20 Dec – The National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS) is offering its Merdeka Studio Complex in Hulu Klang as a temporary evacuation centre for flood victims.
The news was announced by its new CEO, Prof Dr Md Nasir Ibrahim, who stated that the building itself is able to accommodate about 1,000 flood victims.
"In addition to that, FINAS' assets including its three 4WD vehicles and vans are ready to be used in relief missions," he said.
