Women, Family, and Community Development Minister: Contact Talian Kasih To Report Senior Citizens Li
If you know a couple of senior citizens who live alone, the Women, Family and Community Development Minister, Datuk Seri Rina urges netizens to report the matter over to the Social Welfare Department (JKM) so that their conditions can be monitored. This was due to a recent case of an elderly couple who were found dead at their house in Pasir Gudang, Johor last weekend.
Datuk Seri Rina said that any information can be channeled by contacting Talian Kasih at 15999 or sending a WhatsApp message to 019-2615999. “We can mobilise our volunteers as well as JKM officers to go to the ground to monitor the situation,” she told reporters.
The elderly couple’s bodies, one of a 68-year-old man and his 61-year-old wife were found laying in the living room of their home in Taman Scientex, Pasir Gudang. To prevent this from happening again, do reach out if you discovered any old folks around your area that are living alone.
