Ihsan Johor Makes Drinking Water Accessible

Ensuring freshwater is available at all times for frontliners and COVID-19 patients alike

LG Water Purifier donated to Armed Forces Field Hospital Johor Bahru

Ihsan Johor, a recipient of the Iskandar Malaysia Social Hero Awards (IMSHA), has provided four LG water purifiers to the Armed Forces Field Hospital in Johor Bahru, thanks to the support of Free Market Johor, sponsors, and contributors.

On the 20th of June, two units were handed over, one of which was fully contributed by Free Market Johor, while the remaining units arrived on the 30th of June and 6th of July, respectively.

All of the units are placed in every ward of the Armed Forces Field Hospital Johor Bahru. 

“The objective of this contribution is to facilitate COVID-19 patients to obtain hot and cold drinking water on an ongoing basis while reducing the burden of health workers from obtaining drinking water for patients. It allows health workers to focus on the treatment of COVID-19 patients in particular,” said Farrah Baptist, CEO of Ihsan Johor in a statement.

With the help of Kluang Malaysia Relief Association officers, Ihsan Johor also offers water purifiers and air coolers at the workers’ resting area.
