3. Post Penang Flood
On 21st May 2018, SJK Chung Hwa 3, Perai received a donation of 100 sets of students tables and chairs. The school was affected by the Penang Flood in Nov 2017 and many of their wooden furniture were badly damaged. The new tables and chairs for the students are made of plastic and will be able to withstand any future floods. Besides this donation from CREST, the school had also done their own fundraising to replace the much needed furniture. SJK Chung Hwa 3 Perai is grateful for the donations.
In our initial assessment of the flooded community, Taman Senangin, the school was identified as the optimal location for distribution of 400 wardrobes due to ease of accessibility and space.
Mdm. Ng Meng Yau, the school headmistress had graciously allowed CREST to use the facilities and we wish to acknowledge our thanks and appreciation to her and her staff.
