OKI Data (S) Pte Ltd Malaysia Branch Office has given its support in the fight against the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak within the country by contributing medical aids to one of its major customers, Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM).
On March 25, and in conjunction with the 213th Royal Malaysia Police Day, OKI delivered medical aids to
Ibu Pejabat Polis Diraja Malaysia at Bukit Aman in Kuala Lumpur.
On the same day, the Malaysian Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, announced an extension to the country’s existing Movement Control Order (MCO) by two weeks until April 14 to contain the spread of COVID-19. This meant police officers would require even more medical aids during this period and hence OKI’s sponsorship support had come just at the right time.
Earlier on March 23, medical aids sponsored by OKI were also delivered to one of PDRM’s branch offices, Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen (IPK) Negeri Melaka, with the transport assistance of one of OKI’s authorised distributors, Tricomas Marketing Sdn Bhd.
Overall, this sponsorship project is one of OKI’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives taken to support frontline police officers who conduct their daily inspection and road block operations during the enforcement of the 28-days MCO currently imposed in Malaysia.
The sponsored medical supplies comprised boxes of surgical masks, hand sanitisers and thermometers.
“Our police officers have done a great job in the implementation of the Movement Control Order, we should all show them our respect and be grateful for their efforts in protecting our social welfare and helping to reduce the spread of the pandemic,” says Goh Yin Hwang, Country Manager of OKI Malaysia.
On a related note, with the help from IPK Negeri Melaka, OKI has contributed some of the sponsored items to
Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) Melaka; the organisation also plays a vital role as front-liners by providing up-
to-date TV news reports to the public.
“As responsible individuals, we should all play our part in supporting the Malaysian government’s initiatives as
we overcome this challenging period hand-in-hand,” said Goh in a separate statement.
