The fund is to provide relief to muslim and non-muslim frontliners who are adversely affected by the outbreak. The contribution was presented to YB Senator Dato’ Seri Dr Haji Zulkifli Mohammad Al-Bakri, Minister in The Prime Minister’s Department on 30 March.

Meanwhile, Bank Islam, through its corporate responsibility arm, AMAL, provides an allocation of RM600,000 for the following initiatives:
  • Financial assistance to micro-entrepreneurs whose business is severely affected by the pandemic.
  • Direct Relief Support Programme which will be used in supplying food and necessities to universities, orphanages, old folks’ homes and homes for the disabled, as well as essentials and medical supplies to hospitals and district health clinics. 
  • Purchase of necessities and essential needs for hospitals nationwide.

Encik Mohd Muazzam Mohamed, Chief Executive Officer of BIMB Holdings and Bank Islam said, “As a responsible corporate citizen, it is our responsibility to look after the wellbeing of our stakeholders and the communities. COVID-19 has taken a severe toll on the welfare of society and economic activities around the globe; more so on the medical fraternity and micro- entrepreneurs.

The RM1.6 million pledge is part of our on-going effort to assist the vulnerable and underprivileged communities who have been significantly impacted by the pandemic. With all initiatives in place, we hope to be able to cushion the impact of the current adversaries for all.”
