Over 1,000 Flood Victims Around Sepang Received Aids
“Hundreds of our employees have had their lives devastated by this recent calamity. Our first priority right now is to make sure they are well taken care. I am also very proud to see non-affected employees augmenting the efforts made by the Group. Our volunteer group has grown bigger, to about 300 people from the previous 30.
Other employees are also making personal contribution and donation to help with relief efforts. Members of the public have been equally generous, contributing to funds and providing meals to the airport volunteers,” said Malaysia Airports Managing Director, Dato’ Iskandar Mizal Mahmood during one of his visits to MATC to reassure the affected flood victims of Malaysia Airports’ commitment in assisting them during this difficult period.
He added that the mental health of those affected is also important as it is not easy for the victims to remain upbeat amidst their recent losses. “Bearing this in mind, we organised daily exercise sessions and activities for children to help keep their mind focused on positives and keep their children occupied. It is trying times for everyone, and we will be there to give our fullest support,” he said.
Malaysia Airports had also worked with several companies and non-governmental organisations who have generously helped in providing hot meals for the volunteers and victims under the #MYAirportCARES initiative namely; Masjid Tengku Ampuan Jamaah, Bukit Jelutong; Jentayu Enstek; Ummi Fi Sabilillah; Yayasan Amal Malaysia; Petronas KLIA; Nasi Kandar Line Clear, Kampung Baru and Rockets Pizza.
To date, as the water has subsided Malaysia Airports is still organising its mission to help the flood victims with cleaning assistance as well as providing other aids such as clothes and food to help ease their burden.
