Background

In November 2017, a flood hit Penang. The local churches seek assistance from CREST and CREST responded in clean-up and distribution operations at Zoo Road Ayer Itam, distribution of wardrobe furniture to residents of Taman Senangin Prai as well as donation of school tables and chairs to SJKC Chung Hwa 3, Prai.

Background

Based on assessments done in Taman Senangin and Kampung Mainroad, CREST has decided to distribute wardrobe furniture in the area as by requested majority of the residents.

Background

CREST has nurtured good relationships with locals in Zoo Road due to previous activities in the area. However, we have also decided to extend our help to a neighboring Malay Kampung off Zoo Road 3, Ayer Itam. Prior assessments had already been conducted and we have identified an area of need amongst the community in the form of electrical appliances. Meanwhile, the Tamil speaking community of Taman Senangin located in Perai of mainland Penang had previously requested for help as they had received minimal help since initial flooding earlier in November.
