Prior to the official formation of the Society all the above members of the Board had the opportunity to attend a DART Training Program conducted by Ed Cox in the year 2013 and all our members have acquired the basic knowledge of what need to be done at times of a disaster happening. As for me and KK Looi, both of us were sent to Australia to learn from Skyjuice foundation on the installation of the Sky Hydrant after which we were able to put our knowledge to good use during our recent flood in Kelantan in the year 2015. We were able to display and promote the skyhydrant system to Rotarians at a few District Conferences and District Assembly over the last 2 years.
Disaster Aid Malaysia has been actively promoting Disaster Aid International and its partners in the Asean region by participating and setting up our display booth at District level in the hope of getting the District leaders and their Rotarians to know more about Disaster Aid International and its partners in order to work closely with the Rotary Clubs for the disaster relief works. We plan to carry out more DART training programs in the future.
Over the last two years, we have worked with the Red Crescent to carry out disaster relief works and also other NGO’s in raising funds for this good cause. Since Disaster Aid Malaysia is a very young organisation, we need to promote and create lots of awareness among the Rotary Clubs and its members on our products, services and DART support so that we can become partners in carrying out any Disaster relief works.
DAM would like to show her gratitude and appreciation to DAI & Partners for all your support and commitment rendered to us all these years and DAM will definetly swim and grow with Disaster Aid International and her other great Partners . We would also like to thank David Langworthy for all his guidance and support and all the Board members of DAI.
To our DAM Team, especially KK Looi, KG Tan, Judy Chong, Janice Lim and Fancy Tan, thank so much for your commitment and dedication in bringing Disaster Aid Malaysia to greater heights.
Chairman -Nelson Loong
