SEPANG: Decked smartly in blue and white, volunteers of the Tsu Chi Buddhist organisation can always be seen to lend a helping hand at time of distress.

Whether it's at the hospital, relief centres or the airport, these volunteers are ever ready to aid either victim or their loved ones.

Early Monday morning, they can be seen at the KLIA international arrival hall waiting for the families of the passengers of the missing MH370 who are arriving from China.

Volunteer Matthew Lim, 43, was seen briefing a team of 50 volunteers who were lined up.

The organisation signed an MoU with MAS to aid during any distress situations.

The volunteers are full time and part time.

Some take off work just to be here.

Matthew, a chartered accountant by profession said they are waiting to be briefed by MAS on the details of those arriving.

"We are here to lend a shoulder to cry on in addition to providing food and other necessities for the families, he said.

He added that the organisation aims to serve as a moral support system for those in need.

"We want to help people and give comfort," said Matthew who was leading the team.
