SHAH ALAM – Angkatan Belia Malaysia Malaysia (ABIM) launched ‘Sanggar Bakti’ as a center for operation and management of disaster and flood aid donations in 16 locations across the country.
Its president, Muhammad Faisal Abdul Aziz said, the initiative to help flood victims initiated by ABIM had the cooperation of Global Peace Mission (GPM) Malaysia and ADAB Youth Garage (AYG).
He said that the Sanggar Bakti movement that has been started since Tuesday is not just about giving proper help to the public, but it is also a place where people give aid to be handed over to the flood victims.
“Sanggar Bakti starts operating from 10 am to 5 pm. A total of 16 Sanggar Bakti are open throughout Malaysia. People can donate to Sanggar Bakti nearby.
“A total of 570 volunteers are registered to help with operations and disaster management. A total of 21 four-wheel drive vehicles, three lorries, five vans and 23 waterjets are available to carry out flood disaster relief operations this time,” he said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Perikatan Nasional (PN) candidate for the Wangsa Maju Parliament, Senator Nuridah Mohd Salleh said in a statement that welfare efforts to help the afflicted should be done together with various parties.
The head of Muslimat Pas Malaysia said, Islam calls its people to race to do good, especially to help the less fortunate.
Meanwhile, Putra Supreme Council Member Datuk Kamarul Airi Arifin said that post-flood mission preparations are important to take into account because they involve the mental health of flood victims who will be disturbed due to property damage and lack of money.
Therefore, he said, he will try to find a solution on how to help the affected residents and work with ABIM to run a flood relief program.
“Flood aid must be done together, besides trying to find the best idea holistically to the grassroots. Don’t think about politics,” he said.
In the meantime, the Chief Executive of GPM, Ahmad Fahmi Mohd Samsudin said, the work of ABIM-GPM-AYG is more organized this time to deal with floods through the initiative of organizing a Disaster Preparedness camp.
According to him, the implementation has been organized in several areas and states through the state ABIM and other collaboration partners.
“At the GPM level, the task force will be ready 24 hours a day to go to the field. The GPM has gone to deliver donations in Segamat, Meru, Klang and Negeri Sembilan.
“The flood relief mission is the main commitment. Floods do not recognize political parties. Everyone will be a victim of the flood, so all parties must help and it is the role of civil society,” he explained.
