Continued heavy rainfall last month has resulted in detrimental effect of flood in many states nationwide. In aid of the flood victims, Da Ma Cai organised its Staff-in-the-Community Programme: Flood Relief Initiative for two charitable organisations located in Klang, which is one of the worst flood-affected district in the Selangor state.
Eve, the Administrator of Persatuan Rumah Kebajikan Rita (Rita Home) located at Kapar, thanked Da Ma Cai for the prompt assistance, “Our mattresses were badly damaged during the massive flood. We are thankful we have enough mattresses for our old folks now. Some of our elderly are bed-ridden, therefore the hospital grade waterproof mattress is really a great help during this challenging time.”
Children from Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-kanak Selangor (PKKKS) at Klang Utama received school uniforms and stationeries together with food vouchers. “Most of our items were damaged in the flood. Due to this unprecedented crisis, our founder, Madam Usha suffered a stroke and passed on,” said devastated Rinna, who took over the role from her mother-in-law, Madam Usha in managing the orphanage.
“Many charitable organisations struggled to get necessities while having to deal with this unprecedented aftermath. Good Samaritans offered support in the form of shelters, food, clothing and cash aid. With the spirit to serve the community in times of need, we hope to be part of the collective strength to help the victims to overcome these difficulties, and return to normalcy as soon as possible.” said Da Ma Cai spokesperson.
