KDCA Youth extends helping hand to villagers

15th February, 2016

By IZHAM WAIDI

RANAU: About 300 villagers in Merungin received aid in the form of rice, clothes, school uniforms and many more donated by the public and presented by the Kadazan Dusun Cultural Association’s Youth Council.

Members of the council also helped to paint the surau in the village located about an hour from Ranau town.

Led by programme co-ordinator, Yannik Mohd Anuar, they spent time playing sepak takraw and mingling with the residents over a barbecue.

Yannik said they hoped to attract youths to join the council in its efforts to preserve the Kadazan Dusun traditions and customs.

“We carry out charity work as well as activities to promote our culture,” he said.

The people in Kg Merungin were pleased to welcome the visitors and even looked forward to seeing them again on a similar programme.

Saidah Mustapha was thankful for the assistance rendered and said the village was now easily accessible from Ranau and Kota Marudu with the new road completed.

The Kadazan Dusun Cultural Association’s Youth Council was established last year and chaired by Ceasar Mandela Malakun.

Last Christmas, they visited Kg Nawawon also in Ranau, to distribute Christmas gifts and bring cheer to the villagers. Meanwhile, also present yesterday were KDCA deputy president, Datuk Othman Minudin and Kundasang assemblyman, Datuk Dr Joachim Gunsalam.

Dr Joachim commended the council for their effort and pointed out that KDCA was meant for everyone in the Kadazan Dusun community, regardless of their political leanings.

“The association aims to unite the people regardless of religion because what matters is the preservation of our culture for future generations,” he said.
