A good deed brighten a dark world. These days not many companies still preach and practice corporate social responsibility. One of the greatest things we can do in life is to reach out and do a good deed for another human being. A round of applause to MONSPACE Multinational Corporations for its recent contribution of a vehicle to StJohn's Ambulance Malaysia (SJAM). I was honoured to be invited to witness the handing over and official launch of the mobile clinic at The Earth, Bukit Jalil, two days ago.
According to Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai, CEO of MONSPACE, the move was inspired by the hope to see more Malaysians getting medical attention. “The mobile clinic service will be able to reach rural areas and even indigenous communities who often have difficulty accessing clinics and hospitals,” said Lai.
The distinguished guests present at the launch include Tan Sri Musa Hassan, Malaysia's previous Inspector-General of Police, Dato’ Lai See Ming, Chairman of SJAM, Dato’ Yeo Kim Thong, Secretary General of SJAM cum Chief Operating Officer of SJAM-KPS Foundation.
“SJAM has been committed to serving the community since its founding. Following the addition of a bariatric ambulance last year to serve obese patients, the mobile clinic has been yet another effort to show that we are constantly seeking for ways to make life better for all Malaysians.” said Dato’ Yeo Kim Thong.
The bariatric ambulance was also donated earlier by Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai. “I’ve always paid attention to health care provision and medical issues in the country. I often visit institutions such as orphanages, old folks home and NGOs to truly understand what are the pressing issues faced by the nation,” said Lai. Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai also hopes that more people would contribute to making healthcare accessible.

The mobile clinic is crucial in furthering the aim and core purpose of SJAM which is to encourage and promote all works of humanity for the relief of persons in sickness and distress without any distinction of race, class, colour or creed. SJAM Selangor started the mobile clinic services in August last year, providing healthcare to the indigenous community in Semenyih. Besides free healthcare, SJAM also provide food and relief items to help the underserved. The mobile clinic will also cater for orphanages and old folks homes.
