MCCC donated 5000 pieces of medical masks to MERCY Malaysia.

(Kuala Lumpur): The Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC), in response to the covid-19 campaign, donated RM 100,000.00 to the Medical Relief Society Malaysia (MERCY Malaysia) for the purchase of 200 personal protective equipment (PPE) to support frontline health care staff.

This is also one of the support actions of the MERCY Malaysia to the Ministry of Health, the National Crisis Preparedness and Response Center (CPRC) and the National Disaster Management Agency (NADMA) during the pandemic.

In a statement issued by MCCC today saying that in addition to the financial support, MCCC has also donated 100 cartons of bleach agent and 5000 pieces of disposable medical masks to MERCY Malaysia.

Seeing the rapid spread of covid-19 and the deficiency of protective supplies, the MCCC held a “MCCC Covid-19: Malaysians We Care” fund-raising initiative among its national council and MCCC members and have raised RM113,500.00.

In addition, Guangzhou Tongyuan Technology Co., Ltd., donated 10,000 pieces of medical masks to MCCC in response to the MCCC donations to various regions of China during the outbreak of coronavirus in January 2020.

Given the high demand of masks for front-line staff, the MCCC donated all 10,000 masks to the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) to support their efforts to combat the epidemic and to thank them for their contribution during this period.

The statement stated that several state administrative branches of MCCC also responded to the chamber’s concern for the front-line movement. The Johor branch donated protective clothing and masks to the Johor Doctors Association, the Penang branch donated masks to the Penang state government, the Perak branch donated masks to the police officers in the Jiulong district of Ipoh, and the Sabah branch donated masks, disinfecting hand fluids, body temperature measuring devices, and protective waterproof clothing and sun-protection rainwear clothing to the State Ministry of Health and People's Welfare, Sabah.
