PETALING JAYA (April 13): S P Setia Bhd through its charity arm, S P Setia Foundation, has donated RM500,000 worth of medical equipment and supplies to Malaysian hospitals and front-liners as the country goes into the fourth week of the Movement Control Order (MCO) which is extended further to April 28.
This is in addition to the previously committed pledge of RM1.0 million to the government-linked companies (GLCs) and government-linked investment companies’ (GLIC) Disaster Response Network (GDRN) Collective Contribution, according to a media statement released by the developer yesterday.
"The GDRN, together with various partners, is working and coordinating together to streamline GLC and GLIC’s support to assist the Ministry of Health (MOH) in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Of the RM51.5 million collected as of April 1, RM42.6 million has been allocated to support the MOH in purchasing medical supplies while RM8.9 million has been earmarked to support families, frontliners and stranded university students with other essential supplies," the statement said.
To date, S P Setia Foundation has delivered a ventilator, patient monitor system and syringe pumps to Hospital Selayang, Selangor. Over 4,300 units of N95 face masks were procured and given to the Hospital Kuala Lumpur and 50 units of aerosol boxes, a protective device when intubating patients, were distributed to various hospitals across Peninsular Malaysia.
Meanwhile, another initiative - Setia’s Food Aid for foreign workers, which according to the developer, will be rolled out as soon as possible.
"S P Setia will continue to expand its humanitarian efforts to help ease those affected by the unforeseen and unexpected hardship following the pandemic," said the developer.
