IJM donates 42 hospital beds to two hospitals in Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur, 9 August 2021 – As Covid-19 cases continue to surge in the Klang Valley, IJM Corporation Berhad (“IJM”) recently donated 42 hospital beds to Hospital Rehabilitasi Cheras and Hospital Kuala Lumpur where the beds were critically needed to treat Covid-19 patients.
“We hope that the contributions will help ease the demand for hospital beds as these hospitals reaches full capacity and increasing pressure is being placed on medical frontliners. The donations are part of IJM’s effort to provide essential medical equipment support at this challenging time,” said Mr. Liew Hau Seng, CEO & Managing Director, IJM Corporation Berhad.
Twenty beds were delivered to Hospital Rehabilitasi Cheras while another 22 beds were placed at Hospital Kuala Lumpur.
The hospital beds donation is an initiative under IJM’s Covid-19 community relief efforts in the area of medical support. Under this area of focus, IJM has contributed funds and medical supplies and equipment to communities, medical relief foundations and critical services to give frontliners the protection and resources they need to help fight the Covid-10 pandemic.
“IJM has been stepping forward to ensure that our communities are supported. Across our business divisions, we are each doing our part to help those who are most impacted by the pandemic, including our operations in India,” added Mr Liew.
At the peak of the Covid-19 crisis in India, IJM India donated 20 oxygen concentrators to two emergency Covid-19 care centres in Hyderabad and Nagpur. The treatment for the Delta variant of Covid-19 during the second wave of the pandemic saw an increased demand for medical-grade oxygen. The contribution of oxygen concentrators to these emergency care centres, which provide free medical treatment to the needy, was critical to saving lives during the crisis.
Last month, IJM also launched a Covid-19 vaccination programme for its employees, families and supply chain where more than one thousand vaccine recipients received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. Through this initiative, IJM was able to also sponsor 200 vaccination slots for the community.
