Penang CRSM hands over medical and sanitisation supplies to state hospitals

GEORGE TOWN: As part of its ongoing effort to help government hospitals here battle Covid-19, the Penang Crisis Relief Squad of MCA (CRSM) has stepped up to provide them with basic supplies.

The six government hospitals in the state that have become designated Covid-19 hospitals received RM4,000 worth of medical and sanitising supplies each.

Penang CRSM and MCA Youth handed over the supplies, collected by a collaborative campaign between them, to each hospital recently.

Penang CRSM leader Edmond Mah and other state MCA representatives came together on Friday (Sept 24) to distribute the items to the hospitals: Penang Hospital, Balik Pulau Hospital, Seberang Jaya Hospital, Bukit Mertajam Hospital, Kepala Batas Hospital and Sungai Bakap Hospital.

Mah said each hospital received three boxes of face masks, one box of personal protective equipment, 10 boxes of chocolate, two nano spray guns, three handwash containers (20 litres each), four sanitiser containers (also 20 litres each) and five sanitiser containers (five litres each).

"Our CRSM headquarters has been in touch with hospitals treating Covid-19 patients all over Malaysia since the beginning of the pandemic.

"We have been collecting medical supplies through our GoCare crowdfunding initiative.

"It has been well received and we have constant support from the public," he said.

Mah said families dealing with financial difficulties may also contact CRSM via Facebook and it would respond with supplies.

"We will continue to collect funding under CRSM and GoCare in every state.

"We urge those who can extend their help to visit the websites and help out," he said.

GoCare Donation Crowd Funding is an initiative by CRSM to help underprivileged individuals and groups through charity fundraising from the public.
