PPB SPONSORS WELLS FOR ORANG ASLI IN TANJONG GONG, CINI, PAHANG
In 2015, PPB sponsored the construction of ten wells for the Jakun orang asli community in Simpai, Pekan. The wells now provide clean water to 19 families with a total of more than 140 persons. PPB has decided to reach out to more orang asli and has committed to sponsor another 10 wells.
In June 2016, six new wells were constructed for the Jakun orang asli community in Tanjong Gong, Cini. These six wells are able to serve 43 families with a total of more than 170 persons. The four remaining wells will be completed by end-2016.
For this sponsorship, PPB purchased the materials and the community itself provided the labour to build the wells.
