“As a community radio station, Kupikupi FM’s purpose is to serve the needs of the local communities in Sabah. The flood has displaced many locals and impacted their lives in ways we cannot imagine. While we have been sharing as many updates about the flood situations as part of our role as a media organisation, we are glad to have worked together with HEINEKEN Malaysia in providing on-ground support to the flood victims. It is always meaningful to have been able to lend a helping hand to those in need,” said Lester Calvin Miol, General Manager of Kupikupi FM.
Filus @ Gilbert Kitung, Village Head of Kampung Penampang Baru Kimanis, Papar, said, “None of us expected that the heavy downpour would turn into floods that would destroy our home and damage our crops. We are grateful that there are no casualties, and that organisations such as HEINEKEN Malaysia and Kupikupi FM have gone out of their way to help families, much like mine, who have fallen victims to the floods – the food aid will help to tide us over as we get our lives back into order.”
