Team Selangor to distribute cooking stove, healthcare kit to 450 flood-hit families

By Zareef Muzammil

SHAH ALAM, Jan 17 — Team Selangor volunteers will begin distributing aid to another 450 flood-affected families this week, said its chief secretariat Syahaizel Keman.

He said the distribution of rice, food baskets, cooking stoves, personal care and health kits, washing soap and prayer mats are to ease the burden borne by the victims of last month’s disaster.

According to him, they have identified the locations for the distribution in Batu Tiga, Sungai Pelek, Seri Serdang, Dengkil, Kota Kemuning and Ijok.

“We still have the items in our stock to be distributed to those in need. Our officers have made dealings with community service centres and village heads for the delivery process.

“The distribution of this aid is made according to the needs so not all places will get the same items,” he told Selangorkini.

Since the floods hit the state last year, Team Selangor has provided aid to more than 3,000 houses affected by the floods involving 71 locations with the participation of more than 1,200 volunteers.

The volunteers carried out various activities including cleaning homes, distributing beverages, as well as packaging and delivering food baskets.

Individuals interested in joining Team Selangor as a volunteer can register at bit.ly/SkuadBencanaTeamSelangor, and any enquiries can be made by contacting 013-530 3578.

On December 18 last year, the state government mobilised volunteer groups including Team Selangor to aid in the process of relocating flood victims to temporary relief centres.

Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said at the time that volunteer teams also distributed early aid to victims.
