As the new Malaysian government is still carefully handling the COVID-19 outbreak situation, the government has setup a COVID-19 fund for anyone to donate. Naza Group of Companies has stepped forward to donate RM1.25 million to the fund as a show of support towards nationwide efforts to tackle the COVID-19 outbreak situation.
The cheque was presented to the Prime Minister YAB Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on 30th March at the Prime Minister’s Office, Putrajaya, by SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin, Group Executive Chairman & CEO, Naza Corporation Holdings.
SM Nasarudin on commending the Government initiatives currently being undertaken said, “We hope the contribution by Naza Group will help alleviate the plight of those financially impacted by job disruptions and loss of earnings resulting from this global pandemic. We are all thankful for the selfless commitment shown by our medical practitioners, the police and armed forces and other frontliners in helping to manage this situation and keep us safe.”
“Apart from this monetary contribution, Naza Group will actively look at ways we can leverage through our businesses to assist the Ministry of Health in managing this unprecedented crisis. As Malaysians we must come together during this critical period to overcome the adversities that lie ahead,” added SM Nasarudin.
