AFTER receiving treatment for Covid-19 at the Low-Risk Covid-19 Quarantine and Treatment Centre (PKRC) at Permai Hospital in Johor Baru, former patient Norazreen Ahmad decided to give back to the hospital in the form of donation.
The 38-year-old mother was admitted to the hospital on Sept 10 after testing positive for the virus, along with her two daughters and husband.
Norazreen, who owns the Marrybrown Kip Mall Masai franchise, gave 25 boxes of packed food to the hospital’s doctors and nurses to thank them for taking care of patients like her.
“I was the only person from my family admitted to the hospital, while my 61-year-old husband and two daughters aged six and 11 were home quarantined.
“The doctors and nurses were very kind, attentive and supportive of every patient.
“I wanted to at least give them food as a way of showing my gratitude,” she said when met at the hospital.
She also donated RM2,000 to the hospital.
“The doctors and nurses gave us moral support throughout our recovery period. That left a big impression on me,” said Norazreen.
“Our frontliners have been fighting the pandemic since Day 1. I hope this small gesture will bring them some joy.”
She hoped to continue providing food as a corporate social responsibility effort, not only to frontliners but also to poor families affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
