TWO non-governmental organisations have banded together to provide medical equipment to Hospital Sultanah Aminah (HSA) in Johor Baru.

Suria Johor Baru Foundation founder and secretary James Ho said about RM50,000 worth of such equipment was donated to the hospital to aid it in its battle against Covid-19.

“This year alone, Suria Johor Baru Foundation has provided RM100,000 worth of aid to HSA.

“This time we are collaborating with Pertubuhan Kebajikan Wawasan Johor Baru to donate 200 units of oximeter, 10 beds and three vital sign monitors,” he said after presenting the equipment at the hospital.

Ho said among the items that the foundation had previously donated to the hospital included food for medical frontliners and 10 syringe infusion pumps.

“We hope this equipment will facilitate our frontliners’ efforts to manage their patients here, including those with Covid-19,” he said.

The donated machines and beds are expected to be used in Covid-19 wards.

They were presented to hospital director Dr Mohtar Pungut, who thanked the organisations for their support.

“We are grateful for the overwhelming support and assistance received throughout the pandemic.

“Apart from medical equipment, some have also provided food and drinks to both patients and hospital staff,” he said.

He added that the equipment would also allow the hospital to increase its capacity to attend to both Covid-19 and non-Covid-19 patients.
