World Vision Malaysia has completed its fundraising effort for Malaysia Floods. If you would like to support our work in ongoing disasters and emergencies around the world, please give to General Humanitarian Emergencies Fund.

 

Updated: 25 February 2015

The worst floods in 30 years have affected several states, especially the northern and eastern regions, displacing over 200,000 people.

World Vision Malaysia is partnering with a Malaysian relief organisation CREST (Crisis Relief Services and Training) to provide emergency aid to the affected communities. We responded in the most affected areas, including Tumpat, Kuala Krai, Tanah Merah, Rantau Panjang, and Gua Musang in Kelantan.
