A Doa Kesyukuran ceremony was held yesterday in conjunction with the completion of an upgrade project for the Kampong Sungai Bunga jetty.
The residents of the village – which is located on Berambang Island – use the jetty regularly for their commute to work and school.
The Kampong Sungai Bunga Consultative Council along with the Meraih Barkah Group have taken the initiative to upgrade the existing infrastructure provided by the government.
This included using concrete to strengthen the jetty and build additional stairs, which was important as during periods of extreme low tides, existing stairs were unable to reach boats, thus making it difficult for passengers to cross safely.
Other facilities added include handrails to assist the elderly or differently abled, as well as seats in the rest area for passengers.
The ceremony was held to express gratitude to Allah the Almighty for the successful implementation of the project.
Legislative Council member, Penghulu of Mukim Kota Batu and Acting Penghulu of Mukim Kianggeh Yang Berhormat Naim bin Haji Kamis, was the guest of honour.
The event saw the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah along with a speech by the Acting Village Head of Kampong Sungai Bunga Zaini bin Haji Salleh. Donations from the Meraih Barkah Group were also presented by the guest of honour to recipients.
