MERCY MALAYSIA’S EFFORTS
MERCY Malaysia received heart-warming in-kind donations from Brands Outlets Boulevard Branch, MAA (Shomos) and Limetree Hotel Kuching that were distributed to those affected by the fire. The affected families were accommodated in a temporary stay while some lived with their relatives nearby. The aftermath of the catastrophic event destroyed their belongings as well as their harvest for the year.
