PCSH Fundraising Dinner

The Perak Community Specialist Hospital (PCSH) will be organising a fundraising dinner on Sunday, September 23 at the Kinta Riverfront Hotel at 7pm.

“We are raising funds to enable this 114-year-old, not-for-profit hospital to continue providing affordable quality healthcare to the community. We hope to raise at least RM300,000,” Woo Chee Wai, the organising chairman said during a press conference held on Tuesday, May 22.

With a total of 100 tables (targeted), it is priced at RM100 per seat and RM1000 per table.

“The funds will be channeled towards the purchase of equipment, ambulance, dialysis machine, etc. in order to save more lives especially those with critical illnesses,” Dato’ Ooi Foh Sing, the advisor explained.

“Next year, we are preparing to build a catheterization laboratory (heart centre) where the equipment alone will cost about RM2.5 million as it needs to be imported from Europe and US,” Woo added.

PCSH is a 69-bedded multi-disciplinary hospital served by a team of dedicated specialist doctors and caring personnel. The hospital is owned by the Perak Chinese Maternity Association.

Interested readers who would like to purchase tickets can call 012 505 3851 (Kit Ting) or 017 520 0028 (Christine Leow). Donations can also be contributed towards the Perak Chinese Maternity Association CIMB account: 8601253753 (donors are advised to inform the association beforehand in order for the tax exemption receipt to be issued by the hospital).
