I'm sure you know of the sad situation in Johor where thousands of families are displaced because of the flood situation. One of the 4x4 groups we hang out with a.k.a the Buayas have organised their own flood relief. A team was sent down last weekend to recce the place namely Sri Medan, a small town near Yong Peng as advised by the Malaysian Red Crescent Society. As of yesterday, the village is still under almost 3 feet of water and the people have been evacuated to relief centres.
We'll be going down again this coming Saturday (27th January, 2007) to deliver items collected. If you wish to donate items, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements for collection and etc. The items needed are:
- Toiletries i.e. toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, shampoo and etc
- Clothes and undergarments (preferably new)
- Milk and diapers for the kids
- Rice and cooking oil
