KUALA LUMPUR, 4 October 2018 – Media Prima Berhad (“Media Prima”), Malaysia’s largest integrated media group, and MERCY Malaysia, a non-profit organisation, have launched ‘Bantuan Bencana Palu’, a public fundraising appeal to aid victims of the earthquake and tsunami that struck Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, last Friday.
The fundraising campaign urgently calls for public donations to fund humanitarian relief efforts by MERCY Malaysia in Palu. The Sulawesi city was struck by a 7.5-magnitude quake and tsunami that caused widespread devastation, leaving tens of thousands homeless, without food and in-need of immediate medical attention.
Every contribution – large or small – counts. All donations will go towards the purchase of relief items, including food and medical supplies, and recovery efforts for affected communities in Palu. The public can make their donations through MERCY Malaysia to the following bank accounts by cheque or bank deposit:
1. ‘MERCY Humanitarian Fund’
5621 7950 4126 (Maybank)
2. ‘MERCY Malaysia’
8000 7929 08 (CIMB)
Note: Donations made within Malaysia are tax-exempted. For more information, visit www.mercy.org.my
Media Prima has frequently collaborated with MERCY Malaysia to provide relief and hope to communities affected by natural disasters or war. All humanitarian missions were made possible through the continuous generosity of donors — every single cent received goes directly to those in-need and continues to make a lasting difference in the lives of many individuals.
