Apart from cash donations, the people can also donate relief materials such as clothes, dried food and other necessities at Government House everyday during 8.30am-4pm. The dried foods should not have expired and the clothes should be still in a good condition, Mr Sompas said.

Mr Sompas said the government will continue to take donations for an indefinite period as the victims still need more relief supplies.
