Updates & Resources
Here in our news section, you’ll find stories and the latest updates about how our work is helping to improve society. The attention these articles draw is one of the best resources we have for recruiting the public to our cause. Take a look at our featured pieces below and let us know what you think about our efforts.
Covid-19 in Sabah
The Movement Control Order (MCO) has "contained" the disease (preventing mass deaths), but we haven't yet (and may never) have the ability to eliminate all cases. So what to do? If we just stop any MCO we go back to epidemic.
Our only options are to improve testing and move to a highly targeted approach (i.e. only in places with active cases) to the MCO while people take more responsibility for building their health and immune systems, and together we start learning, slowly and carefully, to live with COVID-19, like we do with other diseases.
FS is Resilient
With the Movement Control Order implemented in Malaysia during the Covid-19 outbreak, each of us has an ethical obligation to decrease public gatherings, practice social distancing, and substitute our activities with safer alternatives to slow down the spread of the virus and flatten the curve.
As we do what we can to stem the tide of infection, it is also important to remain connected to each other while we live apart.
At FS, we have started to work remotely from our homes and introduced teleconferencing workshops, training and meetings for our team. We may be in partial lockdown but we find liberty in creative ways of sharing and learning from one another.
Keeping our communities connected
Being closely connected to the communities that we work with, FS has been assisting families in rural areas during this period.
A Bit About Us
Forever Sabah, a civil society entity, serves as a collaborative social movement rather than a bureaucracy or NGO. We are an initiative rooted in local aspirations, built by an enthusiastic team who believe we can make our state better by utilizing Sabahan knowledge and experience and working with others and across sectors.
Rather than deciding what Sabah “should” do, we build our programs through engaging communities, government agencies, private sector and NGOs in the resolution of problems and taking of opportunities that Sabahans are identifying. As we work with these issues, and find funding for them locally or internationally, they become projects and programs, facilitated by Forever Sabah, but led by the people involved, and over time grow into independent entities.
