Port gives RM48,000 to four government hospitals

PENANG Port Commission (PPC) has donated RM48,000 to four government hospitals in Penang.

Hospital Penang and the other government hospitals in Kepala Batas, Bukit Mertajam and Seberang Jaya each received RM12,000.

PPC chairman Datuk Tan Teik Cheng said the donations were excess funds raised by PPC’s transport sector Covid-19 vaccination centre that operated from Aug 3 to Sept 20 last year.

“The centre charged 5,434 frontliners working at the port RM60 each for the vaccine.

“The vaccination exercise went smoothly and we decided that it was socially responsible to donate the leftover amount to the hospitals,” he added.

Tan said PPC held medical frontliners in high regard for their valuable contributions to society.

He hoped the donations would help the hospitals obtain medical supplies to enhance their service.

Tan presented the donations to representatives from the hospitals recently.
