RHB Banking Group (“RHB”) continues to provide packed meals to Doctors, Nurses and other healthcare workers at eight hospitals across the country.
Throughout the Movement Control Order (MCO) period, more than 20,000 packed meals and snacks are being delivered for the benefit of about 2,000 frontliners including doctors, nurses and other health workers who are working on different shifts at hospitals that are attending to COVID-19 patients.
RHB has been delivering 450 packed meals daily to six hospitals – Sungai Buloh Hospital, Serdang Hospital, Ampang Hospital, Selayang Hospital, Putrajaya Hospital, and Kuala Lumpur Hospital, since 23 March 2020 and had further increased to eight hospitals in the 3rd phase of MCO with the inclusion of Sultanah Aminah Hospital Johor Bahru and Sarawak General Hospital. Total packed meals delivered daily has also increased to 600, which will continue until the end of the MCO period on 28 April 2020. The deliveries also include snacks such as energy bars and drinks which are also in short supply at the hospitals.
“RHB is continuing to provide packed meals to healthcare professionals and workers throughout the MCO extension until 28 April 2020. For this 3rd phase of MCO, we are providing meals to eight hospitals, which now include Sultanah Aminah Hospital Johor Bahru and Sarawak General Hospital. Apart from ensuring that our healthcare frontliners are being given proper meals daily, we are also able to support small catering businesses and their suppliers, enabling them to continue earning income during the MCO period,” said Dato’ Khairussaleh Ramli, Group Managing Director, RHB Banking Group.
“During the Holy Month of Ramadan, we will include other food items such as bubur lambuk and dates in our deliveries to our frontliners. We feel it is important to keep their morale high, and hope that these ‘must-have’ Ramadan delicacies would keep their spirits high as the fight against the spread of COVID-19 continues,” added Dato’ Khairussaleh.
