Astro has mobilized its staff volunteers and talents to assist at the Bukit Jalil Stadium vaccination centre, in support of the nation’s Covid-19 National Immunization Programme (NIP).
The week-long initiative which began on Monday (19 July) is part of the #KitaTeguhBersama campaign in conjunction with the National Day theme by the Group to celebrate the unity of togetherness while inspiring Malaysians to believe that we can only go beyond when we are together.
Volunteers at the vaccination centre assisted with non-medical tasks such as ensuring proper temperature and symptom screening, registrations, and managing the waiting rooms.
Singer actress, Amira Othman said: “I am beyond grateful for this opportunity to do my bit to help the country fight Covid-19. It is my sincere hope that all of us will get vaccinated soon so we can achieve herd immunity and be protected.”
Astro volunteers handed out face masks, assisted with public enquiries, and managed the waiting rooms at the vaccination centre.
Astro turns 25 this year and we celebrate the stories of being better together with our customers and communities, all of which make up “KITA” (translated “Us” in English). #KitaTeguhBersama means finding strength in each other, especially in these unprecedented times. If we each do our part, we can beat COVID-19, together.
Astro recently launched a catchy vaccination theme song “Get Your Shot Now,” which calls for the public to take action to be registered for vaccination. The Group also organized vaccination appointments for all Klang Valley staff since June.
Astro Kasih, the Group’s foundation has been extending support to the community via donations of essential items and food to Rumah Kanak-Kanak Bondulu in Tambunan Sabah and to the villages surrounding three primary schools – Sekolah Kebangsaan Magandai (Kota Marudu), Sekolah Kebangsaan Malinsau (Ranau) and Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Paku (Kapit), in remote Sabah and Sarawak.
Under the same initiative #KitaTeguhBersama, the foundation will be channeling funds to the Lung Foundation of Malaysia and Project #BangsaMalaysia for purchasing necessary medical equipment such as oxygen tanks and respiratory devices for hospitals and patients suffering complications from COVID-19 infections.
