Shah Alam, Sunday, 22 March 2020 – The national motorcycle brand, Motosikal dan Enjin Nasional Sdn Bhd (“MODENAS” or “the Company”), a subsidiary of DRB-HICOM Berhad (“DRB-HICOM”), has come out in support of our frontliners, the “unsung heroes” in light of the current coronavirus 2019 disease (“Covid-19”) pandemic. With the operations of MODENAS being in Gurun, Kedah, the Company has decided to focus its initiative towards the Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital in Alor Setar, Kedah.
Trying to do our bit for the community – #MODENASPrihatin
Whilst many able bodied individuals and NGO’s are focusing on hospitals around Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, MODENAS having its operations in Gurun, Kedah has set out on a race for humanity to help ease the burden and bringing comfort to the frontliners who are working tirelessly in battling the Covid-19 pandemic in the Northern region of the country.
As the number of positive cases arises, these frontliners are required to remain emotionally and mentally preserved, as they are continuously committed in the fight against the spread of Covid-19 despite the shortage of nurses and doctors that was already plaguing hospital long before the outbreak.
Roslan Roskan, Chief Executive Officer – “A little goes a long way”
Today, MODENAS as a company and its employees via a quick donation drive have successfully raised and donated essential items as urgently required by the hospital such as industrial fans, electrical kettles as well as bottled water in hopes to spark a little bit of joy and comfort to hospital staff whose health and lives are also put at risk while treating the Covid-19 patients.
“A very small gesture to the doctors, nurses, health workers, volunteers, medical professionals and not forgetting the security guards, which without them, the livelihood of our country as we know it would grind almost to a halt. With them, some sense in preserving normalcy in our country during these difficult times is made possible,” ended Roslan. #MODENASPrihatin
