SELANGOR, 23 February – In efforts to support communities in need and improve their access to healthcare support, S P Setia’s charity arm S P Setia Foundation has provided assistance to three hospitals in the Klang Valley through its ‘Sincerely Setia Healthcare & Well-Being Assistance Programme’.
S P Setia Foundation has contributed funding worth up to a total of RM120,000 to Pusat Perubatan Universiti Malaya/ University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC), Hospital Canselor Tuanku Muhriz (HCTM) and Shah Alam Hospital.
Symbolic cheques presentation together with presentation of wheelchairs were held at S P Setia Corporate HQ today to signify the support and commemorate the launch of the programme.
“While we continue our efforts through the Sincerely, Setia drive to aid Malaysians who are underprivileged and require medical attention, we hope the assistance given to them and their carers through these hospitals will help ease their burden and provide them peace of mind while receiving the treatments they need,” said S P Setia Foundation Chairman Dato’ Zuraidah Atan.
The funding towards UMMC and HCTM will be channelled towards their transit centres to subsidise the costs of accommodation, daily meals and hygiene essentials borne by the patients and their carers or families.
The hospitals will also upgrade the amenities of the transit centre rooms to create a more comfortable environment for the patients and their carers, especially for patients with chronic illnesses who are receiving treatments at the ward and specialist centres.
Part of the funding of ‘Sincerely Setia Healthcare & Well-Being Assistance Programme’ was allocated towards Shah Alam Hospital for the purchase of 21 units of wheelchairs worth RM10,000. These wheelchairs will be given to deserving patients who are recovering from stroke or are recovering from leg or knee surgery but are not able to afford it.
