Northport Continues to Help Communities and Healthcare Workers During MCO 3.0 and EMCO



PORT KLANG, 12 August 2021 – The COVID-19 pandemic has presented numerous challenges to society. The high number of daily cases especially in the Klang Valley has triggered the Government to tighten the movement restrictions through the implementation of the Movement Control Order (CMO) 3.0 and subsequently the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) since May 2021.

Although the Federal and State Governments have already announced various measures to alleviate the burden of the rakyat, the difficult situation today has attracted the attention of non-governmental organisations (NGOs), corporate companies and individuals to come forward and extend aid to the underprivileged communities as well as the frontline healthcare workers.

As a concerned corporate organisation, Northport (Malaysia) Bhd (“Northport”), a member of MMC Group continues to play its role to help those affected by the COVID- 19 pandemic.

Throughout the month of July 2021, Northport has organised CSR programmes through the distribution of essential food supplies to underprivileged communities around the Klang area. A total of 2,000 sets of food packs were distributed to the communities in need. To ensure an efficient and effective distribution of the aid, Northport has collaborated with more than 20 mosques and NGOs around Klang to identify the rightful recipients. Each set of the food pack contained rice, rice vermicelli, cooking oil, sugar, flour and condensed milk.

The high number of daily cases of COVID-19 infections has also put the healthcare institutions in the country under extreme pressure to fight against the virus. The emergence of the Variants of Concern (“VOC”) further exacerbated the situation in the hospitals and health clinics around the country.

To ease the burden of the healthcare institutions, Northport has contributed medical equipment and supplies to the Port Klang Health Clinic for its COVID-19 screening centre facility. The equipment includes blood pressure monitors, infrared forehead thermometers, heavy duty stand fans, tables and other equipment. Earlier in July, Northport had also contributed a nasal high-flow therapy machine to be used to treat COVID-19 patients at Hospital Selayang.

“As a responsible corporate organisation, we are committed to continue to help our communities and frontliners to get through this difficult and challenging period. I believe that we will come out of this health crisis much stronger, together,” said Dato’ Azman Shah Mohd Yusof, Chief Executive Officer of Northport.
