“There are 60 families altogether and we are focusing more on the village residents. We are giving them supplies for a month because it’s really very far, so might as well give them things for long term usage,” Food Aid Foundation's director of operations Hayati Ismail told Malay Mail Online.
Heavy monsoon rains in eastern coastal states of Terangganu, Kelantan, and Sabah over the past few weeks caused thousands of residents to evacuate to temporary shelters. The floods have subsided and many residents have returned home, but many are still in need of food and other basic supplies.
