Hoy for squatter residents
About the project
BATU CAVES: In 2018, Shaharom Bee Babjan, who was a resident at the Seri Temenggung squatter village with 29 others since 1984, was allocated a three-bedroom apartment of 84sqm in Batu Caves, for which she only paid RM65,000.
Each unit at Projek Pangsapuri Selangorku @ Seri Temenggung originally cost RM165,000, but the Selangor government subsidised the balance.
The subsidy was a huge relief for the 61-year-old and her family of six. Unfortunately, their joy turned to despair when they could not get a bank loan.
The developer had given her until December last year to arrange a loan to keep the unit.
She is currently living with her son, daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren in a rented shophouse. Her son was involved in a road accident about six months ago and suffered serious injuries. He requires regular hospital visits and is unable to work and earn an income.
