In Seremban, 11 areas were hit by flash floods, affecting 450 residents whose houses were inundated by floodwaters following heavy rain on Tuesday night.
Several places in Hulu Langat and Seremban were hit by flash floods following heavy rain, affecting hundreds of residents and an animal shelter on the 4th of November. Up to 3m of water started to rise in the wee hours. Other affected areas were Kampung Sri Nading and Taman Sri Nanding.
The floods happened just as residents were getting ready to leave their houses for work
The 87 flood victims from 18 families from Kampung Sega Hilir and Kampung Pasir were evacuated to a temporary relief centre at SK Sega Hilir.
An animal shelter in Mambau, which was flooded, saw 54 out of the 1,800 canines drowned.
What's Happening?A flood can take away so much from their victims. People in affected areas typically lose everything. Homes, farms and gardens, crops, food, supplies and most personal belongings are all lost. It's a major setback that puts the very livelihoods at stake. Things are very difficult on their own. We need your help during this intense struggle.
With your help, they will have a much better chance at surviving this ordeal. Please lend them a hand, so they can be resilient, live through this, and eventually get back on their feet.
Individually, we each can only do so much. But collectively, we can certainly make a huge difference, even the difference between life and death in many cases.
What We Need & What You Get
We have a "zero overhead" promise. Except for the transaction fees charged by gogetfunding, Paypal and Credit Card services, we are not touching any amount of the money collected. All the costs associated with the perks (except shipping fees) such as free translations.
Given the widespread severity of the situation, we are hoping to raise RM24,000 or more.
This campaign itself will be running for 18 days. We hope that the emergency rescue phase would be over by then, but equally serious problems would still persist, including access to clean potable water, and treatment/control of post-flood diseases such as cholera.
Therefore, most of the funds received would be going towards rehabilitation, which is always a big part of work in the aftermath of such unexpected disasters. Thus, all funding received will go for after-disaster aids such as source of clean water, medicine and other necessities that flood victims require.
We are just acting as medium to raise funds so those without direct contact with local organizations there can still give.
