PAHANG, Terengganu and Kelantan have been badly hit by floods as heavy rains continue unabated in the east coast of Malaysia.
With deep concern for the welfare of those devastated by the floods, the Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur has galvanised into action and put together a collection of items to send to the flood victims.
They included two lorry-loads of bedsheets, towels and duvet covers, bathrobes, soaps, toothbrushes, 200 pairs of school shoes, school bags, books, toys, used clothing, shampoo and hair conditioner.
Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur general manager Manfred Weber handed these items over to K. Balasupramaniam, founder and chairman of the Malaysian Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association (MVFRA).
Hotel staff also helped in loading boxes of the items onto the MVFRA truck.
The truck will make its way to Pahang and Terengganu to deliver these items directly to flood victims in designated shelters.
