Despite the threat of the new covid variant, Omicron, and the hazardous flood situation, many people were seen actively helping flood victims including our fury friends in any way possible.
Yesterday, the Hulu Langat District’s Volunteer Aid Detachment 94 (VAD94), a Malaysian Red Crescent team, opened a Field Clinic at the Temporary Evacuation Center for flash flood victims in Dusun Nanding, Hulu Langat, to provide medical aid.
The evacuation centre was set in Sekolah Rendah Agama in Dusun Nanding, where 42 families totaling 190 victims were evacuated. The majority of the victims are residents of Dusun Nanding and Kampung Sungai Serai.
This team is led by Kaantha Rooban, Manimugilan, Yugabalan, Jacob Thevan and Kishen, they hold respective positions in this NGO. Along with the officers, around 6 members of PBS 94 also joined the team for this mission.
This temporary clinic has been set up at the evacuation centre from 9.20 pm to 12 am. The aim of this Field Clinic is to solely provide small-scale emergency treatment to flood victims.
The majority of those receiving treatment had some minor cases such as sores, dizziness, vomiting and limb discomfort.
Even in the blackout situation at the evacuation centre, the Red Crescent officers and the other members were seen as very dedicated and helpful in handling the concerning situation.
The victims that received treatment and medical aid were very pleased as the members were so helpful and generous throughout their stay there. The Dusun Nanding Evacuation Center that was set up at Sekolah Rendah Agama, Dusun Nanding was opened to the victims last Saturday at 9 pm.
We hope those that have spare time would join hands and help the victims. Even the slightest amount of assistance will make a difference.
Kudos to the whole team! Thank you, heroes!
