Shell’s ‘Anda Pam, Kami Derma’ campaign raised RM428,388 for NKF Malaysia

Shah Alam, 20 August 2019 --( ASIA TODAY )-- A total of RM428,388 has been successfully raised for the National Kidney Foundation of Malaysia (NKF) in a Raya charity campaign held by Shell retailers in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Negeri Sembilan.

Shell Malaysia’s ‘Anda Pam, Kami Derma’ campaign was initiated in an effort to spread the spirit of caring and sharing during the balik kampung season. During the campaign period, 315 Shell retailers donated 1 sen (RM0.01) to NKF for every litre of petrol pumped at Shell stations in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Negeri Sembilan.

“NKF is delighted to be a part of Shell Malaysia’s ‘Anda Pam, Kami Derma’ campaign this year. We would like to express our utmost appreciation to all Shell retailers who have participated in this charitable project. The funds received will certainly help to ease the burden of our patients as well as improving their quality of life”, said Datin S. Shobana, Head of Fundraising and Branding & Communications, NKF Malaysia at the cheque presentation ceremony.

“This marks our second consecutive year to have Shell retailers in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor participate in this social responsibility programme and we are thrilled to have Negeri Sembilan Shell retailers joining the force. It is certainly a great achievement to be accomplished within 6 days. Besides, we hope that this campaign helps raising awareness on kidney disease in the country,” said Zharin Zhafrael, National Sales Manager, Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn. Bhd.

“It brings us great satisfaction to put a smile on the faces of deserving dialysis patients and their families, as well as contributing back to the community. We hope that our contribution will help alleviate the burden of underprivileged dialysis patients” said Eliza Abdul Razak, Representative of Shell retailers.

All funds collected from the campaign will go towards NKF’s efforts in supporting the underprivileged dialysis patients, as well as purchasing new dialysis machines for NKF’s upcoming dialysis centre in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.

There are currently more than 50,000 dialysis patients in Malaysia with 7,000 new patients every year. It is estimated to double more than that by 2040, which puts Malaysia in third place of the world’s highest kidney related diseases. Meanwhile, NKF has over 1,700 dialysis patients receiving subsidized dialysis treatment currently in over 28 dialysis centres nationwide.

Members of the public who are interested in contributing towards NKF’s cause in helping Malaysians who cannot access dialysis treatments can find out more through the NKF website at http://nkf.org.my or call 03-7954 9048.

We fuelled the ambitions of Malaysians: whether the generations of retail business partners; thousands of Shell scholars over the years; young entrepreneurs from our LiveWire programme; or Shell staff and alumni who are Malaysian luminaries today.
