Kuantan Flood Relief 2013

With heavy rain and flood in the East Coast, many areas are affected and they need a lot of help in terms of basic necessities. We did a collection for them and work with the team from We Love, We Care, We Share in this project. Knowing Malaysians, we are never short of being kind to lend a helping hand - a total of RM6370 was collected to fund for this project! Thank you to all donors and supporters who have contributed to the project. Credits to Stop Hunger Now, Reach Out Malaysia and individual donors who have generously contributed time and effort.

We took about 2 weeks to get everything in place - from donations to logistics. Many thanks to all the anonymous supporters who work behind to ensure all things fall into place on D-Day! We pick up the items on Thursday 19th Dec 2013 in preparation for delivery on the Friday, 20th Dec 2013.

Thanks to Rosnah who have provide the much needed assistance for us to just show face, pay and pick up. All done within 45 minutes! TQ NSK Selayang for speeding things up for us as well! We pick up the items a day before and send to warehouse

Thanks to Antonio for arranging the warehouse for the usage of this project, as without it, I am not sure where are we going to store all the stuff! Life saver!
Loading the items into the lorry.. no easy task!

Not playing Lego here.. its real hard work arranging and rearranging!
This go in last.. first.. no, last.. arghh!!!

And there is more to go...
 Once loaded, we proceed to Ivan's place to load the other half. Departed KL at 11am, had lunch and repair a punctured tyre in Karak.. reach Kuantan at 5pm.

Finally, the lorry arrived at 5pm.....

And how we turn a beautiful house to a warehouse....
So much items and we ran out of place in the house!

10 x Cooking Oil @ RM6.25 = RM62.50
20 x Cooking Oil @ RM6.25 = RM125.00
Transport = RM600

3. Total Expenses = RM4017.36

As at now, the weather condition is still not stable and East Coast may faced a second wave of flood. The balance will be used for it if require, else will be used for other 1M1c activities.

For Spritzer mineral water, the payment will be made in KL, and Reza will pick it up from the distributor's warehouse in Kuantan. Thanks to Jenny for arranging this. We are getting 100 cartons + 100 cartons (free) of Cactus NMW 500ml for RM17 per cartoon.

There also donors who have contacted me for groceries donation which I am unable to pick it up due to time constraints. My apologizes for that. And not forgetting Beary, Melvin, Mel Jnr and Kate for going down to Kuantan to ensure we have enough man-power! :)  And with this project, it concludes the last project for 2013.
