PETALING JAYA: The country’s Covid-19 testing capacity has received a boost with Amway (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd donating RM156,000 for the purchase of 3,354 test kits for the University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC).

Amway Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei managing director Mike Duong said the firm was proud of its Amway Business Owners (ABOs) and workers’ passion to lend a helping hand.

He said Amway was honoured to contribute to the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We felt a strong sense of duty to give back to Malaysians who have supported our growth throughout the years.

“In the spirit of solidarity, we have mobilised our ABOs and employees to assist healthcare professionals at UMMC who have worked tirelessly around the clock to safeguard public health and safety since the Covid-19 outbreak in Malaysia,” he said in a statement yesterday.

The contribution is part of Amway Malaysia’s “Let’s Fight Covid-19 Together” donation campaign from April 20 to May 31 which encourages ABOs and employees to donate to the cause.

Duong handed over a mock cheque for RM156,000, which was the first 10 days’ collection, to UMMC director Prof Dr Tunku Kamarul Zaman Tunku Zainol Abidin recently.

Prof Tunku Kamarul commended Amway Malaysia for its contribution, saying that it would help the hospital fast-track testing and facilitate the management of the pandemic.

“Amway Malaysia’s timely contribution enables us to scale up our testing capability while demonstrating strong and compassionate corporate citizenry to all,” he said.

Amway Malaysia previously donated 346 atmosphere air purifier units, worth up to RM2mil, to various institutions in the country.
