There are currently a ton of donation campaigns going around social media, to help cover for the expenses needed to help those effected by the floods. But, Malaysians are also taking to Twitter to share certain campaigns people should not donate to.

DO NOT DONATE HERE is currently trending on Twitter after a government official took to his personal account to seek donations from the public for flood relief initiatives. Malaysians, on the other hand, are urging netizens to refrain from donating to such initiatives due to the government’s inefficiency throughout the floods.

Donate 1

Minister of Environment and Water, Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, in a since deleted post, gave Malaysians the “opportunity to contribute” to a flood relief fund, which has rubbed people the wrong way. (By the way, the post is still up on the Ministry’s Facebook page!)

Netizens believe that the authorities should be providing aid out of government funding and their own pockets, instead of seeking financial assistance from the public, considering their large salaries and tendencies to spend funds unnecessarily.

“DO NOT DONATE HERE, what are you thinking? Oh asking for donations. Ehhh donating money from your own salary won’t run out la… !!”

“Do not donate here is trending. It’s obvious the people are angry when politicians ask for donations from the public. Especially when he is living easy.”

Donate 6

“Do not donate here! Later he’ll use it to renovate his house. The flood is an excuse.”

Donate 3

“Please do not donate here! Sell your Vellfire, Minister.”

 

Netizens are urging people to, instead, donate to independent parties who are on the ground at flooded areas and are up to their elbows in helping to save those who are stranded, cleaning and repairing dirt and damage, feeding and housing those who have been displaced and treating those who have been hurt or injured.

One of the examples of an independent party given is Muar MP, Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman’s MUDA.

“Only after a few days of flooding does the government want to help victims by ASKING THE PUBLIC TO DONATE. Hello, you are the government, not an NGO. For those who want to contribute, please reach out to MUDA. At least they were helping victims until 4am.”

Be that as it may, it truly is refreshing and uplifting to see Malaysian independent volunteers stepping up and helping our their fellow community members in need when the time calls for it.

So, let’s support our fellow Malaysians by donating and contributing manpower to help feed and house victims and clean and repairs dirty and damaged property.

What are your thoughts on the DO NOT DONATE HERE situation? Let us know in the comment section.
