SGH receives food bags from Yadim


KUCHING: Yayasan Dakwah Islamiah Malaysia (Yadim) contributed 300 bags of food items to Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) on Sunday (July 11) to be distributed to Covid-19 patients and health workers.

Together with the contribution, Yadim also donated 30 LED emergency lights for SGH and Low-risk treatment and Quarantine Centre for Covid-19 (PKRC) at the Youth and Sports Complex.

Director of Yadim Sarawak, Awang Dulhadi Awang Mat said the contribution was one of Yadim’s initiatives in the Musaadah Covid-19 3.0 programme which was earlier launched by the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Senator Datuk Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakr.

He stated that this is not the first time they have organised such a contribution, as Yadim Sarawak provided 50 cartons of drinking water to the hospital during the first Musaadah Covid-19 programme last year.

Awang Dulhadi said that for this programme, Yadim is targeting to distribute the donation to frontline workers and the community affected by the pandemic.

“This time, we are assisting those affected by Covid-19, including those who are quarantined, the less fortunate, and those who are part of the asnaf group.

“Since last January, Yadim has distributed a total of 918 food assistance to 918 families in Sarawak and this does not include contributions to the flood victims from the recent flood incident.” He said to reporters after handing over the Musaadah Covid-19 3.0 donation in the SGH Day Care Centre building’s lobby today.

The donation was handed over to SGH Public Relations Officer, Sarid Din Kederi.

He added that in June, Yadim has also handed over donations to the PKRC in Lundu District as well as Vaccination Centre (PPVs), namely Bau PPV, Gedong PPV, and Simunjan PPV.

Awang Dulhadi said his team has also set up a helpline throughout the country, including in Sarawak, to assist anyone who is having difficulty and requires basic food assistance during this trying time.

“We will come right to their door and help them. We do not care what religion, race, or ethnicity they belong to.” Awang Dulhadi remarked.

Anyone affected and requires assistance should call their hotline at 013-2920214 and provide information such as their name, identification card number, telephone number and address, number of their dependents, and their condition for the records.
