Clean energy specialist, Solarvest Holdings Berhad donated fifteen units of patient monitors worth RM120,000 to Hospital Sultan Abdul Halim (HSAH) in Sungai Petani, Kedah as part of the Group’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts.
The initiative came in light of the surge in daily COVID-19 cases in Malaysia due to the emergence of the Delta variant. The signal of distress from HSAH was brought to the Group’s attention by a medical equipment supplier, Medants Technology Sdn Bhd. As a result, the Group has responded to the need of HSAH, one of the admitting and treating hospitals for COVID-19 in the country during this difficult period.
Group Chief Executive Officer of Solarvest, Mr. Davis Chong Chun Shiong said, “There is no question that the COVID-19 pandemic has grown in severity over the recent months. It is becoming ever more important for us to come together as a nation to fight against the pandemic. We believe there is an urgent need to extend our support to the frontliners in order for us to overcome this latest wave.”
“We heard about the situation at HSAH where they are fast approaching full capacity. Thus, we wanted to make sure that they are supported with the necessary medical equipment. We hope that our modest contribution will help aid the hospital in providing treatments to more patients moving forward.”
“Prior to this, we have also donated medical gloves and PPE isolation gowns to various organisations. True to Solarvest’s culture of “We Care, We Share”, we will continue to intensify our efforts to assist wherever feasible and positively contribute to the local communities where we operate.”
A spokesperson from HSAH commented, “This is indeed a timely contribution by Solarvest. We are grateful that they have responded swiftly after hearing about our problem. The increased bed capacity with proper medical equipment will be immensely helpful in our battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. As we all know by now, it is hard to predict the trajectory of this virus. Hence, we need to ensure we are well-equipped with the necessary resources to handle the situation. These contributions will allow us to treat more patients with serious conditions and in turn, improve the recovery rate.”
