Below are the 3 part posts of some of the stories from Sri Muda Flood victims that I have acquainted during my kayak assist mission at Sri Muda Flood Zone. The time are bad and the victim are hopeless against the sudden sudden flood. While Sri Muda was infamous for flood in the 90s, the flood back then was only waist deep. This time, it flooded the entire 1st floor of the house. Saw some video on FB and suddently struck me , I got kayak. I can help. Middle of the night, sent out message to my community members and we suddenly have a group of volunteers of 5 kayak and 1 motorboat. # Part 1 # Some context of the story. The flood were 10 feet high. All the houses were submerged in the water with no electric, food and water supply. Many of the victim's last meal was the night before. The volunteers were in to help supply food, and transfer old, children, pregnant if they need to go to dry land. Meanwhile, it is uncertain if the flood will get higher or not as the rain may come and the authorities are still releasing water from the Klang Gate Dam which has breach the critical level. Story 1) "Bang! Bang! boleh tolong hantar isteri. Dia mengandung", this is how i got met with this Indian family of 8. They are all safe and dry stranded on second floor of the house. But water and food supply are running low. After 4 trips, I managed to bring all, and swap their father from dry land with their mother from the house. After the trip, the uncle try to force RM50 to me. Which I refused. How can I when they are suffering so much loss. After much debate, I said, "Uncle, ada 1 saya mau tolong. Tolong bagi 1 seluar lama. Seluar saya sudah koyak. Malu saya". Back on the land with their older mother, again, the son try to force money to me. I refused, "uncle sudah bagi saya 1 seluar. Settle". Even when you have almost nothing, there are still something you can help. Story 2) "LengZai! LengZai! We are ok here, but there is a 94 years old lady in a house at the corner", a Chinese lady requested to me. I went to the house, call out but no respond from her. The Indian man next door said to me "Bang! kasi saya itu roti saya bagi kat aunty. Dia tak mau keluar. " As I gave him the bread and some extra, he reassured me "Jangan risau bang, itu aunty kita orang ada tolong jaga". That's generally the spirit among the neighbours there.
