Often though while we have our chai latte on one hand and smartphone on the other, we forgot that many places on the other side of Malaysia are still far-fetched from our big cities, where we could enjoy things that we often take for granted. We assumed water and electric supply will be there for sure; all you need is to apply and pay for the meters, and the rest ismagic.
But in a lot of rural places in Sarawak, most of the time one's wish is simple but often non existent-
"Please, we need water supply" or
"I wish we have road access, so my sick mother can be drive down to clinic instead of being physically carried down" or
" Diesel for generator cost almost RM 300 a month, and that's only for few hours at night. Perhaps solar lamp will help us save a lot of money, and my children can study at night too."
So whenever you are sitting in a hipster cafe, sipping away your freshly brewed coffee, remember- some of our friends in Sarawak could only dream to have such luxury one day.
As little as RM50 (5 cups of coffee) , you can help us return their basic rights as a Malaysian citizen who deserves to enjoy the basic infrastructures as much as we do.
