Many people dream of the beauty of white, soft and fluffy snow, but yet there are those who are suffering from the cold harsh winter.
According to the Global Peace Index (GPI), Malaysia is ranked the 16th most peaceful country in the world which has been increased compared to the position 26th in 2018.
Praise upon Allah for all the peaceful and harmonious life that we enjoy for all this time. Like any other country, we are also facing various natural disasters such as floods, landslides, fire, and haze. Even though it happens on a small scale, it also can cause great damage to the environment, properties, human safety, and health.
The opening of the year 2021 has brought a bit of sadness to some Malaysian especially people who live in Pahang, Terengganu, Johor, Perak, and Selangor. They were tested by heavy floods which affected more than 5 thousand families equal to more than 21 thousand individuals as of 5th January 2021.
Department of Social Welfare (JKM) has been established 256 evacuation centres in 26 districts to help those affected.
Flood victims across Pahang were the highest numbers compared to the other five states involved.
Fire and Rescue Department of Malaysia (JBPM) has identified some areas which expect to be flooded again until March based on history and frequency during the monsoon season or northeast monsoon.
To help those affected, Islamic Relief Malaysia has launched a Local Emergency Relief campaign aimed to raise RM200,000. The assistance benefitted to ease their burden, especially for the post-flood phase.
Islamic Relief Malaysia will collaborate with existing partners from government agencies such as the National Security Council (MKN), National Disaster Management Agency (NADMA), JKM, and other related agencies to help them.
Islamic Relief Malaysia hopes that all Malaysian will participate and support this initiative to ensure those affected will get immediate aids according to their needs.
