Wednesday, 6 Mei 2020

KUALA LUMPUR, 6 May 2020 – Bank Pembangunan Malaysia Berhad (”BPMB”) recently contributed 100,000 face masks to Angkatan Tentera Malaysia (“ATM”) and Polis Di-Raja Malaysia (“PDRM”). The face masks were for distribution to the army and police officers who manned roadblocks during the Movement Control Order (“MCO”).

The contribution of face masks is part of BPMB’s efforts in supporting the frontliners. “The Armed Forces and the Police have played an important role in ensuring that Malaysians abide by the rules set by the Government during the MCO,” said BPMB President/Group Chief Executive Officer, Arshad Mohamed Ismail. “This is the least we can do to help protect the officers in return for their sacrifices while on duty.”

“The army and police officers have made significant sacrifices to ensure that Malaysians remain safe and healthy,” he continued. “On behalf of everyone at BPMB, we would like to thank ATM and PDRM for their selfless dedication.”

Arshad represented BPMB in handing over the masks to representatives of ATM and PDRM in a simple handing over ceremony at Menara Bank Pembangunan in Kuala Lumpur. ATM was represented by Colonel Ahmad Najib bin Othman and Captain Muhamad Hanafi bin Othman while PDRM was represented by CP Dato’ Sri Rosli Ab Rahman and SAC Tuan Azizee Bin Ismail.
