SHAH ALAM - The Baitul Ridha project in Al-Bab, Syria, aimed at providing housing for families affected by the earthquake tragedy in February, last year, is expected to be ready for occupancy by early May.

Sinar Karangkraf Group Head of Marketing and Branding Nik Justin Nik Mohd Ariffin said the current process of selecting and identifying eligible families was underway.

He said families most affected by the earthquake, especially the elderly and young children, will be given priority.

"The project, a collaboration between Sinar Karangkraf and Syria Care is expected to be fully completed by the end of April and ready for occupancy in early May 2024.

"We will prioritise those still living in tents.

"This housing includes a complete area with various facilities such as electricity, water and a multipurpose hall," he said.

On Feb 8, last year, Sinar Karangkraf started raising funds aimed at helping the earthquake victims in Turkey-Syria, with a target of raising RM250,000.

Nik Justin added that there were plans to increase the number of homes to assist those in need there.

"I pray that this project will proceed smoothly and be completed within the specified time frame," he said.
