Flood Victims Condition and Quality of Life. A Case Study of Temporary Flood Transfer Centers (TFTCs) in the East Coast Region of Malaysia
Results from previous studies found that the low of quality of life (QoL) in the temporary flood transfer centers
(TFTCs) exists due to inadequate of food supply, no understanding between evacuees, the congestion of TFTCs, and the
unsuitable and insufficient equipment used. Besides that, the flood victims are also exposing to dangerous diseases cause by
water pollution. Consequently by stress these scenarios, this aim of this study to investigate the role of flood victim condition
as a Moderator Variables towards their QoL at TFTC. Results indicate that flood victim’s conditions plays significant impact
to total variance in QoL. This research was conducted in 21 TFTCs at East Coast Region of Malaysia during flood events at end
2016 until early 2017. This study uses quantitative and qualitative approaches by collecting literature relating directly and
indirectly with the QoL of flood victims. Data will analyses using IBM SPSS Statistics and IBM SPSS AMOS in order to run
