For the most part of last week, we have seen the news of catastrophic floods in Pahang, Kelantan, Terengganu and Johor alarming us with news headlines all over the country. As of 8th December 2013), the total victims now figure at 65,173.
Thought the flood has subsided, the victims are still in need of assistance and help, in any way possible. This is the impetus for loQue’s inspiration behind the #dermakilat initiative, a charity showcase with performances from Da Vagabonds, Go Gerila!, Ana Raffali, Altimet, OAG & of course loQue’s own MonoloQue, to raise funds to help the victims
“We wanted to contribute something different, contributing in the way that we know best. Though the amount we are collecting might not be a huge sum but we are planning to share the aspirations of sharing and giving. Apart from the main aim of delivering aid at a critical time, we also hope to inspire people to put aside any differences in their political views to roll-up their sleeves and contribute,” LoQue explains.
All profits from the event will be donated to the flood victims in Pahang, through the Tengku Puan Pahang Foundation.
