MR D.I.Y., Malaysia’s largest home improvement retailer, is channelling essential personal protective equipment (PPEs) worth more than RM432,000 to 136 healthcare and emergency services centres across the country.
The initiative is a collaboration with the Malaysia Relief Agency (MRA) and is part of the Group’s continuing efforts to support frontliners and those helping to stem the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. This time around, the PPEs are being channelled by MR D.I.Y.’s own logistics network to district police headquarters (IPD), health clinics, hospitals, and quarantine centres across Peninsular Malaysia. MRA assisted in identifying the services most in need of help, and will also coordinate the distribution of these supplies in Sabah and Sarawak.
Over the course of the last year and a half, MR D.I.Y. has leveraged its direct relationships with local and global manufacturers, international logistics partners, and its in-house nationwide delivery network to ensure that essential supplies such as PPEs, face masks, face shields, disposable aprons and hand sanitisers reach healthcare frontliners, government bodies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and affected communities across the country. In addition, it has also stepped up to support communities in need including those affected by non-COVID-related disasters, like floods and other natural disasters.
The Group has also ensured its retail operations adhere to all standard operating procedures (SOPs) recommended by the Ministry of Health, and that the majority of its workforce is vaccinated.
