To show its support to the front liners working tirelessly in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, Shell Malaysia has devised several outreach initiatives to reduce the burden of these national heroes.
Care packages containing hand sanitizers, mineral water, food and beverages, among other essential items were contributed to the medical frontliners at Hospital Sungai Buloh, Hospital Kuala Lumpur, and Hospital Permaisuri Bainun in Ipoh.
Additionally, Shell stations across the country have also been contributing to the local communities and front liners in the form of supplying electricity for lamps and fans in the temporary tents, as well as contributing foods and drinks to the local authorities stationed nearby.
Shell Malaysia Managing Director, Shairan Huzaini Husain said, “Shell is committed to the well-being of the communities where we operate, and we want to do everything we can to help our front liners in the fight against this global pandemic.
“We recognise the challenges faced by these brave Malaysians and we hope these care packages, made up of essential items will give our front liners some needed support,” he added.
Shairan also adds that Shell’s own front liners at the petrol stations are on the ground everyday to assist in their customers’ needs, and most importantly help the other front liners to get to work; petrol stations are classified as an essential service during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period.
“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.”
Aside from care packages, Shell Malaysia has also partnered with BonusLink to enable customers to contribute and show their gratitude to the front liners by donating their BonusLink points directly to the COVID-19 Fund.
For every 100 points (worth RM1) donated during the campaign period which ended yesterday, Shell Malaysia has also matched in donation to the equivalent value of RM1. The funds in the COVID-19 Fund will be used to in purchasing essential medical equipment for the hospitals.
