“I believe this would augur well for the strength of BN as a whole even though Mambong is not represented by SPDP.

"If you do not take care of yourself properly, then it can mean doom. Doom here means not about being sent to jail or lose your job, but you may lose your friends,” said Mawan at the Dinner and Dance reception held in conjunction with Resdemop's third anniversary at a restaurant in Kuching on 6 November 2012.

“Kita berharap untuk mengumpul dana yang mencukupi untuk disalurkan kepada pihak dan individu yang dalam kesusahan,” kata Kapten Zainuddin yang juga penyelaras SPDP Bahagian Mambong.

Selain melakukan kerja kebajikan, Respdemop turut menganjurkan aktiviti sukan dan rekreasi untuk merapatkan hubungan dan kerjasama sesama ahlinya dan anggota keluarga mereka.
