SHAH ALAM, Jan 19 — The Menteri Besar Selangor (Incorporated), or MBI, has handed over the Automated External Defibrillators (AED) emergency aid equipment worth RM9,000 to the Shah Alam Hospital.
Its Corporate Social Responsibility head Ahmad Azri Zainal Nor said the aid was given after the hospital submitted its application to Kota Anggerik state assemblyman Najwan Halimi.
“Today (yesterday) we handed over the AED mobile emergency aid that can be used everywhere, especially by patients experiencing a heart attack.
“Najwan reached out to us and requested this medical aid and we are more than happy to donate the equipment to the Shah Alam Hospital to help ease the treatment process,” he said when met after handing over the AED equipment at the hospital’s lobby, here yesterday.
Ahmad Azri said hospitals are welcome to submit their requests for medical equipment either directly to MBI or through state representatives.
“If there are similar needs at other hospitals, InsyaAllah it can be channeled with the coordination from the state government and the Federal government.
Meanwhile, Najwan thanked MBI for approving the request and he hoped the aid could help facilitate treatments at the hospital.
“If there is something that MBI and I could help with, the hospital could reach out to us directly. We understand that the government has allocated huge funds for the medical sector, however, it may have its limitations.
“As a state representative, I will try my best to help,” he added.
