KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital celebrated New Year 2015 in a more meaningful way. In view of 2014 having been a challenging year for Malaysia with three air tragedies, the latest crisis of massive floods in Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Johor and Perak prompted KPJ volunteers to assist the affected people of Kampung Gajah in the evacuation centre in Maktab Rendah Sains MARA (MRSM) Pasir Salak. In their first 2015 CSR outreach project, KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital contributed almost RM10,000 which included cash, medications and food for the flood victims.
KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital which never forgets its responsibility to society, together with the Doctors’ Charity Fund of KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital, provided medical checkups with prescriptions of medications and supplements to almost a thousand evacuees which included the elderly, children and their family members.
More than 40 young energetic volunteers from non-nursing, nursing, Medical Officer and six Consultants took part in this noble cause, spearheaded by the Chief Executive Officer of KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital, Asmadi Mohd Bakri.
