Muslim Pro has partnered with a Malaysian non-governmental organisation (NGO) Pertubuhan Kebajikan Sedulur (SEDULUR) to donate food and essential supplies to 410 affected homes in the Klang, Shah Alam, Hulu Langat, and Banting areas in the state of Selangor, Malaysia.
As part of its support for flood relief efforts, Muslim Pro donated USD $10,000 (RM 42,265) to flood-hit households at Orang Asli Mah Meri at Kampung Orang Asli Sungai Bumbun in Kuala Langat; residents in Sungai Lui, Batu 18 Hulu Langat, residents at Kampung Bukit Lanchong, Klang; and residents at Section 23 and Jalan Impian, Shah Alam.
“Muslim Pro is deeply saddened by the recent floods and is committed to playing our part to help individuals and families impacted, including those who have lost their homes in this tragedy. We hope that by joining community efforts to help flood victims, we can play a small part in helping families recover and rebuild,” said Nik Emir Din, Muslim Pro’s chief financial officer and country manager for Malaysia.
As part of Muslim Pro and SEDULUR’s relief efforts, families will be provided with food and essential supplies consisting of pantry essentials, personal hygiene products, and medicines. Key household items, such as mattresses, pillows, blankets, stoves and cleaning supplies will also be provided to affected families.
SEDULUR, in collaboration with other NGOs, have mobilised over 100 volunteers to assist affected communities in their cleaning efforts.
“We are overwhelmed with the outpouring of support we have received from organisations such as Muslim Pro and members of public. This genuinely shows the ‘Keluarga Malaysia’ (Malaysian Family) spirit, and how we are coming together despite our differences to help each other in times of need,” said Abdul Rahman Nikman, SEDULUR’s chairman.
“During times of crisis, such as this, let us be thankful and reflect upon what we have and pray for the safety and recovery of all the flood victims,” he added.
SEDULUR has distributed 410 food and essential packs to households, and will be rolling out the distribution of cleaning supplies and household essentials in stages. Volunteers will be mobilised to help with neighbourhood cleanups for the communities throughout the flood disaster.
This is the second time Muslim Pro is partnering with SEDULUR. The first collaboration came in July this year to provide food aid to B40 communities directly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
