Dealing with all mud and litter, Ideal Property Group Executive Chairman Tan Sri Datuk Alex Ooi and Executive Director Puan Sri Datuk Joanne led a team of over 100 to help in Penang flood relief work.
Ideal Property Group had formed a volunteer team to help out the flood affected area in Georgetown on the past Saturday and Sunday.
The team, all of whom are Ideal Property Group’s staff, helped to tidy up the affected residential areas by washing the muddy road, drain out the ditch mud, clearing the fallen trees and loading away the damaged household items piled up by the roadside.
Ideal’s volunteer team headed to Dato’ Keramat on last Saturday to carry out the flood relief work with cleaning zone covering Jalan Gopeng, Jalan Langkawi, Jalan Tramway and Lorong Kulit. Whereby on the next day, the team continue their effort to clean up Taman Free School and Kampung Dodol.
Ideal Property Group had total contributed 5 hydraulic jet trucks, 2 lorries, 2 backhoes and 30 construction trollies during the two days flood relief work. As the team realized that most affected area were covered with mud, the team had contacted Persatuan Bomba Sukarela Sri Tanjung to join the cleaning work by sending 2 fire engines.
In addition, the team helped with reparation of 5 flood-hit homes that were destroyed by the storms at Jalan Langkawi. The volunteers also revisited these repaired homes during a follow-up trip to the area on 24 November 2017.
