As the country’s largest airport operator and part of the essential services still operating during Malaysia’s Movement Control Order (MCO), Malaysia Airports is very much involved in the nationwide efforts combating COVID-19. Their staff remain on the ground, facilitating efforts by the government to screen incoming passengers and sending them to quarantine centres. As front liners themselves, Malaysia Airports understands the crucial role of the various front liners that are hard at work in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a token of solidarity, gratitude and support, Malaysia Airports has donated 2,000 units of comfort kits to front liners at Hospital Sungai Buloh (HSB) via the #MYAirportCARES initiative. The hospital is the main hospital for treating COVID-19 cases in the country, as well as the designated reference hospital for passengers passing through KUL who require further treatment. Thus, one can only imagine how busy it must be for the hospital’s staff. Each #MYAirportCARES comfort kit contains a sleeping bag, toiletries and chocolates, which are hoped to ease the situation a little during the front liners’ long shifts.
Meanwhile, another 500 units of cheer packages comprising chocolate snacks have also been sent to the front liners at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. These cheer packages were courtesy of Malaysia Airports’ retail and duty-free subsidiary, Eraman. Queen Elizabeth Hospital is the assigned main hospital for COVID-19 treatments in Sabah, and is the reference hospital for patients-under- investigation (PUIs) in Kota Kinabalu.
It is hoped that these #MYAirportCARES comfort kits and cheer packages will bring some joy to the front liners as well as stranded passengers during days that might seem a bit too long. We’re all in this together and Malaysia Airports is committed to ensuring the well-being of airport guests, as well as the nation at large.
