PUTRAJAYA – A bus from the National Registration Department (NRD), which is equipped with MyKad and birth certificate application counters left for the east coast from here along with 200 volunteer staff from the department under its flood relief mission, today.
Its deputy director-general (Management) Datin Seri Elena Chiang Abdullah, who is heading the mission said the bus would stop in several suitable locations in Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan to allow flood victims to apply for new MyKads and birth certificates.
“Victims can then collect their MyKads and birth certificates from the nearest NRD office once the documents are ready,” she told reporters before the convoy left from the NRD headquarters here.
She said the staff who had volunteered for the mission were from NRD offices in Putrajaya, Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Melaka and Negeri Sembilan.
“The NRD Flood Relief Mission will also bring foodstuff, cooking utensils, washing equipment and mineral water. Some of the volunteers in this mission will be heading to Perak while the rest will be going to the east coast states,” she said, adding that the mission would take around a week to complete.
Elena said that the main objective of the mission was to clean NRD offices affected by the floods besides cleaning its staff’s quarters and surroundings.
She said among the offices worst affected by floods was the one in Tanah Maerah where the floods water almost reached its roof. – BERNAMA
