Malaysia’s frontliners of the COVID-19 pandemic are having a difficult time with not just having to deal with the deadly virus face to face, but also spending some extra time away from their loved ones for the country they love. For that, Shell has offered several methods of support, not only for the frontliners but also the overall effort to fight COVID-19 here in Malaysia.
A series of outreach initiatives were carried out by Shell such as donating essential items such as hand sanitizers, mineral water, food and beverages to Hospital Sungai Buloh, Hospital Kuala Lumpur, and Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun in Ipoh.
Making use of their many petrol stations nationwide, Shell Malaysia also contributed some very much needed items to the local authorities to perform their duties like supplying electricity, lights, fans, temporary tents, as well as food and drinks.
Apart from that, they’ve also partnered up with BonusLink where their members can contribute to the COVID-19 Fund set up by the Ministry of Health Malaysia’s (MOH). Cardholders can donate as low as 100 points (equivalent to RM1) where it’ll help MOH to purchase some critical medical equipment for the frontliners to use. Head over to www.bonuslink.com.my or the BonusLink app to donate.
According to Mr Shairan Huzani Husain, Managing Director of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd, “The act of caring for others, and looking out for each other is essential for all of us as Malaysians to survive, and thrive through these uncertain and certainly testing time. Shell is committed to the well-being of the communities where we operate, and we want to do everything we can to help our frontliners in the fight against this global pandemic. We recognize the challenges faced by these brave Malaysians and we hope these care packages, made up of essential items will give our frontliners some needed support”.
“We also have our very own Shell frontliners who are on the ground, every single day, taking care of our customers’ needs, and ensuring the nation’s heroes can get to work and do what they need to for the safety of every Malaysian. As one of Malaysia’s essential service, we are helping to fuel the nation through the dedication of these very frontliners. We are also ensuring care packages are provided to them as our gesture of thanks for their courage in ensuring Shell stations remain open and ready to continue serving customers. They are all our heroes,” added Mr Shairan.
