IOI Plantation Services Sdn Bhd (IOI Plantation) extended both help and flood relief within its operational areas as well as the surrounding communities in Johor, Pahang and Sabah, following the torrential rain which began on 16 December 2021, which inundated seven out of 13 states in Malaysia.

Employees of IOI Plantation at Bukit Dinding Estate worked swiftly with the residents of Taman Sri Makmur, Karak, Pahang to clear both mud and debris by mobilising six of the estate’s tractors when floodwater receded. These clean-up efforts took place between 19 to 23 December 2021.

IOI Plantation also provided RM6,000 worth of flood relief, consisting of rice, cooking oil, flour and other food aid to the flood victims, while also having distributed clean water to residents by sourcing directly from the river using Bukit Dinding estate’s road.

Meanwhile, over at Tambang Estate in Segamat, Johor, IOI Plantation employees rapidly constructed an excess road for villagers at Kampung Spang Loi to escape for refuge at the nearest flood relief centre, as well as helped supply clean water to the villagers. During evacuation, IOI Plantation employees worked quickly to move and salvage what they could from each villagers’ homes including items such as essential electronic appliances and furniture before the flood situation worsened. After the flood receded, IOI Plantation employees once again stepped out to efficiently help remove debris and clutter, allowing the villagers to rebuild their homes.

At the height of the flood crisis, IOI Group's charitable foundation, Yayasan Tan Sri Lee Shin Cheng, donated RM50,000 to the Tabung Misi Bantuan Banjir Negara through Yayasan Komuniti Negara to assist in the country’s flood relief effort, towards purchasing food baskets and other essential goods, relocating flood victims to safe locations as well as to providing aid in cleaning and repairing their damaged houses. On top of that, the foundation continues providing aids and financial assistances to IOI employees and the local communities who are affected by the flood.
