On March 1st, Johor was hit by heavy rain which caused severe flooding not only in Chaah Segamat, but also in many other low-lying areas. One of these areas was Kota Tinggi where water levels reached up to 3 meters or higher.
Therefore, we contacted the principal of the SJK(C) New Kota in Kota Tinggi, Johor. After that arranged to pack and deliver the needed supplies to the school.
On March 12, 2023, Amitabha Malaysia delivered 50 sets of supplies and other necessary items to the SJK(C) New Kota and worked together with the school principal, teachers and volunteers to help students, staff, and nearby flood victims affected by the flooding.
On that day, Amitabha Malaysia delivered the supplies to SJK(C) New Kota at 10:00 a.m. and distributed the supplies to flood victims door-to-door with the chairman, principal, teachers, and volunteers. Through communication with the flood victims, we learned that some elderly people could not move fast enough to evacuate in time and were knocked down by the flood, while others had to soak in the water waiting for rescue by kind-hearted people. After the flood, flood victims also needed a lot of time and manpower to clean and organize their homes to restore their living places. We provided supplies to help flood victims ease the post-disaster pressure. The residents in the disaster area deeply appreciated our assistance.
We would like to thank the Principal and Chairman of the SJK(C) New Kota, Kota Tinggi, Johor for their cooperation and assistance in helping flood victims affected by the flood.
