HP Inc. Malaysia donated 112 HP PCs, along with monitors and computer accessories to be used by the state of Johor to facilitate the roll out of the state vaccination programme across 56 vaccination centres in April. Johor Menteri Besar, Datuk Ir. Haji Hasni Mohammad was present to accept the donation on behalf of the state at the handover ceremony.
“We are thankful for HP Inc. Malaysia’s continuous support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic from much needed PPE in 2020 to now, with personal computers for our vaccination centres. To ensure full usage of these devices, we will repurpose the computers for community internet centres and educational purposes post COVID-19 vaccination. We look forward to future collaborations with HP Inc. Malaysia,” said Datuk Hasni Mohammad.
“Johor is an important partner to us and it is important that HP contributes to the safety of our partners, customers and the communities we operate in. We hope the PC donations will benefit Johoreans and Malaysians as we continue to learn and work from home,” said Bret Funke, Managing Director of HP Manufacturing Malaysia.
The donation is part of HP Inc. Malaysia’s ongoing effort to support Malaysia during the pandemic. In 2020, HP Inc. Malaysia provided support to government bodies, businesses, and communities through donations to Mercy Malaysia to help pilot targeted mass COVID-19 testing programmes as well as personal protective supplies (PPE) to the state of Johor and Penang.
Throughout the year, HP Inc. Malaysia also launched several remote working and learning initiatives aimed to keep Malaysians learning and working from home safely including partnering with Teach for Malaysia to donate laptops to support students in need.
