AIMST Fundraising for Catastrophic Floods in Klang Valley

This message expresses our profound appreciation for the compassion and kindness towards the fundraising initiative by AIMST University for those affected by the recent catastrophic floods in the Klang Valley. The floods caused many to be displaced, while personal property such as vehicles and homes were damaged. Donations from generous people like you help us continue our good deeds to alleviate the predicament of flood victims, particularly the ‘AIMST Family’ consisting of our students and alumni in the affected areas. On 30 December 2021, we have handed over medications derived from the donations to our alumni, Dr Shalini Devi Ramachandran, who, together with her doctor husband, volunteered for free medical consultations and treatment despite their clinic in Sri Muda being devastated by the flood. We are delighted to have your support in this noble venture, and we hope many others will follow suit in contributing to the donation drive. Meanwhile, we hope that the reconstruction and relief efforts will be accelerated so that those adversely affected by the flash floods can move on and resume their daily lives as soon as possible. Thank you again for your generous help, and we wish you a happy and healthy new year.
