As of yesterday, there were 7,294 evacuees in 50 relief centers in Penang. Among them are many children whose lives have been turned upside down.

During disaster, the young are sensitive to distress and vulnerable to physical harm. They need special attention to recover from traumatic events such as separation from family, disruption, displacement and loss.

Spare a thought for the kids. Apart from solving their physical needs, let’s offer them a bit of comfort to put their minds at ease during this stressful time.

We are asking for donations of arts and recreation supplies for children of all ages. Due to safety and hygiene consideration we ask that you exercise judgment in choosing appropriate items.

With your help, we can share some love and cheer to the kids in Penang. So that they, too, can bounce back to normal life soon.
