KUALA LUMPUR: Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the nation’s frontliners have been working tirelessly to curb the spread. In showing appreciation for these heroes, Glomac recently pledged its support by providing over 3,000 food packs consisting of energy bars and drinks, bread loaves and fruits to the doctors, nurses and other health workers, and police personnel.
Glomac operations chief operating officer Zulkifly Garib said the food packs were delivered to 14 hospitals and district police headquarters (IPDs).
Among the benefiting hospitals were Hospital Putrajaya, Hospital Sungai Buloh, Hospital Serdang, National Cancer Institute, Assunta Hospital, Hospital Temenggong Seri Maharaja Tun Ibrahim, University of Malaya Medical Centre, Hospital Kota Tinggi and Hospital UiTM. IPDs in Sungai Buloh, Shah Alam, Kulai and Brickfields also received the food packs.
“We hope this small but meaningful gesture will go a long way towards encouraging our frontliners to persevere in their dedication. To all others, do our part in helping to stop the spread of this pandemic by staying at home, staying safe and complying with the set standard operating procedures of the Movement Control Order and National Recovery Plan,” he added.
Recently, Glomac contributed RM10,000 towards assisting some 8,200 needy households in the Layang-Layang district of Johor badly affected by the Covid-19 nationwide lockdown with basic food necessities. It also supported and contributed to worthy causes and charity organisations like Rumah Aman Children’s home.
