Covid-19: You Can Help Healthcare Workers & Frontliners Via These 5 Fundraising Efforts
Fashion Valet x Islamic Medical Association of Malaysia
To date, the FV Covid-19 Support Fund started by Fashion Valet co-founders Datin Vivy Yusof and Dato' Fadzarudin Anuar has amassed a total of RM892,000. The funds collected will go directly towards The Islamic Medical Association of Malaysia's Response & Relief Team (IMARET) to provide medical supplies to hospitals and assist frontliners who have themselves contracted Covid-19.
You can also donate directly to the Islamic Medical Association of Malaysia's own dedicated Covid-19 fund, aimed at mobilising volunteers to areas of need, in addition to assisting frontliners.
To help government hospitals accommodate the escalating number of Covid-19 cases, MERCY Malaysia has called on members of the public to contribute to its Covid-19 fund. The NGO has currently set its LaunchGood crowdfunding target at RM120,000.
Working closely with the National Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC) Disease Control Division, MERCY Malaysia will use the funds collected to provide necessary respiratory aids to intensive care units in selected government hospitals across the nation.
