KHOM deploys our team of volunteers to assist victims struck by an emergency by delivering the most needed essentials to affected areas.
KHOM responds to two main types of emergency:
Rapid-onset: fast hitting natural disasters, which usually involves flood disasters due to the monsoon season in areas of the East Coast of Malaysia
Slow-onset: disasters which include suffering caused by poverty, conflict and war
Why is it important?
During disasters, without any clear warning, victims would have lost everything they owned including their homes, belongings and may have even lost family members, relatives, or friends. Most would be in shock and have nowhere to turn to. Confused, lost and helpless, it is important that aid arrives quickly to affected areas to combat starvation, suffering and rising crisis.
Providing emergency relief such as below would ensure more lives would be saved than lost.
- Temporary shelter
- Clothing suit to weather conditions
- Hygiene kits and other essentials
Where do your donations go?
Your donation will help us save more lives
During a crisis or major disaster, the quicker the aid arrives on the hit area, the more lives could be saved. Your monthly contributions will help our team responding on the ground to the next natural disaster or humanitarian crisis.
