The cheque of RM20,000 for the Malacca Flood Victims Fund was presented to the Chief Minister of Malacca, YAB Datuk Seri Hj Mohd Ali bin Mohd Rustam on Dec 20, 2006. Food supplies amounting to RM10,000 were personally sent on behalf of Honda Malaysia by its General Manager of Administration, Tuan Mansor Ibrahim to nine flood relief centres in the Alor Gajah district.
