Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob on Friday (April 17) said the government requirement for NGOs that help the people during the movement control order (MCO) period to register with the Welfare Department (JKM) is in the interest of the safety of all parties involved.

He added it was also to facilitate the Health Ministry to do contact tracing if there is Covid-19 infection among contributors of aid and/or recipients.
