More than RM30,000 worth of food has been donated by the Suria KLCC Group to the medical frontliners at hospitals in the Klang Valley.
The donation is the third time that Suria KLCC Group is reaching out to frontliners in our public hospitals to bring some relief during the pandemic, and the selection of food and beverage items were carefully thought of to suit the unique requirements of personnel directly battling Covid-19.
“We understand that our frontliners face a host of constraints at the workplace, especially in a hospital setting. These include short break times, lack of space to sit down for a properly cooked meal, as well as the impracticality of having to remove the many layers of PPEs to eat and then to wear them again. Our donations will attempt to address these unique challenges at their workplace,” said Andrew Brien, CEO for Suria KLCC Sdn Bhd.
“It is this spirit to serve that we wish to honour in our small, but hopefully meaningful way,” added Brien, as the mall presented an assortment of tea-time snacks and drinks to Hospital Sungai Buloh on 3 March 2021.
The food delivered included packets of coffee, Milo, tea as well as assorment of biscuits and cup noodles worth RM15,000, all for the benefit of the 3,500 medical frontliners (doctors, nurses and support staff) of Hospital Sungai Buloh, one of the busiest hospitals at the forefront of the fight against Covid-19.
“The contribution is part of Suria KLCC’s CSR efforts in helping Hospital Sungai Buloh, whereby these items are highly sought after by the medical frontliners. These items are easy to consume yet can be stored safely without any need for refrigeration, thus ensuring the safety and convenience go hand in hand,” added Brien.
The donation from Suria KLCC was presented by the mall’s General Manager, Ben Chong, to Dr. Kuldip Kaur, Director of Hospital Sungai Buloh.
“We are immensely grateful to Suria KLCC for remembering us during this difficult period. This donation is appreciated as I also understand that everyone out there is also facing their own difficulties,” said Dr. Kuldip Kaur.
Alamanda Shopping Centre
On 11 February this year, Alamanda Shopping Centre, led by its General Manager, Ameer Thajudeen, presented RM10,000 worth of food supplies to Hospital Putrajaya, represented by its Director, Datuk Dr. Nora’i Mohd Said, to honour them for their sacrifices and dedication. This is the second time that Alamanda is donating food to this hospital. Last year, Alamanda contributed RM10,000 worth of food items to Hospital Putrajaya.
“On behalf of my colleagues, we want to thank Alamanda for its generosity. Located in Putrajaya itself, the mall has indeed lived up to its reputation as being a caring neighbourhood mall, and this is demonstrated in it remembering us as a public hospital in the same neighbourhood,” said Dr. Nora’i.
Brien said, “The Group will embrace the theme that was launched last year, ‘We Are With You’, whereby the group will continue in its ongoing efforts to support the country’s dedicated frontliners.
Even with the availability of vaccines, fighting the pandemic appears to be a rather long journey. In this, we want to affirm our belief in the commitment of our frontliners to walk the extra mile for the country, and our donation is but a token to say that we remember each and every one of you.”
