KUALA LUMPUR, July 22 -- The Sports Writers Association of Malaysia (SAM) today contributed 500 pieces of clothing to the Kuala Lumpur One-Stop Funeral Service Centre (PUSUM WPKL).
SAMprihatin bureau chairman Mohd Hazreen Nor Mubarak in a statement said the initiative was a collaboration with clothing manufacturer HakkaClo, which was also concerned with the problems faced by the centre in handling more than 100 bodies every day.
He said a total of 100 staff at the centre needed outdoor clothing to carry out increasingly burdensome tasks during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This is one of SAM's social responsibilities through the SAMprihatin bureau, and we will do our best to help out.
“SAM would like to thank HakkaClo for coming forward as a sponsor to help PUSUM WPKL. We hope this small contribution can somewhat help the centre overcome the problems it is facing,” said Mohd Hazreen.
Earlier, the contribution was presented to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) deputy director Dr Rusilawati Judin in a ceremony which was also attended by SAM executive council members, led by president Norismadi Abd Manap at the National Sports Institute (ISN) Sports Complex in Jalan Raja Muda Kampung Baru here.
