ABOUT THE PROJECT


#TogetherWithU

Annually, the east coast states of Peninsular Malaysia face the Northeast Monsoon from November to March. Flooding in these areas are fairly normal however, this year took a drastic turn of events when the rainwater count increased more than usual.

The affected states have seen rainfall from mid December 2014 till today. The National Security Council has warned that rivers have reached dangerous levels causing it to overflow. Roads collapsed and houses and businesses are left to drown. This being the worst we have seen in decades, many lives have been affected by the flood either directly or indirectly.

To date, the flood crisis in the East Coast has reported 21 fatalities but the amount of missing people has yet to be confirmed. As of the Official Malaysian disaster website, 45,118 evacuees are currently sheltered in the relief centres in the 6 affected states in Malaysia. Although the numbers of evacuees have decreased as compared to the previous week, it is estimated to increase in several states with the continuous rainfall.

This being said, the flood victims predicaments are just increasing as there are currently no electricity in some places which are badly affected and SPAN has reported that many major places are not able to receive their supply of clean water. Food supplies are limited, crops were damaged, and it is all back to square one for most.


This is the reason we are launching #TogeherWithU campaign, where MDeC and the MSC tech community will come together and do our part to rebuild the lives of those who have been affected by the recent flood. Every pledge received for #TogetherWithU will be channeled to improve the livelihood of the flood victims via care packages through respective NGOs that are working together with MDeC. The NGOs that are hands-in-hands with MDeC are from MERCY Malaysia and Akademi Inovasi Malaysia (MyWin), which will provide their expertise and resources to channel the help to the needy. For latest updates on the floods, please visit TogetherWithU.my


Please note that 100% of the pledges will go to the NGOs that are involved in this campaign.

Project update:
MDeC and Mercy Malaysia has identified Kampung Limau Kasturi, in Gua Musang, Kelantan as a beneficiary of the contributions made to #TogetherWithU project.





Kampung Limau Kasturi, located in a Remote village, it takes an hour drive in from the main road. Several roads have caved in and the main form of transportation is by train. However, the train station was fully submerged and the tracks were destroyed by the floods. The whole village was fully submerged as well and most of the houses are either washed away or rendered inhabitable.
Most of the villagers occupation are fisherman and rubber tappers and up till now, Water and Electricity is still down.





In total, out of 92 Homes, 90 was destroyed. this affected 115 Families. This also means it is a major income loss for this group.







The team behind #TogetherWithU aspires to build 10 shelter homes for the families in Kampung Limau Kasturi and that will cost RM15,000 for raw materials and labor costs.


Let's pitchIN and do our part as a community to make a difference in someone's life!

About MDeC, MSC Malaysia & Digital Malaysia

The Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) was incorporated in 1996 to strategically advise the Malaysian Government on legislation, policies and standards for ICT and multimedia operations as well as to oversee the development of the Malaysian Multimedia Super Corridor (now MSC Malaysia). MSC Malaysia became the platform to nurture the growth of Malaysian Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the IT industry whilst attracting participation from global ICT companies to invest and develop cutting-edge digital and creative solutions in Malaysia.

In 2011, 15 years after the introduction and successful implementation of MSC Malaysia, MDeC's mandate was broadened by the Prime Minister to include driving Malaysia's transition towards a developed digital economy by 2020 through Digital Malaysia. Following this, in 2012, Digital Malaysia was officially unveiled as the national transformation programme to achieve this aim.

Founded on three strategic thrusts, Digital Malaysia is a natural progression to harness the building blocks already laid by MSC Malaysia. It will drive wealth creation, stimulate efficiency and enhance quality-of-life by harnessing and building upon Malaysia's varied ICT initiatives, resulting in a nation that connects and empowers government, businesses and citizens through a vibrant and demand-focused digital ecosystem.
