FT minister: Job placement programmes for KL's homeless

Modified 8 May 2020, 4:26 am

Federal Territories Minister Annuar Musa said that more than 750 homeless people have been taken in by shelters since March 24, soon after the start of the movement control order.

He added that the problem in Kuala Lumpur is more substantial than what was initially thought and the government is instituting work training programmes in order to ensure that the homeless do not return to their previous conditions once the MCO is lifted.
