With the abundance of campaigns going on social media to fund the flood victims, there is one particular flood relief fund that had the netizens on Twitter urging the people to NOT donate there. 

DO NOT DONATE HERE has been trending on Twitter for a few days now as people are reminded to not donate to any government agencies that seek donations from the public as they believe the government should fork the money out of their own pockets. And to that, Rina Harun has something to say.

The Minister of Women, Family, and Community Development of Malaysia (KPWKM) has asked the people to ignore the infamous DO NOT DONATE HERE campaign, as she believed it is not a wise move given the state of the disaster that our country is currently facing.

“We don’t need that kind of hashtag right now. It doesn’t matter who is helping, as long as the receivers get the benefits,” she said and assured that the received donations will go directly to the rakyat.

In response to the campaign that discourages the public to donate to disaster relief funds organised by the government, Rina also said that the utmost priority now should be focused on making sure the resources are well utilised to help the flood victims.

The campaign, however, urges the people to direct their donations towards NGOs instead. The “reminder” was even sent to Apple Inc who has also offered help to the countries affected by the disaster.

Wearing high heels to visit flood victims

In the meantime, Rina has also broken the silence about her attire during her visit to the flood victims.

“I only had time to change my clothes. I completely forgot about my shoes as my presence in the evacuation centre for the welfare of the rakyat was the priority on my mind.”

A photo of Rina in high heels during her visit to the evacuation centre had gone viral recently, which had prompted the netizens to question her real motive for being there.

At the time of writing, DO NOT DONATE TO GOVERNMENT is currently trending on Twitter.
