“RHB is continuing to provide packed meals to healthcare professionals and workers throughout the MCO extension until April 28. For this 3 rd phase of MCO, we are providing meals to eight hospitals, which now include Sultanah Aminah Hospital Johor Bahru and Sarawak General Hospital.
“Apart from ensuring that our healthcare frontliners are being given proper meals daily, we are also able to support small catering businesses and their suppliers, enabling them to continue earning income during the MCO period,” said Khairussaleh Ramli, group managing director, RHB Banking Group.
“During the Holy Month of Ramadan, we will include other food items such as bubur lambuk and dates in our deliveries to our frontliners. We feel it is important to keep their morale high, and hope that these ‘must-have’ Ramadan delicacies would keep their spirits high as the fight against the
spread of Covid-19 continues,” added Khairussaleh.
RHB Banking Group has thus far pledged a total of RM3 million to assist in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
