The video is uploaded in TikTok by one of the people from the catering team. She further said that they didn’t manage to help everyone there but it’s the least they could do.

Some of us have the resources, will, and ability and to help and some of us can only pray and hope for the best.

We all can play a part during this tough time, either by contributing monetary aid or just spending time to get the public to be aware of this.

With awareness, you can also get the right people to contribute to the aid. You, too, can help.

However, stop spreading fake news. Do research, get affirmation, and be up to date with the information first before sharing. #kitajagakita #daruratbanjir
