PETALING JAYA (July 22): Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic last year, Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association (REHDA) and its various state branches in Peninsular Malaysia have in total donated close to RM1.25 million in the form of cash, food aid as well as critical equipment to assist hospitals and frontliners.
In a media statement today, REHDA said REHDA Selangor, REHDA Wilayah Persekutuan (Kuala Lumpur) and REHDA Youth have donated medical equipment to five hospitals in the Klang Valley.
These hospitals are Hospital Ampang, Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Hospital Selayang, Hospital Sungai Buloh and Hospital Perubatan Universiti Malaya. They will be receiving various medical equipment such as ventilators, Infusomats, perfusion pumps, cardiac monitors, defibrillators, nasal cannula as well as essential items such as PPE sets, face masks and sanitisers.
“This current challenging time affects all Malaysians in a myriad of ways, especially hospitals and healthcare personnel standing at the forefront of this pandemic, and the donation is the least the association can do to help the frontliners weather this turbulent storm.
“It is our duty as Malaysians to look out after the wellbeing of our beloved nation by assisting our healthcare institutions and frontliners the best that we can, so that they in turn will be able to provide optimal care to all the affected patients,” said REHDA president Datuk Soam Heng Choon.
The first recipient of their contributions in the Klang Valley was Hospital Sungai Buloh, who received 3 units of Dräger ventilators and 50 units of hospital ward screens from REHDA deputy president Datuk N K Tong.
Meanwhile, Hospital Selayang today received their critical equipment from REHDA Selangor chairman Datuk Ho Hon Sang while contributions to the other aforementioned hospitals will be made throughout this week and the next.
