MONSPACE Multinational Corp has donated another vehicle to St John’s Ambulance Malaysia in a ceremony held in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, to strengthen the non-governmental organisation's (NGO) mobile clinic initiative.

Monspace chief executive officer Datuk Seri Jessy Lai said the company hoped to see more Malaysians getting medical attention.

“The mobile clinic service will be able to reach rural areas and even indigenous communities that often have difficulty accessing clinics and hospitals,” she said.

“I have always paid attention to healthcare provision and medical issues in the country.

“I often visit institutions such as orphanages, old folk’s home and NGOs to understand the pressing issues faced by the nation,” said Lai.

SJAM secretary-general Datuk Yeo Kim Thong said the NGO had been committed to serving the community since its founding in 1908.

“Following the addition of a bariatric ambulance last year to serve obese patients, the mobile clinic is yet another effort to show that we are constantly looking for ways to make life better for all Malaysians,” he added.

The bariatric ambulance was also donated by Monspace.

SJAM Selangor started its mobile clinic services in August last year, providing healthcare to the indigenous community in Semenyih, Selangor.

Besides free healthcare, SJAM also provides food and relief items to help the underserved.

Lai hoped more people would contribute and help make healthcare accessible to all.

“After all, it is a basic and universal right of all humans,” she said.

Guests at the launch included former inspector-general of police Tan Sri Musa Hassan and SJAM chairman Datuk Lai See Ming.
