Procter & Gamble (P&G) in support of the Ministry of Health (MoH) and in partnership with The Lost Food Project, is providing financial support and product donations worth over RM 1 million.
The aid aims to help select hospitals in buying medical supplies and benefit relief organisations in extending support to the B40 communities through product donations.
P&G personal care products, valued at over RM100,000 will be contributed to 1,000 medical front-liners in the three hospitals to keep them clean and fresh as they dedicate their efforts towards treating Covid-19 cases.
P&G has contributed both cash and personal care products approximately worth RM 500,00 to three major hospitals, namely Sungai Buloh Hospital, Selangor; University of Malaya Medical Center (UMMC), Kuala Lumpur and Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
Leroy Seow, country manager, P&G Malaysia, said, “We are grateful to all our medical front-liners who are constantly risking their lives to mitigate the spread of the virus and save lives. With them at the frontline, we are stepping up as a force for good by channeling our efforts in supporting them and the most affected communities, especially the B40 community. We thank the MoH and The Lost Food Project for allowing us to make a difference.”
Commenting on the partnership, Syazwan Rahimy, general manager of The Lost Project says, “We are genuinely pleased to have the ongoing support of such a renowned partner as P&G in our effort to alleviate the burden of the B40 community, especially at a time when they need it the most. The personal and household P&G products that we have received and distributed, provides our beneficiaries with greater comfort when health and hygiene is of utmost concern to many.”
