Mah Sing makes big donations for flood, LSD patients

Selangor, 2022 – Mah Sing Healthcare joined efforts with Mah Sing Foundation (MSF) and pulled together RM110,000 for humanitarian aid to the local community in need.

Of that amount, RM50,000 was donated to Mercy Malaysia, and RM20,000 was earlier donated to the Member Parliament (MP) of Klang Office, both of which aided those affected by the recent flood. In addition, RM40,000 was donated to the Malaysia Lysosomal Diseases Association (MLDA) for medical care support. 

Mah Sing’s Founder and Group Managing Director, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum who is also representing Mah Sing Foundation, witnessed the presentation of the cheque to the Executive Director of Mercy Malaysia, Mr. Malcom Chapman, and the Treasurer of Malaysia Lysosomal Diseases Association, Ms. Rachel Siew, at Mah Sing Healthcare earlier today.

Mah Sing Healthcare’s glove factory has completed the commissioning of all their 12 production lines and received relevant certifications for glove sales to the United States, Canada, EU and EEA territories.  They have also received glove orders and as such, are keen to embark on more CSR activities to help the community they operate in.  Mah Sing Healthcare will uphold its mission statement of being passionate about serving community needs with integrity and humility. 

Flood Recovery Programme

The recent flooding in several areas in the Klang Valley has caused serious damage to property and water supply infrastructure, as well as the loss of valuable items. Mah Sing’s donations to Mercy Malaysia and the Klang community are used to help evacuees’ centres with water, sanitation, hygiene, nutritional meals, as well as basic personal and household supplies, including mattresses, blankets, kitchen sets, cleaning kits, and other necessities. 

Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum, said, “We are deeply concerned about the recent flood issue resulting in loss of life and damage to property.

“As compassionate and responsible corporate citizens, we hope that our combined efforts with Mah Sing Foundation can help ease the burden of the community to some extent.

“We believe that a company’s social consciousness is defined by having the platform to improve the lives of others by making it a moral obligation. Our corporate values and beliefs are deeply established in this charitable endeavour.”

Lysosomal Storage Disease

The Malaysian Lysosomal Disease Association (MLDA) was founded in May 2011 by a group of parents as a non-profit organisation with the primary purpose of advocating for the rights of LSD patients and their families to receive equal treatment. Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong commented, “The major challenge in rare disease management is the financial limitation. Unfortunately, due to the rare nature of the diseases, the association receives limited attention from funders. This worsened during the prolonged pandemic period. We hope our contributions will help the patients and also create more awareness about this rare disease.”

The donation will be used to help the patients by providing financial assistance, medical items and check-ups that are a significant financial burden for the patient and their families. 

Prioritise local communities

Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong also said, “At Mah Sing Group, we are sensitive to the surrounding problems that plague Malaysia. We care about our local Malaysian community and we feel that many more Malaysians need the attention and assistance from other corporate companies.

“Throughout these years through our strategic partner Mah Sing Foundation, the Group has been running numerous long-term impactful programmes for the underserved communities.

“We have created a strong presence within the community in Kuala Lumpur, and we are now looking forward to assist and uplift the standard of living of the Selangor community, focusing in Klang area.”

Founded in 2005, MSF strives to make lasting changes in the lives of the underserved community, with a key focus on Malaysia, by forging sustainable strategic collaborations with various stakeholders to make this change a reality. In 2021 alone, MSF supported over 27 schools and NGOs, impacting the lives of more than 49,000 individuals.

Established in 2020, Mah Sing Healthcare is led by a group of experts with 15 to 30 years of experience in glove manufacturing. Mah Sing Healthcare’s vision is to advance healthcare globally with the commitment to expand its footprint worldwide to become a sustainable global leader.

Having obtained FDA 510K, Health Canada Medical Device License, and MDR certificate, Mah Sing Healthcare is ready to accelerate their business of exporting medical grade gloves to the US, Canada, EU, and EEA territories.
