About Appeal

Help Us To Help 30 Childcare Centres & Pre-schools Serving Low Income Families In Terengganu & Pahang to restart and recover 


First the Pandemic, then the Flood. How Do We Recover?

The extremely heavy monsoon rains pounded on the East Coast for a week until January 5, 2021. Not a good way to start the New Year for thousands of families and small busineses. One of those badly affected was the early childhood sector – childcare centres and pre-schools serving low income families in Terengganu and Pahang, in particular in the Districts of Kuantan, Temerloh, Kuala Lipis, Raub, and Kuala Terengganu, Marang and Kemaman in Terengganu. 

Childline Foundation has received an appeal from 30 childcare centre and pre-school operators providing essential childcare and early education to children of low income families. Some of them have suffered losses between RM5,000 - RM15,000.

Destroyed by mud and debris, most suffered loss of furniture, learning materials, toys, and kitchen equipment and will now have to struggle to clean, re-equip and restart their community services. Already at breaking point and on the verge of closures due to the impact of Covid-19 restrictions, they are hard pressed to recover without financial aid.

Why must we help them to recover?

Research has shown without a doubt that the first #1000Days and early years (below 6 years) are critical to children's wellbeing, because the early foundation in nutrition, health and brain development has profound impact on children’s current and future physical, language, cognitive and socio emotional wellbeing.

In the poor rural and urban communities served by these 30 childcare centres and pre-schools, these centres and pre-schools are a lifeline for their parents who otherwise would not be able to go out to work. These children are at high risk of health and learning issues such as stunting, obesity, impaired learning disabilities and poor nutrition. Like all children elsewhere they have a right to access quality early childhood care and learning that will help them to grow and learn. Without your help to recover and restart, it is likely that these 30 centres will close or if they restart with no toys and learning resources, they will revert to custodial care which will severely impair the children's cognitive, language and overall development.

Specifically the funds raised through your kind and generous donations will be utilised in the best interests of children and therefore we will be focused on providing each of the 30 centres and pre-schools with 3 Early Childhood Education (ECE) Boxes of learning materials, toys and essential hygiene sets for the children at these centres - namely the Infant and Toddler Play Box, the Toy Box for children 2-6 years old, and the Hygiene Box at RM1,500 per centre (RM500 per ECE Box).

We therefore hope to reach a fundraising target of RM45,000 with this Recovery Flood Aid donation appeal. We will cover other costs related to procurement, packaging and transportation costs.

Your kind and generous donation (any amount is never too small) will be used in the recovery process of these 30 centres and pre-schools so that they can continue to serve low income families and children. Childline Foundation and the Pahang and Terengganu Early Childhood Educators Associations would like to thank you in advance for your kind and generous donations. 

May God Bless You and Your Families and Keep You Safe in this Pandemic.
