EMPLOYEES working for a Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd subsidiary have donated RM25,000 of their salary to Mercy Malaysia’s Covid-19 Pandemic Fund.

The fund aims to support Malaysia’s healthcare system by contributing towards medical services and essential needs of marginalised groups.

The donation drive saw employees of E&P O&M Services Sdn Bhd (Epoms) contributing a portion of their June 2020 salary via automatic deduction.

Mercy Malaysia’s fund not only focuses on medical aid but also supports marginalised groups living in poor conditions, the elderly, refugees, stateless children, persons with disability and those with low or no access to health information and services.

This initiative complements the Petronas Group’s donation drive in April, which collected a total of RM6.4mil from employees’ voluntary salary contribution for Covid-19 Fund under the National Disaster Management Agency.

Epoms managing director and chief executive officer Anuar Abdul Rahman said, “We must face this unprecedented battle against Covid-19 together, as this pandemic has impacted not just the economy but also people, especially the less fortunate.

“I hope our contribution will help relieve the pressure faced by marginalised groups impacted by Covid-19.”

Epoms supported Mercy Malaysia through its strategic preparedness and response plan — a continuous cycle of disaster risk management that focuses on emergency response, recovery, prevention/mitigation and preparedness/ readiness.
