There are obvious signs and indications that Malaysia is now a welfare state as the economy is spewing and sputtering while millions of Malaysians look for handouts, cash aid and donations from the government and charitable bodies.

These are the present hard, harsh realities of life for many Malaysians as inflation and the rising cost of living cause people to be pushed to the brink of poverty and want which is what is being witnessed around us now.

There is no escaping the fact that millions of Malaysians are in need of financial aid and therefore appeals are being made to the super rich, wealthy and elite to contribute generously to charities who safeguard the welfare and well being of the poor and needy.

Donors are being asked to donate money, second hand clothing that are in good condition, food to reputable charitable organizations that are bona fides as a number of rogue charities have emerged to profit from the situation.

This financial and economic crisis is set to be protracted and therefore to ensure peace and stability those who have surplus to their requirements are being asked to consider sharing with those who are less fortunate.

There has to be solidarity now among Malaysians and resilience to pull through this critical phase of the nation as never before have so many people been suffering due in large part to a global recession.
