1 CREST & IDRN 1100 Training @ FGA Kuala Lumpur.


On 10 Jun, we have conducted community based disaster preparedness training using IDRN 1100 syllabus at FGA Kuala Lumpur. 35 participants signed up for this training.

This would not have been successful without good partnership and support from our host FGA Kuala Lumpur, our relief partners Histeam (7979), The Pink Shoe and Touch Community.

Thank God for his wisdom and our helpful volunteers.

2 Sri Lanka Flood & Landslides

On 14 – 21 June, CREST deployed an assessment team and attended to immediate needs in Sri Lanka together with our local partners. You may click here for our full report.

During our distributions, majority of the afflicted had not received any aid. The needs are plentiful and our help is limited. Dengue outbreaks in the flood area have become our top priority, we are sending in a public health team from 14-19 July.

“We are so touched by your help (Malaysian donors), you are so far away from us, but see our needs. Even our close relatives, just few miles away from us, they have not come to visit us.” SMS received by Ps Sathees (Local Partner).

3 Up Coming Events & Prayer Requests

3.1 Sri Lanka Mission Trip

Kindly join us in prayer for the safety of the team. Mosquitos will be our primary concern, please pray for divine protection for our team, local partners and volunteers.

3.2 Basic Disaster Response Camp, MBS, Kundang (14-17 September 2017).

BDR 2017 is open for registration. This year, we aim for 20 participants for this intensive training. If you have attended IDRN 1100 and 1300 or CREST annual training camps before 2010, come and gain a wider and broader knowledge in Disaster Management.

3.3 2018 Fund Raising Event for CREST.

We are looking for volunteers to help out in our 20th Anniversary Fund Raising Event next year. Please pray together with us for the Lord’s direction. May He provide the wisdom, manpower and resources that are needed.

In Him We Serve,
