Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd (PTP), a member of MMC Group, together with Johor Port Authority (JPA) conducted a donation drive to assist residents of Rumah Seri Kenangan, an old folks home in Johor Bahru as part of both organisations’ continuous Corporate Social Responsibility programme involving the community.   

Rumah Seri Kenangan was recently identified as one of the positive COVID-19 clusters in Johor Bahru (Jalan Ithnin Cluster) after more than 70 residents, including employees were identified positive. The entire old folks home was placed under immediate quarantine and was cut off access to daily necessities.

In response to this, PTP and JPA organised a donation drive from employees and successfully raised over RM12,000 fund and it was used to provide care packages to the residents of Rumah Seri Kenangan.  The care packages consist of dry food items such as rice, cooking oil, biscuits as well as hygiene kits such as hand sanitisers, face masks, toothbrush and adult diapers were handed over to Wan Zalina Wan Ismail, Warden Officer of Rumah Seri Kenangan under strict adherence to the standard operating procedure to ensure the safety of all parties involved.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect people’s lives, PTP remains committed in giving back to the community. The strong support and the sense of camaraderie amongst the employees in rallying effort to collect a significant amount of donation within a very short period is reflection of PTP’s caring, generous and kind-hearted employees to help fellow Malaysians in need.
