OCBC Bank contributes RM100,000 to Mercy Malaysia to assist flood victims
OCBC Bank (Malaysia) Berhad (OCBC Bank) has contributed RM100,000 to MERCY Malaysia as part of its efforts to help those affected by the ongoing devastating floods in Terengganu, Johor, Pahang, Perak and Kelantan.
According to OCBC Bank Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Ong Eng Bin, when the Bank heard about the floods and saw what MERCY Malaysia planned to do the natural thing to do was to lend immediate financial assistance.
“We see the immediate need to assist those who are badly hit by the floods in the various states, especially in the East Coast. We understand that thousands of people are affected and we would like to do our part to help.
“We fully support MERCY Malaysia’s initiative to provide emergency assistance while focusing on its primary role of long-term recovery efforts including through humanitarian aid such as hygiene kits, food and nutrition through provision of ready-to-eat food. We are confident and thankful that MERCY Malaysia will also plan for medical intervention either by assisting the existing outreach medical team or supplying medical equipment or medicine to the health centres in the affected areas,” Dato’ Ong said.
