Hygiene kits were procured in Kuala Lumpur, Kelantan and Terengganu before being transported to affected areas. At MERCY Malaysia base camps in Kelantan, MERCY Malaysia volunteers assembled hygiene kits, additional food items and non-food items before they were distributed to the affected communities.
Distribution centres were identified according to needs assessments and in coordination with the District Health Office (DHO). Distribution of hygiene kits ranged from mass distribution in evacuation centres to house-to-house distribution. Diaper packets, undergarments, sanitary pads and water cartons were procured locally and distributed to those identified by the needs assessment team and DHO.
MERCY Malaysia has also distributed other items such as food parcels benefitting 14,850 in Kuala Krai and 14,108 individuals in Pasir Mas respectively. To add, our teams have managed to distribute Hygiene Kits to the affected families in Kelantan, 162 sets to Tanah Merah, 1475 sets to Pasir Mas and 363 sets to Rantau Panjang.
Our teams will carry out construction of an initial three tube wells to provide access to clean water supply for the flood-affected communities. MERCY Malaysia is in the process of identifying locations for the community tube well. We hope to build water points for communal use whereby the general public would have access to the facilities prepared.
