Mindef gives RM500 to Armed Forces soldiers at Batu Tiga Camp

The Ministry of Defence (Mindef) has distributed funds amounting to RM500 in the form of cash payouts to 104 military soldiers, which includes 26 civilian staff members, who had their families impacted by floods that devastated the Batu Tiga Camp in Temerloh, Pahang, earlier this month.

Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, a senior defence minister, said the donation was in addition to the RM1,000 assistance which was already announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob as well as the RM500 donation made by the Pahang state government.

Aside from financial assistance, Mindef also provided food baskets as well as essential household appliances such as freezers, kettles, stoves, rice cookers and other household items like pillows, mattresses and bed sheets, even blankets and beds for the homeless, according to him.
