BUSINESS & IT LEADERS PUT THEIR BEST FOOT FORWARD FOR PENANG FLOOD RELIEF

Technology played a huge role in rallying the efforts of local IT and business leaders, to offer relief to victims of the recent Penang flood. Using online messaging service, WhatsApp, cybersecurity consultancy service provider, Firmus, organised a fundraising campaign, which in the space of 30 hours, managed to raise RM25,000. The idea to conduct a fund raising exercise in the chat room, first came from from Choong Yat Weng, CIO of Malacca Securities. He merely wanted to help out and pointed out he also had friends on the ground in Penang, providing food and clothings. In fact, a few chat room members were in Penang during the flood, and were helping out via organisations like the Rotary Club of Penang and the ‘Persatuan Bomba Sukarela Kota Permai.’
