|The month of December of 2014 was a period of hardship and loss for the residents living along the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Since mid-December, the Northeast monsoon rains and wind battering the East coast were relentless, with Terengganu, Kelantan and Pahang affected by the worst flash flooding seen in years, with nearly 59,000 residents evacuated from their home and crippled by devastating casualties. The Tzu Chi KL & Selangor centres were the first respond to the situation to provide disaster relief efforts to a few heavily affected areas such as Gua Musang (Kelantan), and Kuala Lipis and Temerloh (Pahang).
With the flood survivors and evacuees in mind, great care was taken by Tzu Chi Malaysia Foundation to draw up relief aid plans in which cash aid and emergency relief supplies containing blankets and household essentials were delivered directly into the hands of disaster survivors stationed at the 3 main evacuation centres in the affected states. In a show of good faith, FingerTec stepped up to its role as an active partner in the community and contributed a total of RM 10, 000 in donations to help fund the Tzu Chi Foundation disaster relief effort for the immediate relief and rehabilitation of the affected communities that is still ongoing at the worst flood-hit areas.
