Since years ago, CREST has dedicated the month of September for training events for a purpose. Firstly, we are trying to avoid Malaysia monsoon session from Oct-Dec, and we may equip our volunteers to response when disaster happen during the session of monsoon.

We are using the International Disaster Response Network (IDRN) syllabus for Community Based Disaster Preparedness (CBDM). Partnering with Malaysian Care in Kuala Lumpur and NECF in Kuala Terengganu, more than 60 volunteers have equipped and ready to serve.

It is such a joy and thanksgiving to see many nations have come together to share and learn from each other in our annual camp. During the camp, we have celebrated Malaysia Day with praises and prayers.
