RM25,028.00 handed over to the Malaysian Red Crescent Society
I should like to confirm that Cheques totaling RM25,028.00 collected under the SJ/USJ Tsunami Disaster Relief Fund were handed over to the
Malaysian Red Crescent Society
at a simple ceremony at their Headquarters in Ampang this morning at 10.30am, the event was well attended by the mass media.
Together with 12 other Organisations including the Insurance Brokers, Car dealers, and the Korean Community a cool ¼ of a million ringgit was collected.
It was also pointed out that more than 30 tons of aid was received and awaiting shipment to Aceh, Sri Lanka and India.
Once we have the pictures of the handover, they will be posted here.
A quick thank you for your contribution toward this Community effort.
