LAM Wah Ee Hospital has donated RM5,000 to help flood victims in the east coast of peninsula Malaysia.

The donation via The Star-MRCS-Firefly Relief Fund was handed over to the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) Penang branch in aid of the ongoing flood relief efforts.

The hospital’s recycling project committee chairman Cheow Mooy Chew said the fund was raised through the hospital’s recycling project.

“The recycling is an ongoing project which we started in 2002.

“We have collected about RM300,000 over the past 13 years with the support of our staff to help needy patients and these kind of relief funds,” she said after handing over the mock cheque to MRC Penang Branch administrator Cindy Liao at the Penang MRCS office in Jalan Grove recently.

Liao said contributions would be sent to MRCS headquarters in Kuala Lumpur and channelled out accordingly.

“All donations given to MRCS are tax exempted.

“Those wishing to help via MRCS can write out cheques to the ‘MRCS Penang Branch’ or by cash deposit to its account in Public Bank Bhd (Account No 3087736505),” she said.

The public can hand in donations to the MRCS office in Jalan Grove or call MRCS Penang Branch at 04-8275678 on weekdays from 9am to 6pm.
