Drink to health

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

The Malaysian Red Crescent (MRC) Penang branch is calling for the state government, corporations, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and individuals to support its humanitarian projects by purchasing bottled water from the society.

MRC Penang branch chairman Datuk B.J. Yeang said the sale of bottled water was a new project for the society.

Here’s to Health (H2H) was introduced on May 16 and Holiday Inn Resort is the first corporate entity to support us by purchasing 100 cases of the bottled water bearing our logo.

“Previously, we only collected donations through annual dinners, Flag Day and walkathons so hopefully, people will help make our new fundraising project a success,” she said, adding that the society hoped to raise RM50,000 through this project.

Yeang was speaking to reporters at a press conference to launch the project at Holiday Inn Resort recently.

Project chairman Dr S. Somaskandar said besides raising funds for the society’s activities and training for this year, H2H also aimed to promote the health benefits of drinking plain water instead of other beverages that contain sugar, caffeine and chemicals.

Also present was Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s political secretary Ng Wei Aik.

In his speech, Ng praised the society for its good work in helping the community.

“The state is very appreciative of MRC’s assistance whether it is at public events or disaster situations because the society’s volunteers help without expecting any kind of reward.

“I hope everyone will help support the H2H project because the MRC needs funds to train its members in disaster relief work, first aid and organisational skills as well as to purchase the necessary medical supplies and ambulances,” he said, adding that he would propose to the state to get its bottled water supply from the MRC.

Toasting to healthy lifestyle

THE next time someone wants to propose a toast to your health, the Malaysian Red Crescent (MRC) Penang Branch proposes that they pick up one of its bottles of drinking water for the task.

The branch recently launched its Here’s to Health (H2H) fundraising project promoting the goodness of water to create greater awareness for a better and healthier lifestyle.

Branch chairman Datuk B.J. Yeang said the society would be selling its bottled drinking water to everyone, from large corporations to the local community and households, to raise RM50,000 in support of its humanitarian work.

“When we are too busy with work or any other chores, we tend to forget how important water is to our body.

“The human body is about 60% water for men and 55% for women,” she said, adding that being 2% dehydrated could seriously degrade one’s physical and mental functions.

The prices are RM1 per 500ml bottle and RM2 per 1,500ml bottle.

The bottled water will also be sold in cartons of 24 bottles of 500ml or 12 bottles of 1,500ml, where each carton is priced at RM10 or RM9 each for orders above 20 cartons.

Yeang said the orders could be collected from the headquarters at 26, Grove Road, Air Itam, Penang.

For details, please call the office secretariat at 04-8275678 or email to to place orders.

Malaysian Red Crescent, Penang Branch has embarked on a journey to promote the goodness and importance of drinking water in our hectic daily ordeal.

This is also a fund raising project that will help us fund other humanitarian projects throughout the year. We hope to raise RM 50,000 to help defray our expenditure of approximately RM 1million per year.

The drinking water which we are promoting and selling is approved by the Ministry of Health and bottled by a licensed manufacturer in Penang, Malaysia. We would like to appeal to you to consider purchasing bottled drinking water from us for the use for your corporate functions and/or daily use at home or at the office.
