This is an urgent appeal from my friends who are in close contact with the Orang Asli communities….
Our Orang Asli friends are in need of immediate aid! They are facing economic problems and shortage of supplies due to the Restricted Movement Order (RMO).
Unlike you, they cannot simply nip out to the corner grocery shop or the supermarket round the corner.
Moreover, their normal sources of income have been stopped because of the RMO…
Their supplies of food are dwindling.
Please refer to the posters below, on how you can help.
I/We will keep you updated with latest number of villages and fundraising status.
We will get through this together.
Thank you everyone for your help and generosity
We are from 4×4 Relief Malaysia, a small group of Volunteers who does work for the Orang Asli Community in Kelantan.
On the 6-8 March, just before the MCO, we did a big Medical, Food, School Uniforms, Games Mission at 5 villages in Kelantan.
We have some 85 Ration Packs which has 10 of the items you listed in your proposed Rations Pack.
Now our Government, JAKOA, COAC, JAOS have strongly advised any Outreach to any OA Village for fear of COVID-19 spread to the interiors.
So how do we send Rations to the Villages ? We are not willing to hand them over to anybody without supervision or accountability for reasons you would also be aware of.
Any ideas ?
