PUTRAJAYA, May 2 -- Perbadanan Putrajaya (PPj) and Putrajaya Media Club today distributed 370 food packs to firefighters, police personnel and health workers to show their appreciation in conjunction with the Ramadan month.
The programme started as early as 3 am with the distribution of sahur (early dawn) food packs to firefighters and police personnel manning roadblocks.
PPj president Datuk Muhammad Azmi Mohd Zain said it was the first time such a programme was organised with the Putrajaya Media Club to appreciate the sacrifices of the frontliners in protecting the community against the COVID-19 outbreak.
"This programme is to appreciate the services of frontline personnel who are always on duty day and night to ensure the COVID-19 pandemic can be controlled and curbed," he told reporters after distributing food packs to health workers at the Putrajaya Hospital, here today.
Also present were PPj senior vice president (Corporate Services), Datuk Azizi Ahmad Termizi and Corporate Communications Division director, Tengku Aina Tengku Ismail Shah.
Meanwhile, Putrajaya district police chief ACP Mohd Fadzil Ali thanked PPj and the Putrajaya Media Club for their concern by going down to the field to see the real situation of policemen on duty, adding that the programme would further raise the morale of those working in the field.
Putrajaya Hospital deputy director (Management), Nur Hazwani Rabuan, said the donation of the food packs would raise the spirits of health workers in the face of a challenging situation.
