UNITED SIKHS GHANAIA Malaysian Flood Relief

With nearly 100,000 people displaced, 9 deaths and these numbers continually rising, Malaysia is in need of emergency disaster relief following the worst floods the region has witnessed in 37 years. Malaysian weathermen warned the floods, which hit the southern states, could spread to the central and northeastern parts of the country if the unusually heavy monsoon rains persisted

The floods were the result of unusually heavy seasonal rain, and the state of Johor, in the South of Peninsular Malaysia, has been particularly badly affected. The displaced have been housed in 296 centres and emergency supplies and disaster relief teams have been working to help those affected.

UNITED SIKHS has responded by sending its response team to the region, locating its base camp at the Sikh Gurdwara in Muar. The team is working with Mercy Malaysia, a relief organisation which was at the centre of Tsunami relief work in Aceh two years ago. The team will continue to assess the situation and provide emergency supplies and disaster relief as needed.

Continuous updates will be issued by UNITED SIKHS. To receive forthcoming bulletins join our UNITED SIKHS Yahoo group
