Appeal for Donations and Essential Supplies for Penang Flood Victims

Appeal for Donations and Essential Supplies for Penang Flood Victims

Dear Members,

As Members would be aware, Penang suffered severe floods on 4 and 5 Nov 2017 after heavy downpours and a tropical storm unlike any that Penang has experienced before. Many people have been affected by the floods on both Penang island as well as the mainland, and some of the flood victims include several staff of the Penang Bar Committee and Penang Legal Aid Centre.

The Penang Bar Committee is initiating a donation drive to collect both cash and essential supplies for the flood victims. The Penang Bar Committee’s circular appealing for contribution is reproduced below for your attention.

On behalf of the Kuala Lumpur Bar Committee, I appeal to all our Members to come together to extend our assistance to donate what we can to alleviate the hardship faced by the flood victims. I am sure Members of the Kuala Lumpur Bar will rise to the occasion and render their support to our fellow citizens in this time of need.

All contributions are to be made to the addresses as indicated in the Penang Bar Committee’s circular below. Monetary donations can also be made through direct bank-in or bank transfer to the Penang Bar Committee. The Bank details are as follows:

Bank: Public Bank

Account No: 3060545211

Name: Penang Bar Committee

For donations made by direct bank-in or bank transfer, please fax (04-262 8664) or e-mail (secretariat@penangbar.org) the transaction slip immediately to the Penang Bar Secretariat.

Thanking you in advance for your support and generosity.

Regards,
