A FAMILY of seven whose house burned down in Sg Teraban last weekend received assistance from the Belait District Office's Welfare Fund yesterday to help with daily necessities.

The family's mother Siti Mariam Mohammad received the donations yesterday from the Village Head of Mumong Yang Berhormat Hj Mohd Yussof Hj Dulamin.

“The donation will help cover our necessities as we have completely lost everything, except a box of documents, in the fire,” said Siti Mariam.

The mother of five said that her family has no plans to rebuild their home, which was over 50 years old, due to financial constraints.

“My husband and I have a lot of sentimental value for the place as we were first married here, and raised all our five children at this home,” she said.
