KUALA LUMPUR, 16 April – As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to persist in Malaysia, China Communications Construction (ECRL) Sdn Bhd (CCC-ECRL) — the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commission (EPCC) Contractor of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project — will continue with its corporate social responsibility by donating medical supplies including more than 150,000 masks to state governments and local councils along the alignment.
CCC-ECRL Managing Director Bai Yinzhan said, “While we have put in various precautionary and preventive measures to ensure the health and safety of our staff and work sites, we continue to stay true to our belief in creating value and giving back to society. We have worked with medical supply manufacturers and logistic providers to ensure the needed items are sent to Malaysia, to whom we pledge to ride through the storm together. ”
Backing the calls from the Chinese Embassy, CCC-ECRL mobilised its medical supply donation drive on March 24. It has pledged to procure more supplies to meet
the local needs.
Since then, its basecamps along the alignment have reached out and donated medical supplies to the Federal Government; the state governments of Kelantan, Terengganu, and Pahang ; hospitals; and various agencies in Pasir Puteh, Besut and Setiu.
“ECRL is one of the key economic and trade cooperation projects between China and Malaysia. Other than contributing to engineering excellence, CCC-ECRL has pledged to provide Malaysia the resources to fight the epidemic in preparation for an economic recovery development post-COVID-19.” Bai added.
