COMBI Promoter Program Briefing

Filed under: RA — mollyosc @ 6:12 am

This briefing has been held as follows :-

Date : 27 July 2011 (Wednesday)

 Time : 8.30pm to 9.30pm

Venue : TSNRA Clubhouse

This briefing was given by officers from

Pejabat Kesihatan Daerah Barat Daya

 1.  Tuan Haji Saidi B. Mohd. Noor

 2.  Cik Syakirah Bt. Shabudin

Around 50 residents attended this briefing.

Tuan Haji Saidi started his briefing by explaining the dangers of dengue fever. Then he added that dengue outbreak can be avoided by reducing or eliminating the possible breeding ground for Aedes mosquito in our Taman.

Unfortunately, during dengue outbreaks,  the officers from Pejabat Kesihatan had some problems entering premises to find possible breeding places for Aedes mosquito. A number of residents refused to allow them to enter their premises because of fear of fines and others were afraid to do so for fear of robbery. Furthermore,  when they carried out fogging, many residents closed their windows and doors. This has made it difficult to kill the mosquitoes before they can cause harm. He said that it is very unfair to blame Pejabat Kesihatan for not carrying out their duties.

We need to train a COMBI Promoter Team in this Taman to organise some activities to educate the residents so that we can work together to prevent dengue outbreak in this Taman. We must encourage as many residents as possible to join in these activities as prevention of dengue fever is a joint community effort.

If you wish to join the COMBI team or need more information, please contact  Mr CJ Wong (012-4278082).

NGOs & NGIs

Do you know, Penang Island generates 960 TONS OF SOLID WASTE PER DAY! The MPPP spends RM83 million, or 37 per cent of its budget on waste disposal in 2009;  64 per cent of our solid waste comes from households. Kitchen waste that can be composted forms over 60 per cent of household waste. If every household plays its part in composting, we would reduce significantly our waste and save tens of millions of our precious tax to be better used.

As part of the Penang State Government’s campaign to make Penang a leading state in sustainable development and, in particular, Georgetown an international liveable city, government, public, civil society, corporations etc. must work together and contribute to this process.

The Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang (MPPP) is strongly supporting this campaign. Dr. Lim Mah Hui, the NGO representative in the MPPP, has taken the initiative to gather non-governmental organisations and individuals (NGOs and NGIs) to increase public awareness and knowledge on how to recycle and compost kitchen waste.

This initiative called “Protecting our environment from home” through composting is under the sponsorship of MPPP. The above NGOs and NGIs have agreed to combine their knowledge and efforts to hold demonstration on different methods of composting kitchen waste. We will bring this knowledge to the public by holding the demonstration at Queensbay Mall, Bayan Lepas, Second Floor, South Zone Link Bridge.

This event will include a colouring contest for children, a choral speaking performance by students from Saint Xavier’s Institution, and a lucky draw for quiz on composting.
