Kelantan was hardest hit during the 2014-2015 floods in Malaysia. Three days of continuous heavy rain between December 21st to 23rd caused major Kelantan rivers to rise above dangerous levels, flooding 70% of villages and displacing over 200,000 people – half of the state’s population. As most roads into Kelantan were submerged, volunteers only began arriving on December 28th when waters began to subside.
To deter hunger and an imminent outbreak of disease, two things had to be quickly brought to Kelantan – food and cleaning supplies. Realising the urgent need to respond to the emergency, ICE Petroleum together with friends from KFM Holdings Sdn Bhd joined the wave of volunteers and pooled resources to bring essential supplies to victims. At designated shelters, our response team prepared and distributed cooked meals and drinking water to over 1,000 victims. As soon as it was safe for the victims to return home, we mobilised our team to perform clean-up operations to remove the massive amount of mud, debris and garbage left by the flood waters along roads and inside residences.
