Time has come for us to carry on the good work and do another charity drive at Alibaba Restaurant TTDI. This time to 5 orang Asli villages in Bukit Ibam Rompin. We have information that their village are very badly affected by the flood and todate no relief has been sent to them. These are the kind of people that our team of Amateur Radio can be effective in our charity drive. Fully equipped with off-road vehicle we can come in and support those out of reach from government and corporate help.
We have received information from the local Balai Polis that these villages were cut off due to the floods and some were flooded with 6 ft of water and are in dire need of food and clothing supplies.
Again , their problem is just beginning, like most of you have seen in our previous charity drive these people don't even have a house to go back to unlike the city victims. Compared to Segamat Kecil, they are in worst situation and they need your help . We also need volunteers who are professionals in off-roading as theses tracks are challenging. These areas are extremely remote ! those planning to go must be prepared.
We, friends of RKK amateur radio will support our HAM off-road team by having this charity event. We do not accept monetary donations. You can donate items which will be purposeful for the flood victims such as used clothes, school clothes, stationary items for the school children, and dry and basic food stuff amongst others. No perishable items, please. This is purely on a voluntary basis amongst friends of Amateur Radio and we appeal that you donate generously.
So far we have collected many items from members of the public and HAM members. Plus we have balance from previous charity drive.
So, come on down and drop-off your donations at the Ali Baba Restaurant - No. 10 & 12 Jalan Wan Kadir TTDI - Behind the old IBM building. Our collection point will open Wednesday night 31st Jan 2007 at 8.00pm until morning. The convoy will leave by 9 am Thursday morning.
We assure you that items donated will go directly to the villages concern. This is an opportunity for us to join hands and contribute to a worthwhile cause. Those who would like to join the convoy and assist in the handling and distribution of the relief items can join us by contacting organizers below.
These people need your help!.
