MIRI, Nov 17: Dayang Enterprise Sdn Bhd (DESB) donated 20 units of hospital beddings, double fowler beds with side rails and PVC mattresses to Miri Hospital to support the Sarawak government in its fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

DESB’s deputy chairman, Datuk James Ling Suk Kiong described the contribution as a meaningful event and the company’s way of giving back to the community.

“To be able to support Miri Hospital is an honour, and each and every one of us must play our role in building a healthier community,” said Ling.

Present to receive the contribution was Miri Divisional Disaster Management Committee minister-in-charge Datuk Sri Lee Kim Shin cum caretaker Minister of Transport Sarawak.

The beds were delivered to Miri Hospital after the presentation at Dayang Enterprise office in King’s Park.

Ling added, that this contribution was a gesture of appreciation to Lee, the State Disaster Management Committee and Miri Hospital upon the successful repatriations of two batches of Dayang crew members from Kota Kinabalu to Miri on Aug 28 and Sept 8 this year.

“We would like to express our profound gratitude to you and your team in ensuring the safe return of 172 of our Sarawakian crew members for mass vaccination and to be reunited with their loved ones.

“Without the leadership, dedicated efforts and commitment from your team, this would not have been possible. We are also very grateful for the prompt assistance and guidance from Datu Ik Pahon Joyik, Datu Buckland Bangik, Melissa Labut and Dr P. Raviwharmman A/L Packierisamy to make our crew repatriation successful. All the crew members have also completed their full vaccination in early October,” Ling said.
