MASKargo has uplifted a number of intubation boxes for frontliners in government hospitals in Malaysia dealing with COVID-19 patients.
The shipment is the result of an initiative called the Acrylic Intubation Box Charity Project by a group of anaesthetist doctors at the KPJ Rawang Specialist Hospital.
“The doctors developed a great initiative but they had problems with delivery due to the Movement Restriction Order (MCO) imposed to curb the spread of the virus. They approached MASKargo for assistance to send the 14 pieces of intubation boxes to Kota Bharu, Johor Bharu, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu. As we operate to these airports, we agreed to fly the goods as part of our corporate social responsibility efforts,” said Ibrahim Mohamed Saileh, MASKargo’s Chief Executive Officer.
The boxes for Johor, Sabah and Sarawak were flown on April 3 while the balance for Kelantan was shipped the following day.
In addition 94 units of ventilators arrived safely on MH389 which landed at KLIA at 21:00. The equipment were distributed to the COVID-19 hospitals throughout the country.
