Residents of Rumah Seri Kenangan Mile 12 will be relocated to other welfare homes soon as the existing building will be demolished in August  this year.

The plot of the existing house will be rebuilt with a new facility, which is said to take up to two years to complete.

Rumah Seri Kenangan Sibu, Samarahan Rehabilitation Centre, and Rumah Seri Kenangan Cheras in Kuala Lumpur are among similar centres involved.

The cost of the rebuilding is around RM12 million, and it is slotted under the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

Rumah Kenangan is a house set up to care for the elderly.
