PUTRAJAYA: More corporates have stepped forward with donations to the government’s Covid-19 fund.
They gave cash and medical equipment worth more than RM16mil to aid the fight against the pandemic.
The corporates’ top executives handed over their donations to Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin at his Perdana Putra office here.
The donors are Mah Sing Group (RM3.9mil worth of ventilators), Puncak Niaga Holdings Bhd (RM1mil as well as 28 ventilators and a haemodialysis machine worth RM5mil), Perodua (RM2mil), Naza Corporation Holdings Sdn Bhd (RM1.25mil), RHB Bank (RM1mil), 99 SpeedMart (RM1mil) and Sapura Group (RM1mil).
The government launched the fund last month to help ease the burden of those directly impacted by the coronavirus outbreak.
