It’s two days to Christmas and a lot of us are already enjoying our holidays.

But down South there are many families who do not have this luxury — stranded and isolated, involuntarily cut off from aid centres, their food and medical supplies are running low, and for some of the more unfortunate, non-existent.

As the waters begin to recede and a massive relief operation goes into full swing, Johor Women, Family and Community Development Committee chairman Dr Robia Kosai issued an SOS “to all quarters to contribute food, clothing, blankets and mats“. (story link)

If you are able, please contribute to the relief effort by donating dry or canned food, CLEAN clothes, blankets and mats to aid the flood victims. You can send your donated goods to the following collection centres:

  • Puteri Umno headquarters at Putra World Trade Centre
  • Kontena Nasional premises in Seri Setia, Petaling Jaya (full address: Batu 9, Jalan Klang Lama, P.O.B. 6503 Seri Setia, 47307 Petaling Jaya, Selangor Darul Ehsan)
  • Multipurpose hall at Parliament House

If you would like to give monetary donations, please read the following:
