Paitan Mission Committee reaches out to flood victims

By: ds and bell

Henry Wong and the local parishioners
Sandakan : The continuous heavy downpour, the whole of last week had caused many houses in the villages, along the Paitan river to be submerged under water.

Some of the flood victims had to move to the mission house at Kg Dalamas, which served as a temporary 'relief centre'. The situation, has since returned to normal.
