FWD Takaful Berhad (“FWD Takaful”) today announced RM5 million special fund, aptly named as MOH FWD MY Heroes Fund.

According to the FWD Takaful,the initiative for the Ministry of Health (MOH) frontliners is in recognition and appreciation of their role in the fight against the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Salim Majid Zain, FWD Takaful’s chief executive officer said, “We wish to express our gratitude to all healthcare frontliners for their admirable sacrifice and patience while putting the patients’ needs first to curb the spread of Covid-19.”

“At FWD Takaful, our vision is to change the way people feel about Takaful and therefore we’re grateful for the opportunity to show our support to fellow MOH frontliners and their immediate family through MOH FWD MY Heroes Fund during this challenging period, especially those working in the frontlines and work effortlessly to provide for a safer Malaysia, as they face a higher risk of exposure to the virus.”

The six months complimentary benefits period starts from April 1 until the special fund is exhausted. All MoH frontliners will be entitled to a compassionate benefit upon death due to Covid-19 or other causes.
