KUCHING, April 8: Weida Group of Companies has donated over RM1.4 million to aid efforts to counter Covid-19 in Sarawak.

The corporation donated RM1 million to the State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) as well as RM50,000 each to Kuching South City Council (MBKS), Kuching North City Hall (DBKU), Padawan Municipal Council (PMC), Miri City Council (MCC) and Sibu Municipal Council (SMC).

It also contributed RM106,725 worth of medical equipment to Sarawak General Hospital (SGH).

Weida Group, in a media release today, emphasised that it was imperative to maintain a united front in the common fight against this global pandemic which has affected human life, economic growth and businesses.

“It is thus everyone’s responsibility to play their respective roles in both combating the virus itself, and to mitigate the social and economic consequences of this invisible killer.

“This is especially so when such adversity has reached the shores of our beloved Sarawak,” the statement added.

Weida Group also believed that no one should be left behind and thus hopes that SDMC would keep rural communities in mind when utilising the contributions, as these communities would too have been devasted by this pandemic.

“It is also our hope that our small gesture serves as an encouragement to everyone who has been working tirelessly to fight this virus for the sake of our well-being and safety,” it added. — DayakDaily
