#LahadDatu: Ministry hopes to raise over RM130,000 for kin of fallen fighters

The Housing and Local Government Ministry hopes to raise at least RM130,000 for the Tabung Wira Negara in aid of the families of security personnel killed in the fight against invaders in Lahad Datu.

Minister Datuk Seri Chor Chee Heung said it was in the midst of coming up with a mechanism for a minimum RM10 contribution from the salary of each ministry staff this month.

“We have around 13,000 staff working in agencies under our ministry. Hopefully, they will be generous and contribute more,” he told reporters here yesterday.

Earlier, Chor witnessed the signing of a corporate integrity pact between the Solid Waste Management and Public Cleaning Corporation (PPSPPA) and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

During the event, PPSPPA pledged to make deductions from the March salaries of all its staff, promising a contribution of over RM11,000 for the fund.
