Good news, guys. You can now play a role in helping the world.
There is now a way for you to help in disaster management
with the government’s initiative to start the National Disaster Relief Fund (TBBN)
This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.
According to a report in Free Malaysia Today
, TBBN will be managed by the National Disaster Management Agency (Nadma) under the Prime Minister’s Department.
Wan Azizah said Nadma’s main function would be to help the government coordinate donations from various parties, including individuals, because currently, there is no coordination in handling disaster relief donations.
She added that donations will be kept in the National Disaster Relief Trust Fund (KWABBN) account and governed by the KWABBN Trust Deed.
"The government wants to extend this fund to encourage contribution of the private sector, voluntary bodies and individuals on the principle that disaster management is the responsibility of all," she said.
Now would be a good time to have one less bubble tea a week and donate your spare change to this fund instead.
