We recently wrote about the unsung heroes who are in the Northern Peninsula of Malaysia, helping victims of the worst flooding Malaysia has ever seen. With many of our readers and team based in Malaysia, it doesn’t seem right to just sit by and watch.
Vulcan Post is joining forces with FundedByMe and Between in an effort to raise cash funds for flood victims in Malaysia. The fundraising site is held on FundedByMe, and all proceeds will go to Mercy Malaysia, a non-profit that is working hard on the ground to help flood victims in this difficult time.
With the support of FundedByMe, additional fees from the crowdfunding site will be waived and only transaction charges (~2%) will apply.
As a result of these floods, more than 160,000 people have been affected, with many losing their homes. They are in need of drinkable water, food, and shelter, and while many volunteers are doing their best to relocate and help survivors, the high flood water levels have made it difficult.
The Malaysian provinces of Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Perak and Perlis are most affected by this disaster.
