A LANDSLIDE victim has appealed for help from the authorities to rectify his problem after the mishap occurred about a month ago.
Haji Salam bin Haji Ahmad, who resides at No 3, Simpang 33, Jalan Pengkalan Batang/Tinggi in Kampong Putat, suffered the mishap on January 25 when a landslide affected his backyard.
Haji Salam’s family of eight now lives in his sibling’s house down the hill.
“Authorities from the Fire and Rescue Department as well as from the Community Development Department came to inspect the site on the day of the incident with canvas put there to prevent further soil erosion.
“But I still need assistance to remove the earth that has devastated the interiors of my house.”
“I was offered a flat accommodation in Jalan Subok or Tasek Lama, but it is not suitable for my big family,” he added.
