Kuala Lumpur, 12 August 2021 – MITSUBISHI MOTORS MALAYSIA (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, is stepping up to the plate again to do its part to support various COVID-19 aid efforts as Malaysia continues its fight against the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company today loaned three Mitsubishi vehicles and donated RM20, 000 to Mercy Malaysia to purchase 400 units of Tyvek suites for frontliners which was distributed to three COVID-19 Assessment Centres (CAC) in Stadium Melawati, Stadium Jugra, and Klinik Kesihatan Gombak Setia. Mitsubishi Motors also purchased RM43, 000 worth of items needed for a CAC in Hulu Langat.
As Malaysia is still on the brink of COVID-19 infections, Mitsubishi Motors wants to play a role in flattening the nation’s curve by working together with Mercy Malaysia. Loaning a Triton pick-up truck and two Outlander seven-seater SUVs will provide transportation support to frontliners to commute to vaccination centers (PPV) for the public outreach vaccination program.
On the other hand, the financial contribution will assist the health workers further in conducting extensive screening on possible virus carriers, contract tracing, isolating the infected, and dispensing care to those who need it.
Mitsubishi Motors’ other initiatives include contributing essential items needed for a CAC center such as tents, tables, and chairs, portable air-condition units, queue barriers, and heavy-duty wires. At the CAC, COVID-19 patients will be accessed before they are sent to hospitals, quarantine at treatment centers, or ordered to undergo quarantine at home. The CAC which Mitsubishi Motors is assisting in can accommodate up to 400 patients a day.
“Although our core business is producing cars, we are committed to doing our part in ensuring the country and our customers are kept safe. The recent increase in cases and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to significant emotional stress among the country’s frontliners, particularly healthcare workers in Malaysia. We will continue to communicate closely with key NGOs and public institutions to see how Mitsubishi Motors can continue to contribute. This pandemic is one of the most challenging times we have faced as a nation and thus we must step up and breach the support needed especially now where COVID-19 infections are at their highest. We thank our brave frontliners who worked tirelessly for us all,” said Tomoyuki Shinnishi, Chief Executive Officer of MMM.
