When it counts most, Malaysians come together. But now, what?

The PJ Gudwara were among the first to mobilise relief effors and with the help of thousands of Malaysians of all religions and races, prepared hot meal for flood victims as well as distributed dry goods. - GLENN GUAN/The Star

In the past two weeks, there have been many heroic stories shared online: Abang Viva, a young man who drove up to Selangor from Melaka with a boat strapped on top of his Perodua Viva to help evacuate victims; convoys of drivers from the North of the peninsula who drove south, with boats or rafts, to repay the kindness of Malaysians who helped when Kedah was flooded earlier this year as well as countless other Malaysians who’ve braved the floods to help.

In the midst of this devastating crisis, the Malaysian spirit of “kita jaga kita”, once again, emerged in full force with Malaysians coming out in droves to help each other.
