In Malaysia, this past weekend, severe flooding killed eight people and displaced 41,000 in what Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob called, “… rainfall that happens only once in a 100 years.” The Prime Minister announced $23 million in aid for post-flood recovery efforts, and ADFIAP members acted quickly to assist all those affected by the disaster. Volunteers from Perbadanan Usahawan Nasional Berhad (PUNB) have reached out to flood-affected households, particularly those in need of home cleaning in nearby areas. PUNB believes that by offering this, the workforce’s spirit would be reignited and challenged to revive their life.
SME Bank Malaysia, in conjunction with Islamic Relief Malaysia (IRM), contributed RM20,000 to a relief project fund for flood victims in Klang, Selangor, and provided necessary commodities to impacted households in Hulu Langat, Selangor, under the Ministry of Entrepreneur and Cooperative Development. Johor Corporation (JCorp) and its network of companies, under Yayasan Johor Corporation (YJC), are collaborating to help over 1,000 impacted employees reconstruct their lives. Aside from the RM500,000 financial support, Waqaf An-Nur, through Brigade Waqaf, has also deployed a mission of 60 trained volunteers to clean the homes of impacted employees. The mission kicked off in Klang and Puchong and this relief effort, which began on Tuesday, December 21st, is presently being maintained by JCorp workers with money contributions, food, supplies, and electrical equipment.
Bank Pembangunan Malaysia Berhad handed care packages to flood-affected families who are presently seeking refuge at the neighboring Kelab Sultan Sulaiman in Kampung Baru, one of the worst-affected regions in the Klang Valley.
