Orang Asli flood victims by KAMARIDUAN MOHD NOR

For the Temier tribe in Kampung Tameng, a small orang asli village, situated deep in the jungle of Kuala Betis, seeing outsiders coming in by a helicopter was a rare sight. For the tribe, it was as if their prayers were answered because the EC-120B aircraft had brought for them the much-needed food and medical supplies. The Temier tribe had been shut out from the outside world since the heavy rain had caused a landslide which closed off the only access road out of the village, since end of last year.They were left helpless without proper food and drinking water ever since the heavy rainfall destroyed their settlements and crops.
