KOTA BHARU – A total of 57 journalists affected by the floods in Kelantan in December last year have received aid from NGO Yayasan Salam Malaysia (Salam).
Salam chairman Datuk Ahmad A. Talib said today the aid was in various forms, including mattresses and paint.
“The contribution is not much but, hopefully, it can lighten the burden of these journalists in Kelantan,” he told reporters here.
Meanwhile, Kelantan Darul Naim Media Club (Kemudi) treasurer Muhafandi Muhamad said the contribution was of great help to the journalists.
“As journalists, we continued working even though our houses were under water. So, this contribution means a lot to us.
“We thank Yayasan Salam for appreciating the role of the media with this contribution,” he said. – BERNAMA
