St. John Ambulance of Malaysia (SJAM) is a branch of St. John Ambulance International. Founded in 1908, it is a non-profit, non government organisation with a mission to provide medical assistance to those who need it.

Its offers services such as haemodialysis, ambulance, first aid, first aid standby, community service, and highway emergency ambulance.

On 12 August 2017 (Saturday), St. John Ambulance of Malaysia Kawasan Pantai Selangor (SJAM-KPS) held a gala celebrating its 40th anniversary. CEO of Monspace, Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai was invited.

Besides fundraising, the event also aimed to increase public awareness about the work of SJAM, so more people understand the life-saving purpose of the organisation.

Last year, Monspace donated Malaysia’s first ever bariatric ambulance to SJAM, in order to help the obese receive better healthcare. This ambulance was also listed in the 2016 Malaysian Book of Records.

Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai, who has always been passionate about charity, announced earlier that she would donate a second bariatric ambulance to SJAM. On the gala, she officially handed over said ambulance, along with a truck and a new Toyota Avanza RV to SJAM Selangor for their day to day operations.

“Obesity is an increasingly serious problem in Malaysia. SJAM faced difficulties in the past when transporting obese patients to the hospital, so I decided to help when I knew about the issue,” said Lai, CEO of Monspace.

YBhg Dato’ Yeo Kim Thong, state commander of SJAM Selangor said Lai’s donation is very timely, and has helped overcome the organisation’s challenge in providing medical aid to obese patients.

This year, Monspace also donated a truck and a new Toyota Avanza RV along with the second bariatric ambulance.

“Monspace is donating the second bariatric ambulance to give SJAM Selangor more flexibility in the allocation of resources. We want to ensure no one misses the urgent medical attention they need due to a lack of vehicles. The truck and RV would be useful in sending SJAM personnels to emergency sites and regular training sessions,” said Lai.

SJAM’s 40th anniversary gala was an exciting one. There was a lucky draw which gave out exciting prizes, and a renowned band which performed live.

Other VIPs present were former national chairman of SJAM Dato Dr. Low Bin Tick, state commander of SJAM Selangor YBhg Dato’ Yeo Kim Thong, and Chairman of SJAM-KPS Dato Dr. Lim Sim Boon.

适逢雪兰莪圣约翰救伤队(SJAM-KPS)成立四十周年,雪兰莪圣约翰救伤队於2017年8月12日(星期六)主办了一场大型的四十周年慈善晚宴,诚邀Monspace集团执行长拿督斯里赖彩云出席了这项活动。

这一项慈善晚宴除了要为圣约翰救伤队筹集善款以及医疗配备之外,更旨在向国民推广圣约翰救护机构,让更多的人了解着圣约翰的救护人员如何站在救援最前线,不计回酬与时间,将挽救生命作为己任的大爱精神。

去年,Monspace集团想雪兰莪圣约翰救伤队捐赠了全马首辆肥胖人士特殊救伤车,以便圣约翰救伤队能更加深入帮助民众,同时,这一辆全马首辆专为肥胖病患设计的救伤车被列入了2016年大马纪录大全(Malaysian Book of Records)。

向来热心公益的拿督斯里赖彩云今年也不例外,她於雪兰莪圣约翰救伤队四十周年慈善晚宴上再度捐赠了一辆肥胖病人特殊救伤车一辆箱型货车以及一辆新款丰田Avanza房车作为员工汽车。

“大马的肥胖与超重问题日益严重,圣约翰很早以前就已面对没有适合的救伤车载送体型较大的病患的问题,当我知道圣约翰的困扰後,决定捐赠一辆肥胖病人特殊救伤车,以解决逼在眉睫的问题”,Monspace集团执行长拿督斯里赖彩云说道。

雪州圣约翰救伤队总指挥拿督斯里杨金同受访时透露,Monspace集团的慷慨捐赠彷佛一场及时雨,解决了雪兰莪圣约翰近年来面对的问题,圣约翰已能有效的载送需要帮助的肥胖病人,做到第一时间的救援。

今年,Monspace集团除了捐赠第二辆肥胖病人特殊救伤车外,也捐赠一辆箱型货车以及一辆丰田Avanza房车。

“今年集团再加码捐赠肥胖病人特殊救伤车,主要是想让雪兰莪圣约翰救伤队能更自由松动的调用该型号的救伤车,而不会面临救伤车短缺而错失了病人的救援的机会。捐赠箱型货车以及房车是方便载送救伤人员前往执行任务或是队员参与训练课程等用途”,拿督斯里赖彩云透露。

今年的雪兰莪圣约翰救伤队四十周年慈善晚宴节目十分精彩,大会安排了幸运抽奖节目,送出价值丰富的礼品,同时也邀请了知名乐团现场演奏动人歌曲。
