Jaya, on July 23, and Batu Caves public field, Gombak, on July 31.
With an allocation of RM600 million, the initiative replaces the previous Peduli Rakyat initiative, allowing more individuals benefit from the state government’s programmes.
Included in this is Bantuan Kehidupan Sejahtera Selangor (Bingkas), which replaces Kasih Ibu Smart Selangor (Kiss) and will assist up to 30,000 families rather than the 25,000 it did previously..
The Selangor Saring free health screening programme to identify chronic illnesses is also conducted during the roadshow, which is expected to benefit up to 5,000 people, particularly those in high-risk categories.
