6 April, KUALA LUMPUR – Property developer, Mah Sing Group Berhad (Mah Sing), together with its corporate responsibility arm, Mah Sing Foundation (MSF) has donated 30,000 pieces of face masks today to the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (KPKT).
The face masks will be distributed to KPKT in support of the Ministry’s on-going efforts to mitigate the outbreak of Covid-10 through the Public Sanitisation Exercise at hotspot locations in the red and orange zones nationwide particularly the People’s Housing Programme (PPR) located in red zone areas.
Mah Sing’s Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Ho Hon Sang presented the donation to KPKT Minister, Yang Berhormat (YB) Puan Hajah Zuraida Kamaruddin at presentation ceremony held at the Ministry’s office in Putrajaya today.
Mah Sing’s Founder and Group Managing Director, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum said “We appreciate KPKT’s Public Sanitisation Exercise to ensure the level of cleanliness of the community across various different segments is well taken care of in respect of the current Movement Control Order. We truly appreciate the KPKT front liners’ dedication to provide this service for the Rakyat during this challenging period. The 30,000 pieces of face masks contribution to KPKT is to support the Ministry’s on-going efforts to mitigate the spread and impact of Covid-19. We will continue to play an active role as a responsible corporate citizen in supporting the government to contain this pandemic and to keep all of us safe.”
“We laud the government’s move to introduce the RM10billion Prihatin Stimulus Package for SMEs as this will certainly ease their financial burden – ensuring the SMEs continue to support the corporate and economy of the country. We hope this will boost the SMEs and cushion the impact on the economy, creating a healthy balance among the business entities, preserving jobs and enabling the economy to continue to function,” Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum elaborated.
Together with MSF, Mah Sing has presented a pledge of 20 units of heavy duty critical-care ventilators worth RM3.9million for National Disaster Management Agency (NADMA), to front line hospitals in need. This is part of the Group’s RM4.175million pledge in support of the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, which includes Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for Johor government front liners, whilst 150,000 face masks have been allocated for five government agencies.
