The founders of FashionValet Vivy Yusof and husband Fadzarudin Anuar have started a charity fund for the frontliners of the COVID-19 pandemic, including doctors, nurses, hospital staff, and healthcare professionals that have been working tirelessly to save lives.
The fund platform is called FV COVID19 Support Fund, organized on behalf of IMAM Response and Relief Team (IMARET).
According to the donation website, the funding was created to support the Malaysian healthcare system.
More cases are rising and this is our chance to help get our hospitals as ready as possible to combat COVID19 and save lives. We hope you will help us with this cause and donate any amount to help others around us. We are stronger together!FV for Covid19 Support fund
All funds raised will be used to:
1. Mobilize volunteers to assist at health facilities.
2. Assist hospitalised/quarantined friends and frontliners.
3. Provide medical and general supplies to hospitals.
Currently, Malaysians have raised almost RM120,000 at the time of writing. Vivy Yusof and her husband have donated RM100,000 of personal funds to the cause.
They also donated portable air conditioners to Hospital Serdang to make working conditions more bearable for hospital staff.
Malaysian healthcare workers are risking their lives and working around the clock to provide top notch healthcare for our fellow Malaysians.
There are currently 57 hospitals dedicated for screening and 28 hospitals assigned as designated referral centres for COVID-19. See the full list here.
To drastically lower the risk of infection, do follow the Movement Control Order and stay at home. By reducing the number of patients and clusters to flatten the curve, all the healthcare professionals will be able to save more lives.
