Celcom Axiata Bhd continues to keep the nation’s frontline heroes close to its heart and reaches out to the brave Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) and their families with multiple support and reliefs.
Celcom honoured the Malaysian Defence frontliners with special food and digital reliefs worth RM100,000, easing the burdens of the nation’s esteemed armed forces.
Idham Nawawi, CEO of Celcom Axiata says Malaysia’s defence force is the pillar of national security and plays a major role in keeping Malaysia safe during these challenging times.
“While the nation’s military frontliners are doing their part in keeping us safe, Celcom reaches out to them and their families with digital and connectivity reliefs. We want to honour and appreciate our fellow Malaysians in the armed forces for their great sacrifice in protecting the nation, keeping Malaysians safe,” he adds.
The food relief are to be distributed at defense bases such as Mentakab in Pahang, Gong Badak in Terengganu, Sepanggar in Sabah, as well as Markas Medan Barat, Sg. Besi, and the National Defence University of Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur.
Children of armed forces personnel also received refurbished laptops and tablets via the MyBaikHati programme for home-based learning.
Celcom has initiated immediate network quality and coverage enhancement works at more than 1,500 vaccination centres (PPVs) nationwide.
Celcom ensures continuous connectivity throughout these PPV centres, for both front liners and vaccine recipients, including hospitals and quarantine centres, as connectivity remains a crucial need for all operations to run smoothly.
In addition, Celcom is also assisting the Greater Klang Valley Special Task Force, University Malaya Medical Centre, CPRC Putrajaya and CAC Gombak in managing high numbers of COVID-19 cases within Klang Valley through communication relief of 100 smartphones, Celcom Home Wireless, laptops and prepaid SIM packs.
“Celcom values the relentless efforts by our frontliners in ensuring the safety and recovery of our nation from the pandemic. At times like these, we strongly believe that it is our duty to support our heroes through multiple initiatives and extend their communication avenue,” Idham said
Together with the Malaysian Relief Agency (MRA), Celcom has distributed over 15,000 food relief to families and students within the B40 communities nationwide, who were affected by the pandemic, as well as natural disasters.
