KUALA LUMPUR, 25 March 2020 – In our solidarity with the Government to fight against Covid-19 outbreak, Yayasan MRCB is joining hands together with other Government-Linked Companies (GLCs) and Government-Linked Investment Companies (GLICs) under the GLC and GLIC Disaster Response Network (GDRN) to provide the necessary support to the Ministry of Health (MOH) in this time of need.
To this end, Yayasan MRCB will be channelling RM400,000 to the GDRN. The allocation will be primarily focused on the provision of essential and urgent medical supplies which include personal protective equipment (PPE) and ventilators to meet the needs of the MOH, institutional hospitals, and the public.
The GDRN is managed by a joint secretariat led by Yayasan Hasanah, a foundation under Khazanah Nasional Bhd, and Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM). Currently, more than 15 GLCs, GLICs and private sector entities have pledged to support this cause in ensuring our efforts are streamlined and professionally coordinated. The collective total early contributions stand at RM40mil.
Yayasan MRCB is committed to continue our efforts beyond the Movement Control Order (MCO) period to assist the vulnerable and underprivileged communities who have been greatly impacted by the Covid-19 outbreak.
