Flash floods have hit the state of Johor in Malaysia, causing tens of thousands of people to lose their homes. The floods have caused extensive damage, and local authorities have opened hundreds of evacuation centers to provide temporary shelter to those affected.
According to the latest reports, more than 50,000 people have been affected by the floods, with Batu Pahat being the worst-hit district. Other affected areas include Segamat, Muar, Kota Tinggi, Tangkak, and Mersing.
The Malaysian government and related agencies have been working hard to provide assistance to those affected by the floods. Johor State Secretary, Tan Sri Dr. Azmi Rohani, who is also the Chairman of the Johor State Disaster Management Committee, reported that 15 new evacuation centers have been opened while 11 have been closed. The Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia) has issued a yellow weather warning for Kluang, Mersing, and Kota Tinggi as these areas are expected to continue to receive continuous rain until tomorrow.
During a crisis, donations are crucial to support disaster relief efforts. The Malaysian government has called on individuals and organizations to make large-scale donations to help flood victims. The government has established a special fund for flood relief, and the public can make donations through various channels, including online banking, ATMs, and mobile banking apps.
At Myclaaz, we are working in collaboration and targeting to provide funds to affected victims as soon as possible. In addition to monetary donations, we will also use the donated funds to provide essential items such as blankets, clothing, and food.
The floods in Johor have caused significant damage and suffering to the affected communities. We hope that the floodwaters will recede as soon as possible, and the affected communities can start rebuilding their lives.
