Quarantine Donations

Quarantine Donations

In the midst of the community quarantine, His Royal Majesty Ampun Sultan Hadji Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram, The 35th Sultan of Sulu and North Borneo, was extremely worried for his people.

Those working in the informal sector are the most affected during this pandemic as they do not have access to government support for their basic needs.

Despite the threat of the virus, limited open markets and insufficient resources, he was able to produce several dozen food bags containing a few kilos of rice, some canned goods and other essentials.

Together with Her Royal Majesty Dayang Pangian Mellany Kiram, they drove around under the burning summer heat with their face masks and alcohol, to donate these much needed food bags to the poorest of the poor in Jolo, Sulu. Among those given were street sweepers, garbage collectors and homeless elderly.

We thank the kindhearted members of the Royal Order of the Pearl and other friends of Sulu for their invaluable support to help the people of Sulu.

Their Royal Majesties will continue helping their people when the community quarantine is lifted.
