Malaysians were proud to be a part of and witness the “long march” undertaken by a group of more than 300 youth volunteers who walked to Kampung Bukit Lanchong in Subang Jaya, Selangor to help flood victims clean their homes and neighbourhoods following the aftermath of the recent floods.

A video shared by social activist Adam Adli showed a very long line of volunteers marching along the road in their yellow construction boots while carrying brooms, buckets and other supplies needed for their selfless escapade.

The “Cuci Mega” post-flood relief effort was apparently organised by the Cuci Malaysia group which has been actively helping clean up areas affected by the floods.

Adam said that they initially expected only about 100 people to join their crew, but was astounded when over 300 people signed up and showed up for cleanup day.

He explained that volunteers chose to walk, and took a scenic 1.5km route in order not to interrupt the flow of traffic to and from the village that was, as he said, “jam-packed” with volunteers and other NGOs that came to help out there.

Netizens were themselves astonished by the efforts shown by the volunteers to help aid their fellow rakyat and wished the volunteers well.

Some even expressed their own intentions of volunteering to help flood victims when they can too.

Others took shots at the media for not giving the volunteers the shout out they deserve.

Meanwhile, a number of the volunteers themselves took the opportunity to share their feelings of fulfilment after having participated in such an event.

For a bit of context, the “Long March” was a historic event that happened in 1934 when the Communists suffered an initial defeat to the Nationalists during the Chinese Civil War and were forced to retreat by walking for a distance of about 10,000km back to safer territories.

This event is said to be one of the moments which solidified Chairman Mao Zedong’s rise to power to form the People’s Republic of China.
