MRC Penang Branch Flood Relief Fund
The 10th Penang Golden New Year’s Eve Countdown
This year marks the 10th edition of the event organized by CreatiVision. The inaugural event was held after the 2004 Tsunami. The current flood situation in Malaysia, particularly in the state of Kelantan where the rate and scale of the flooding have taken even the most seasoned of Kelantanese by surprise has stirred CreatiVision into action. The event will be a platform to encourage goodwill and charity among Malaysians acting in harmony for the benefit of Malaysians in need. Appeals for donations towards MRC’s Flood Relief Fund will be made during the event and MRC will also have a collection booth to receive sponsored items.
We at MRC Penang Branch are pleased to collaborate with CreatiVision again, on this meaningful project to raise funds through the event. MRC has always been at the forefront in providing assistance for disaster relief within Malaysia and internationally. Recent operations include Typhoon Haiyan where MRC were among the first to send aid, flying supplies to Tacloban, Philippines and as reported in the press, the ongoing operations in Kelantan and other states. Members of MRC Penang Branch, have been activated and are on standby, with a team tasked to be deployed on Monday to assist in rescue operations in Kelantan.
MRC Penang Branch, based on current requirements, accepts all forms of cash donations or sponsorship of foodstuff such as canned food, milk, milo, rice etc. However, the preferred form is cash donation so that supplies can be obtained as required from sources closer to affected areas. The current situation has rendered long distance transportation and delivery logistically challenging for the time being.
Donations can also be via cheque, made out in favour of MRCS Penang Branch or via deposit to account at Public Bank # 3087736505. If you have further enquiries, Please call MRC Penang Branch at 04-8275678.
