We recognize the need to work differently in order to adapt to the challenges and opportunities in today’s fast changing world. Hence, we at MRCS echo the International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC) strategic aim of strategy 2020 which is savings lives, protecting livelihoods, and strengthening recovery from disaster and crises; enabling healthy and safe living; and promoting social inclusion and a culture of non-violence and peace. We are doing everything possible to maintain these strategic aims.
In the wake of what was considered the worst flooding last year in Malaysia in over 30 years, the MRCS garnered positive support from the public and corporates. Together we distributed 120 tonnes of relief items to communities in Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang, the worst hit flood areas.
Following the releases of the Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (DREF), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) delivered 10,000 blankets for 5,000 families to MRCS.
