21 Dec - Despite being far away from home, singer-songwriter Yuna couldn't help but feel saddened by the news of the massive floods that have struck some of the states in Peninsular Malaysia.

On 19 December, the "Crush" singer posted a series of Instagram Stories, in which she shared an online post made by one of the victims of the floods.

"Waking up to more news about the floods back home. The water in Taman Sri Muda continue to rise. Keeping myself updated online, I feel so helpless and angry that a lot of flood victims have waited hours for help to come," she wrote.

Yuna also expressed her frustration by how unprepared the whole country was despite the floods getting worse every year.

"Look at the level of this water!" she wrote, referring to the photo in which the flood water is nearly reaching the second floor of a neighbourhood in Taman Sri Muda. "Why won't the leaders take climate change seriously?"

It is noted that nearly 30,000 people have been evacuated from their homes since 18 December as Malaysia battled one of the worst flooding in years.
