The Salvation Army also has an Emergency Relief Aid programme to help people in times of emergency and disaster.
Our most recent operation was focused in Mentakab, Temerloh and Kuala Krau in Pahang. The Salvation Army was the first on scene to offer help to these affected areas. Our relief programme was headed by Major Tan Guat Hai, KL Team Leader with the help of Stanley Yeong. For the past few weeks, donations were collected and The Salvation Army managed to gather enough to distribute food parcels to approximately 1,107 families.
Each food parcel contained rice, noodles, biscuits, canned foods, oil, vegetables, eggs, potatoes, onions, salt and sugar.
The Salvation Army would like to thank the public and all the volunteers who travelled to help in the cause for your continous and kind support of our work. Because you care, we can be there.
As the water levels have now resided, the needs of the victims are towards cleaning their homes from the damage, debris and mud caused by the floods. There is no longer an emergency and our mission has been accomplished.
May you be blessed by the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
