Gerakan Mansuhkan ISA (GMI) has a family support group named Pusat Sokongan Keluarga (PSK-GMI) which solely set up to look into the needs of the families(ISA victims) that separated from their husbands by the present government.
I join this group as a voluntary worker since 2004 and well understood that PSK has no financial institution expected to back up the financial problems of the families. Actually the money comes from the rakyat. Normally, to get a sum of money to be distributed to the families, especially during festive season like Hari Raya, my friend Nashita and I will have to drive donations from the public.
The needs of the families are different. A mother with 8 of course needs more compared to a "single parent' with only a child ,like me.And the occupation of the mother also put into consideration in the way we distributed the donations.We only cater basic needs of the families for like food and clothing, therefore, not much we can give each of them.
As we are getting nearer to the festive season, we, in PSK, put our biggest hope to you Malaysians to help us get th amount that can be distributed to these families to cover their basic expenses for the coming Hari Raya.We hope to give each families at least RM 300 - 800 each.Thats why we set at least RM20k in our account before the end of next week.
You may bank in your donations to May Bank 162209939776, under name of Nashita Mohd Noor, GMI's treasurer.
InsyaAllah, I'l try to update the amount we received, daily.
