SUNWAY Carnival Mall in Seberang Prai has come forward to help the flood victims in the east coast states.

Items like canned food, biscuits, mineral water, milk powder, rice, diapers, soap and clothing were collected through the ‘Share For Care Flood Aid’ programme. The initiative was held at the mall’s upper ground concourse from Jan 1 to Jan 11.

The mall’s general manager Chow Heng Wah said the aid was donated by shoppers, tenants and their staff members. “We thank them all for the support.

“We hope we can alleviate the suffering of the flood victims,” he said.

He was speaking after handing over the items to the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) North Seberang Prai chapter recently.

MRCS deputy chairman Nick Foo Toon Yong, who was present to receive the aid, thanked the mall for coming up with the initiative to help the needy. “The aid will be sent to our headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.

“Then, it will be delivered to the victims in Kelantan, Terengganu, Perak and Pahang,” he said.

Let’s make New Year vow to give

Monday, December 29th, 2014


THE 10th Penang Golden New Year’s Eve Countdown Celebration (PG2015) will see a fundraising initiative held in aid of the flood victims in the country.

PG2015 organised by CreatiVision D.C. Sdn Bhd and endorsed by the Penang Municipal Council will be held from 5pm to midnight on Wednesday.

CreatiVision managing director Adelyn Lim said the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) would be setting up a counter during PG2015 to collect aid for the flood victims.

“Every event must be able to ‘send a message’, and this event can be a platform to help the victims of floods.

“The public can hand over donations at the MRCS counter at the Esplanade from 10am until after midnight on Wednesday.

“There will also be a cycling event called the ‘Ride of Light’ in which G-Club Penang Cyclists is the co-organiser,” Lim said during an interview at Glow Penang in Macalister Road on Saturday.

Lim said the cycling route would cover the Esplanade, Farquhar Street, Penang Road, Prangin Street and Beach Street.

“The MRCS and a van will be following the route to collect items donated by the public between 7.30pm and 8.30pm.

“Those who are along the route and wish to donate can call 019-2720999 or 019-2272000,” she said.

Lim asked the public to keep themselves updated by visiting CreatiVision’s Facebook page at

She said the initiative to help the flood victims was called ‘Love from Penang Fund Raising Campaign for the Flood Victims’.

“The initiative is by Rainbow of Life Forces (ROLF): Gold Ribbon Grant-A-Wish Campaign.

“ROLF is the charity arm of CreatiVision,” she said.

Lim added that there would be no fireworks display during PG2015. Instead, a moment of silence will be observed.

At a press conference in Glow Penang, MRCS island chapter chairman Nancy Cheah said the preferred form of donation was cash.

“The cash is needed so that supplies can be obtained as required from sources closer to the affected areas.

“However, those who wish to donate foodstuff can contribute canned food, milk, and Milo among other items.

“Donations can also be made via cheque to MRCS Penang Branch or via deposit to its account in Public Bank (3087736505).

“The public can call MRCS Penang Branch at 04-8275678 for more details,” Cheah said.

For more details of PG2015, the public can visit or CreatiVision’s Facebook page at

Alternatively, call its hotline (03-62500999 or 019-2694000).
