A NON-GOVERNMENTAL organisation has come forward to help frontliners in battling the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.
Islamic Propagation Society International (IPSI) Malaysia gave Penang Hospital medical personnel equipment such as body temperature scanners, electric water boilers and electric kettles.
Its president Kamarudin Abdullah said the donation signified the appreciation to frontliners who have been toiling hard to curb the pandemic from spreading further.
“We felt that their sacrifices are important and we want to let them know that all their efforts are remembered and appreciated, ” he told reporters when met at Penang Hospital on Tuesday.
Kamarudin said the programme was held in conjunction with Prophet Muhammad’s birthday that falls on the month of Rabi’ulawal (Oct 18 - Nov 16).
“Although the donation is not much, it is sufficient for the hospital personnel to use.
“We plan to donate more equipment and items that are needed by the frontliners in future, ” he said.
Present during the handover was Penang Hospital deputy director (operation) Wong Cheng Yew, who represented the hospital to receive the items donated.
Kamarudin pointed out that the organisation’s mission is to share the love of Prophet Muhammad to all frontliners regardless of race and religion.
IPSI Malaysia is a Penang-based non-governmental and non-political organisation.
Its primary concern is to disseminate the word of Allah (God) via the sincere promotion of reading, understanding and practising of the Qur’an and As-Sunnah.
It devotes its activities in reminding mankind of fitrah.
