Subang Jaya Community Ambulance
Tokai and Residents Association of USJ 5 contribute RM38,000 to the Subang Jaya Community Ambulance Services in aid of the SJ Community
2 February 2021, Subang Jaya
The Subang Jaya Community Ambulance has been working back-to-back with emergency cases in the community over the last 3 years. However, funds are running critically low. The ambulance initiative has only got a 6-months lifeline of funding; and if no major support comes in soon, the ambulance initiative would not be able to sustain any further. The planned fundraising efforts for 2020 were put on hold ironically because of Covid-19.
In response to aid request by the Subang Jaya Community Ambulance, in what was a joint collaboration, the Residents Association of USJ 5 together with Tokai Engineering (M) Sdn Bhd stands ready to help communities, managed to raise RM38,000 in contribution to the Ambulance service in support of their life-saving work. The mock cheque presentation was held at the open space of the USJ 5 Guard Post A while observing proper Social Distancing protocols.
Dato’ Ir Jimmy Lim, President of Residents’ Association of USJ 5 as well as Group CEO of Tokai Engineering was on hand to present the RM38,000 mock cheque to Mr Kelvin Chew of the Subang Jaya Community Ambulance. YB Michelle Ng, ADUN Subang Jaya, MBSJ Deputy Mayor, Tn. Mohd Zulkurnain Che Ali and MBSJ Councillor and MPP Zone 4 Chairman, Ar. Kamarul Hisham and members of the MPP Zone 4 were in attendance.
Dato’ Ir Jimmy Lim, said: “This is a time of unprecedented challenge when companies and communities should work together, we hope that these specialized ambulances will continue their good work and help reduce any delays in emergency response and ensure more people in Subang Jaya are able to receive immediate care, particularly the senior citizens and the physically challenged”.
“A lack of ambulances and other emergency services can also mean members of the community may experience life-threatening delays in receiving appropriate urgent care, and so we hope that this donation may significantly reduce such delays”
This donation was made possible with financial support from the private residents living in USJ 5, who supported this initiative not only in donations but also in spirit.
