In its effort to continue fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic, HUAWEI Malaysia has announced that it will donate laptops to PIKOM, the National Tech Association of Malaysia to be used at vaccination centres (PPV) in the country.
HUAWEI has previously provided a total of 15 laptops to the PPVs ad part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme. The laptops will be provided until the vaccination programme is complete as they are important to help the government achieve its goal of increasing the number of vaccinated citizens to reach herd immunity.
These laptops will be used by PPV staff to record critical information of citizens who visit the centres at every stage of the vaccination process from registration to the completion of the final dose of vaccine.
"We are very thankful that Huawei has come forward to be part of this CSR project. This is one of the contributions by the industry association to help ease and support the registration process at the PPVs," said PIKOM Chairman Danny Lee.
"At Huawei, we believe that technology improves lives in all aspects. Therefore, it is our privilege to be able to lend our technology to support Malaysia’s fight against COVID-19 by helping to ensure that as many people as possible are fully vaccinated," HUAWEI Malaysia's Vice President of Public Affairs and Communications Pn. Rita Irina Abd. Wahab said.
Last month, the company has donated laptops to the National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM) to support its vaccination programme through its PPVs and house-to-house vaccinations for bed-bound patients.
Last year in April, HUAWEI also donated four technology solutions to the Ministry of Health, which enables healthcare experts along with frontline medical professionals to conduct remote online consultations. The solutions also provide real-time communication between the government and public hospitals via its video conferencing and wireless connectivity capabilities.
