BANGI: MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai has thanked the party’s crisis relief squad, or CRSM, for assisting the families of Chinese passengers on board Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 who were waiting for news of their missing relatives.
“We appreciate their commitment as they have been working very hard for the past week.
“I’d like to thank them for their efforts and hope that they can continue to give strength to the families during this difficult time,” he said yesterday.
Liow said that some 50 volunteers from CRSM were involved in the volunteer work at the hotel where the Chinese nationals were staying while awaiting word on the search for the plane.
He did not want to say much as the most important thing right now was to search for the plane.
“We are here today to give the families motivation and words of comfort. I understand that this is a difficult time they have to go through so I do not want to say much,” Liow told reporters after visiting the families at Bangi-Putrajaya Hotel here.
In a related development, the MCA will host a mass prayer session for the crew and passengers of Flight MH370 tomorrow.
The prayer session, which will start at 10am, will be held at Dewan San Choon, Wisma MCA in Kuala Lumpur.
The MCA publicity bureau will organise a live streaming of the event at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/mca-tv1 for party members and the public to watch online.
