THE Johor Darul Ta’zim Foundation (YJDT) is calling on the public, especially the youth, to help keep the state clean.

Its chairman Datuk Mohd Noorazam Osman said this should be everyone’s responsibility, not just that of non-governmental organisations or corporations.

“We should love the environment and look after people’s welfare, ” he said when contacted.

Mohd Noorazam revealed that 37 volunteers participated in a beach clean-up activity conducted by YDJT in Pulau Tinggi, Mersing together with the Welfare Department (JKM).

“The volunteers were from the YJDT-Hero programme, who also helped sort and distribute food aid to villagers in Pulau Tinggi.

“They also conducted clean-ups at the beach, surau, mosque as well as multi-purpose hall, and repainted the shed near the jetty, ” he said.

Mohd Noorazam noted that YJDT has always played an active role in helping the needy.

“When people hear the name Johor Darul Ta’zim Foundation, we do not want them to only think of football, ” said Mohd Noorazam.

“Last year, we donated food to the Orang Asli in Kahang aside from post-flood relief efforts in affected villages across the state, ” he said.

To date, some 2,000 people have registered as members of the foundation, with more than half of this number coming from other states.

JKM Johor chief assistant director Norhafizah Ahmad said 22 houses were given food aid during the programme as part of the Perlindungan Ekonomi dan Rakyat Malaysia or Permai programme.

“Johor received 50,857 food baskets worth about RM100 each that contained rice, cooking oil, sugar, canned food and other necessities, ” she said. — By REMAR NORDIN
