Missing MH370: More Mandarin-speaking volunteers needed

PETALING JAYA: The MCA is looking for more Mandarin-speaking volunteers to help as translators for the 130 families of China nationals who were passengers on Flight MH370.

Its vice-president Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun said the party’s Crisis Relief Squad (CRSM) had received overwhelming response and 80 volunteers had been recruited so far.

She said more volunteers were needed to help the families with translation and counselling.

“The volunteers should be multilingual in Mandarin, English and Malay.

“They have to be ready to provide crisis relief, thus they must have their passports ready to depart with MAS whenever the need arises,” she said in a statement yesterday.

“Volunteers aged below 21 years must first obtain consent from their parents or guardian,” she said.
