Mereka mengadu masalah mereka dengan PAS Miri agar pihak berwajib dan pihak berkenaan mengambil tindakan segera. Antara masalah yang perlu diatasi dengan segera adalah: 

(1) Kerana menantunya (Ong Ching Chai) disahkan oleh doktor dengan barah tahap 4 dan dia terpaksa berhenti bekerja. Kesannya, mereka tidak mampu membayar sewa (RM550) sebulan.

(2) Mereka terpaksa berpindah ke rumah abang angkat Lina Anyie di kawasan setinggan Piasau Utara, Miri, Sarawak. Rumah ini telah lama tidak didiami dan usang.

(3) Keadaan rumah itu sangat usang dan tidak ada bekalan elektrik. Sementara itu mereka berkongsi paip air dengan jiran mereka di sebelah.

(4) Kos pengangkutan Lina Anyie (pesakit buah pinggang di Pusat Dialisis Bulan Sabit Merah Miri (MRCDC) berulang-alik dari rumah ke MRCDC (3 kali seminggu atau 12 @ 13 kali sebulan) dengan kos RM300 sebulan. 

(5) Kos setiap rawatan kemoterapi Encik Ong Ching Chai di Hospital Kuching, Sarawak. Lebih kurang RM600 – RM700 (tambang tiket bas dan perbelanjaan makanan dan minuman selama 2 minggu). Puan Penny akan menemani suaminya setiap kali menjalani kemoterapi di Hospital Kuching.

Ini adalah keluhan mereka kepada PAS Miri, keadaan rumah yang usang perlu segera diperbaiki dan mereka juga telah memohon tanah dari jabatan tanah dan ukur dan juga dari Temenggong Ketua masyarakat kaum Kayan bahagian Miri untuk skim PPRT apabila ada pemberian tanah. Begitu juga, kos pengangkutan rawatan mereka sangat diperlukan untuk meringankan beban mereka.

Kami menggesa pihak berkuasa dan pihak-pihak yang berkenaan untuk segera membantu menyelesaikan masalah ini tanpa mengira bangsa dan agama. Kerjasama dengan pihak yang terlibat amat dihargai.

(1) Because his son-in-law (Ong Ching Chai) was diagnosed by a doctor with a stage four cancer, and he had to quit his job. As a result, they cannot afford to pay to rent (RM550) a month. 

(2) They had to move to Lina Anyie’s adopted brother’s house in the northern Piasau squatter area, Miri, Sarawak. This house has long been uninhabited and dilapidated.

(3) The condition of the house is very dilapidated and there is no electricity supply. Meanwhile, they share a water pipe with their neighbor next door.

This is their complaint to PAS Miri, the condition of dilapidated houses needs to be repaired immediately and they have also applied for land from the land and survey department and also from Temenggong Chief of Kayan Miri division of PPRT scheme efforts when there is a land grant. Similarly, the cost of transporting their treatment is very necessary to lighten their load.

We urge the authorities and the relevant parties to immediately help solve this problem regardless of race and religion. Cooperation with the parties involved is greatly appreciated.
