Malaysian Red Crescent (MRCS) Sibu branch in Sarawak has made it easier for the public to send cash donations.

It has launched DuitNow and SPay Global QR codes, so donors can scan the codes to send their contributions.

MRCS Sibu chairman Penghulu Chua Hiong Kee said the QR codes were a convenient way for the public to support fundraising projects.

“By scanning the QR codes with your smartphone, you can easily make donations quickly and securely anytime and from anywhere in the country.

“Your generous donations will make a profound difference in ensuring we can respond swiftly to those in need.

“We rely on the kindness and generosity of individuals like you to sustain our efforts and extend our reach.

“Every contribution, no matter the amount, plays a vital role in our ability to serve and support those who need it most,” he said.

At the World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day celebration held at its premises, he said public support was vital for the organisation to continue its humanitarian services.

Chua said MRCS Sibu had also received a new ambulance as a gift in conjunction with the celebration and thanked the donors for their support.

“With this new ambulance, it will significantly improve our ability to serve the community and ensure we can reach those in distress swiftly and efficiently,” he said.

Among those present at the celebration were Sibu MP Oscar Ling, Dewan Rakyat Deputy Speaker Alice Lau and Bukit Assek assemblyman Joseph Chieng. — By ANDY CHUA
