Several mothers at a temporary relief centre in Kuala Berang, Terengganu took on the role of chefs to help feed 99 flood victims there.

The mothers voluntarily took turns to cook three meals a day for all the evacuees.

"After one group prepares breakfast, the other group will handle lunch and dinner.

"As for tea, it's mostly just coffee, tea and biscuits," said Nurul Fadilah Che Mat, 40, from Kampung Gunung Menerong.

She said there is no reason for there to be insufficient food supply at the centre.

Meanwhile, 46-year-old Zuraida Yusof said it's not just the mothers who have been doing all the work, the men too have helped out by ensuring the cleanliness of the centre's surrounding area.

"As this centre is a school and our children also study here, it's only natural for us to maintain its cleanliness although it is the school holidays. At least when our children come back to school, they will find it clean and comfortable," she said.
