The MRC Penang Branch will be having its Annual Flag Day 2015 on Saturday, 28 March 28, 2015 and Sunday March 29, 2015.  During the two days Malaysian Red Crescent Youth and Adult members will take to the streets with their Flag Day tins to seek funds from generous members of the public for our Humanitarian Projects & Activities.  MRC Penang hopes to raise RM 150,000 through this Project.  Therefore any amount of donation is welcome.

Every Red Crescent member has the ultimate goal to alleviate human suffering, and we serve without thinking of the creed, race, colour or gender of those who need our help.  To us, they are people who have placed their hopes in our hands.

To be able to respond efficiently and effectively, our Red Crescent members need to be trained. Their first aid and rescue skills have to be constantly upgraded and updated.  Hence, we are always in need of funds to train our members, to upgrade our ambulances and rescue vehicles and equipments. Part of the funds raised will also be used to finance the three 12-hour Ambulance Service Centres based in Permatang Tinggi (Seberang Perai Tengah); Butterworth (Seberang Perai Utara); and Batu Maung (on Penang Island). So the Flag Day is an important component of the MRC annual fund-raising projects.

As the Flag Day Project Organising Chairman, I appeal to members of the public to step forward and donate generously for the MRC Penang humanitarian cause.
