Donations will go towards urgent medical supplies and aid for marginalised communities ravaged by the Covid-19 pandemic

Mercy Malaysia

Mercy Malaysia's Covid-19 Pandemic Fund will be used to carry out the NGO's strategic preparedness and response plan, dedicated to supporting medical services and meeting the needs of marginalised groups in Malaysia. The organisation announced that it would also mobilise funding to assist the health ministry to conduct a vaccination outreach programme next month with the aim of helping homeless individuals, people with disabilities and anyone whose health problems prevent them from going to vaccination centres, starting in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.             

Mercy Malaysia works closely with the National Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC) Disease Control Division to distribute the necessary aid and supplies.
