KUALA LUMPUR, March 25 -- Bank Rakyat is providing assistance in the form of food purchases and basic necessities to COVID-19 frontliners in five hospitals nationwide.
Its chief executive officer Datuk Rosman Mohamed in a statement today said the initiative had been implemented since March 20 as a token of appreciation to those who have been working hard to provide services to curb the spread of COVID-19.
“Donations have been made to Sarawak General Hospital, Kuala Lumpur Hospital, Sultanah Aminah Hospital in Johor, Sungai Buloh Hospital in Selangor and Queen Elizabeth 1 Hospital in Sabah,” he said.
He added that Bank Rakyat through Surau Al-Barakah also donated RM100,000 in charity donations to 10 public universities to help provide food to stranded students affected by the outbreak.
Jumping on the bandwagon is Spritzer Bhd (Spritzer). The company has been supplying free bottled water nationwide to rehydrate frontliners on duty as a show of support in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Spritzer in a statement today said the containers of bottled water have been delivered and collected by hospitals as well as police stations nationwide.
“Spritzer is truly grateful to every single journalist, health worker and enforcement personnel who are working tirelessly in the fight against COVID-19. Words cannot express out gratitude,” said Spritzer.
Since February, Spritzer started contributing its mineral water to the Air Disaster Unit (ADU), Home Surveillance Centre under National Disaster Management Agency (NADMA) Malaysia.
