Malaysian Students Got US$3,000 in 5 days

UPDATE: The ASA member in Malaysia, DEMA, together with other organizations managed to raise RM12,000 since December 31, 2004. Even some harassment by the police and the security in Malaysia, they managed to go trhough those obstacles.

According to the spokeperson of the Solidarity Mahasiswa Malaysia (SMM) or Malaysian Student Solidarity, Khoirol Anwar, they set the target of RM10,000 before, now they exceeded the target. The fund raising took place in several big cities in Malaysia. 24 student organizations from different universities work together in the nation-wide fund raising campaign for the relief oepration in Tsunami areas.

This campaign will continue for a month until end of the January.

From the ASA, we welcome the Malaysian student for their hard works and commitment to help the victims. We hope they will continue their efforts in other means besides fund raising. We hope they will come out with some other concrete actions.

At the same time, for those who are working on the Tsunami issue, please update the secretariat.
