CRSM and Malaysia Furniture Council help flood victims’ rebuild


In order to provide relief, GoCare has organised the Flood Relief Home Rebuilding Campaign, and the Malaysia Furniture Council (MFC) responded by donating furniture worth RM252,300.00 to flood victims in Selangor. The Crisis Relief Squad of MCA (CRSM) will distribute the furniture, as well as essential goods and electrical appliances, to affected households to help them rebuild.

The handover of the furniture by MFC Chairperson Khoo Yeow Chong to CRSM Selangor was witnessed by MCA Secretary-General Datuk Chong Sin Woon. In addition to dining tables, chairs, wardrobes, sofa and cupboards, CRSM also distributed kettles, gas stoves, fans, water filters, dry food and hygiene products. 50 families have come to collect them thus far.

Datuk Chong said that the floods caused by the Northeast Monsoon last December had inflicted major damage to the affected areas. A large number of furniture and electrical appliances were submerged; economic activities were disrupted and an estimated RM4 billion to RM8 billion evaporated from our economy.

He added, knowing that many furniture and appliances were flood-damaged following the floods in December, CRSM jumped into action without delay to crowdsource funds and furniture through GoCare to help the victims rebuild. He thanks all the kind-hearted people and enterprises who have helped raise, so far, RM170,000 in donations and over RM1 million.

Khoo noted that the MFC had started to raise money and furniture when the floods hit our country last December, and has now collected RM1.214 million for furniture.

The MFC Chairman also said through collaboration and coordination from CRSM, the furniture was successfully delivered to Jelebu in Negeri Sembilan; Bentong and Temerloh in Pahang; Melaka; Segamat and Paloh in Johor.

Selangor CRSM chief Chng Soo Chau pointed out that he believes kind deeds are like sunshine; they bring warmth to our community; and today, through GoCare’s post-flood rebuilding plan, he hopes to crowdfund enough resources to help 1,000 families.

CRSM GoCare would also like to thank Norwex, a cleaning tools company for having sponsored 5,000 sets of cleaning tools for the victims too.

Ching also encourages more members of the public to also donate mattresses, pillows, sheets, gas stoves, rice cookers, kettles, refrigerators, small appliances, etc. to help them rebuild before the Lunar New Year festivities.
