MRC PENANG FLAG DAY 2015

Monday, March 16th, 2015

The MRC Penang Branch will be having its Annual Flag Day 2015 on Saturday, 28 March 28, 2015 and Sunday March 29, 2015.  During the two days Malaysian Red Crescent Youth and Adult members will take to the streets with their Flag Day tins to seek funds from generous members of the public for our Humanitarian Projects & Activities.  MRC Penang hopes to raise RM 150,000 through this Project.  Therefore any amount of donation is welcome.

Every Red Crescent member has the ultimate goal to alleviate human suffering, and we serve without thinking of the creed, race, colour or gender of those who need our help.  To us, they are people who have placed their hopes in our hands.

To be able to respond efficiently and effectively, our Red Crescent members need to be trained. Their first aid and rescue skills have to be constantly upgraded and updated.  Hence, we are always in need of funds to train our members, to upgrade our ambulances and rescue vehicles and equipments. Part of the funds raised will also be used to finance the three 12-hour Ambulance Service Centres based in Permatang Tinggi (Seberang Perai Tengah); Butterworth (Seberang Perai Utara); and Batu Maung (on Penang Island). So the Flag Day is an important component of the MRC annual fund-raising projects.

As the Flag Day Project Organising Chairman, I appeal to members of the public to step forward and donate generously for the MRC Penang humanitarian cause.

RM100K target set for Flag Day 2009

Friday, March 20th, 2009

The annual Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) Penang branch Flag Day will be held on Sunday 22 March 2009. So, Penangites, be ready with some loose change and be generous to the MRCS members approaching you with their donation tins. The society is aiming to raise RM100,000 or more this Flag Day when its members once again take to the streets of Penang to collect donations from the public.

Organising chairman and MRCS Penang branch vice-chairman Chan Hon Kwong said the society managed to collect almost RM100,000 last year and he was confident that they would reach the RM100,000 target this time. “We believe, to many, RM1 or RM2 is not much. We have a good feeling we can reach our target,” he told reporters at the MRCS Penang branch headquarters at Jalan Grove on Tuesday after the launching of the event by state Health, Welfare, Caring Society and Environment Committee Chairman Phee Boon Poh.

Donate generously to MRCS, public urged

Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

MALAYSIAN Red Crescent Society (MRCS) members will hit the streets of Penang this weekend to seek donations in conjunction with the society’s annual Flag Day.

MRCS Penang branch chairman Saw Ewe Yong said the branch had targeted a collection of RM100,000 this year to cover its expenses. Last year, the expenditure for our activities and operations amounted to RM600,000 and we expect the figure to rise to RM700,000 this year.

“One-third of the expenditure each goes to members’ training, administrative cost and maintenance of our premises and vehicles respectively,” he said at the event’s launching by state executive councillor Datuk Dr Teng Hock Nan at the Penang MRCS headquarters recently.

Saw said as a voluntary body, the society did not get any grant from the government and was solely depended on public donations. He said 5,000 members in their white uniforms would go around the streets and shopping complexes with their collection tins.

Organising chairman Chan Hon Kwong said among the activities carried out by the branch was the 24-hour ambulance standby service during festive seasons. “It is through our various fundraising projects that we are able to carry out our humanitarian work to the highest caliber,” he added.

In his speech, Dr Teng lauded the society for organising this mass effort, which reflected the spirit of cooperation. “I strongly appeal to the public to donate generously when approached by the members,” he added.

Annual Flag Day: MRCS sets a target

Friday, February 17th, 2006

MALAYSIAN Red Crescent Society (MRCS) members in their white uniforms will be a familiar sight in Penang this weekend. This is because about 2,000 MRCS members from the Penang branch will be out in force on the streets in the state tomorrow and on Sunday to collect donations in conjunction with their society’s annual Flag Day.

MRCS Penang branch chairman Saw Ewe Yong said the branch had targeted a collection of RM100,000 this year. Besides, organising chairman Chan Hon Kwong said that other than manpower, the society was also in need of financial resources to continue carrying out its humanitarian work.


MRCS members will hit the streets of Penang this weekend to raise funds.

“I appeal to the public to show their support to enable us to carry out our activities,” he said before the launching of the Flag Day by state executive councillor Datuk Koay Kar Huah at the Penang MRCS headquarters on Wednesday.

Chan, who is also MRCS Penang branch vice-chairman, said that among the activities carried out by the branch was the 24-hour ambulance standby service during festive seasons. He said the branch also provided ambulance service to transport the aged and sick from their homes to hospitals.

Thanking the MRCS members for their contributions, Koay urged the public to donate generously to the Flag Day collection to make it possible for the society to continue its noble activities.
