Charity: Project Nenek Trong

This is Nenek Trong. She is 80 years old and lives all alone in the middle of a palm oil estate. For money, she goes out to sea to collect lokan to sell. She had two sons. However, one has passed away while the other lives all the way in Kuantan and seldom visits.

Her house was under water for four days during the flood, and this has caused her concrete floor to crack and warp.

The electrical wiring in her house is faulty; her zinc roof has holes all over; and the wire mesh covering her house windows, which are meant to keep monkeys out, have been broken by the monkeys themselves. When asked about her sleeping situation, she answers that she sleeps in "the wet room" as the roof all around the house has holes in it.

If you'd love to help out Nenek Trong, this is your chance. Volunteer architect Rohaidzad Rashid estimates that RM15k is needed to fix up her house. For details on how to help, read on.
