PETRONAS, through its CSR arm Yayasan PETRONAS, is contributing RM20 million worth of medical equipment and supplies to help hospitals and healthcare front-liners mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Malaysia.
The contribution will be carried out in stages, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health (MoH) and the National Disaster Management Agency (NADMA).
MoH and NADMA will be channelling the critical medical equipment and supplies, including ventilators, hospital beds and mattresses, thermal imaging cameras, digital thermometers, virus test kits, masks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to gazetted hospitals for COVID-19 and quarantine centres. Hand sanitisers will also be provided to senior citizens at selected homes.
CEO of Yayasan PETRONAS, Lita Osman said: “We are truly grateful to every single health worker and enforcement personnel who are working hard to stop the spread of COVID-19. They need all the help they can get, particularly as there are more than a thousand patients currently in treatment.
“Together, Yayasan PETRONAS is working with the government agencies to provide support at a time when the community needs it most. Our effort also reflects PETRONAS’ commitment towards improving the wellbeing of society,” she added.
