KUALA LUMPUR: Every year between the months of October and February, monsoon rains affect Peninsular Malaysia, especially in the East Coast. During these months, the weather is usually quite bad, causing floods and rough seas. This year, thousands of people in many towns and villages in the states of Pahang, Terengganu and Johor have been affected by floods.

With the collaboration of the Archdiocesan Office for Human Development, (AOHD), Archdiocesan Orang Asli Apostolate (AOAA), and Parish Integral Human Development Ministries (PIHDM) of St Joseph’s Church, Sentul and a few parishes in the Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur, are working together to assist these flood victims.

St Joseph’s Church will be the Operations Centre for collection and distribution of items to the flood victims.

St Joseph’s PIHDM and parishioners will work together to collect and pack goods and other necessary items sent from other parishes for the flood victims before transporting them to the affected areas. At the moment, they will concentrate on Pahang – in particular a few kampungs in Sg Lembing, Muadzam Shah, Rompin, Pekan and Mentakab.

They are collecting items such as dried packaged and canned foods, mineral water, clean clothes, masks, sanitisers, medical aid, other basic necessities and monetary donations.
