Relief for community
During this period, the hardest hit group are from the low-income or under-served communities. Prudential Malaysia is working with NGO partners to contribute and provide aid.
Fund raising in partnership with Yayasan Generasi Gemilang
Since 2011, Prudential Assurance Malaysia Berhad (PAMB) has been providing temporary financial relief to urban low-income families through our free protection plan – PRUKasih. Together with our NGO partner, Yayasan Generasi Gemilang (YGG), we have been working to improve the lives of the underserved communities through PRUKasih and other programmes. During the current MCO, these communities have been adversely impacted and are in critical need of basic necessities. They are unable to go out to work and earn their daily wage; some have mobility challenges which has made their situation even more dire.
YGG has stepped in to help by purchasing and distributing provisions to low-income families in the communities that they serve, including three PRUKasih communities. PAMB employees are contributing to this initiative and we continue to pay out claims to our PRUKasih communities in the event of an illness, accident and/or death.
PruBSN Prihatin COVID-19 fund raising and zakat distribution to B40 in partnership with MERCY Malaysia
PruBSN’s charitable arm, PruBSN Prihatin has successfully raised more than RM33,000 through their PruBSN Prihatin COVID-19 Campaign to support MERCY Malaysia's Pandemic mission. The funds raised will be channeled to government hospitals and district clinics for purchase of medical and general supplies, as well as to marginalised groups for purchase of their essential needs
Already suffering from the low wages and high cost of living, the COVID-19 outbreak and extended MCO will further impact the livelihood of the poor and hardcore poor families in the B40 group. Together with MERCY Malaysia, PruBSN Prihatin will be allocating RM500,000 from PruBSN’s zakat fund to provide assistance to the families from this vulnerable community.
Contribution to IMARET to provide relief to health facilities and frontliners
PruBSN Prihatin has donated a portion of its zakat fund to IMAM Response & Relief Team (IMARET). This fund will be channeled towards mobilising volunteers at health facilities, providing medical and general supplies to hospitals and district clinics, as well as to assist the communities and frontliners who are currently hospitalised/quarantined.
