Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu urged government-linked companies and corporations to be moderate and thrifty when celebrating festivals.
He cited Menteri Besar Incorporation’s (MB Inc) banquet held specifically for hospital personnel and patients.
“It’d be better if the party is small, as less money is spent. The excess money can then be used to improve the hospital’s facilities and patients’ well being.”
“I am impressed with what MB Inc is doing today,” he told reporters during a media conference after his visit to the pediatric ward of Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital, Ipoh on Wednesday, June 26. The visit was also part of his Hari Raya call on the hospital.
“I am pleased to meet the children and their doting parents during this auspicious month of Syawal. Some have come from afar to be with their children.”
He expressed his gratitude to the hospital staff for the effort taken to care for the sick and the infirm during the Hari Raya festivity.
MB Inc donated 10 wheelchairs and 10 infusion pumps worth RM3000 to the hospital. The gifts were received by the hospital director, Teo Gim Sian, on behalf of the hospital.
