Truck News: ISUZU Malaysia together with Sri Hoong Huat Auto Trading donate a complete Isuzu N-Series 5,000kg Truck to the Malaysian Red Crescent Society
Isuzu Malaysia had recently handed over an Isuzu N-Series 5,000kg truck to the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) or the Persatuan Bulan Sabit Merah for their use especially in the state of Pahang. The truck was presentedto the MRCS in a small ceremony where the CEO of Isuzu Malaysia Kenji Matsuoka who presented the mock key to Dato’ Hj Ismail Bin Hj Mat Noor, MRCS Chairman Pahang.
The truck was donated to the MRCS Pahang chapter as it would be used to carry supplies when required especially during the monsoon season. Quite timely as it usually hits at the end of the year which is just a few months time.
MRCS is a humanitarian organisation that is one of the few which offers help and assistance from first aid, ambulance services and the distribution of supplies when disaster strikes. They rely on donation and sponsors to keep their activities going and Isuzu Malaysia has decided to help out with their cause.
The Isuzu N-Series 5,000kg chassis was fitted with an aluminum box body which was donated by truck body builders Sri Hoong Huat Auto Trading Sdn Bhd (LEW’s).
ISUZU DONATES TRUCK FOR RELIEF WORK
With the annual monsoon deluge and natural disasters regularly affecting thousands living in the east coast states of Peninsular Malaysia, getting relief supplies to them can often be burdensome and usually difficult for humanitarian organisations such as the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS).
Distribution of essentials and other supplies need to be effected systematically and rapidly and this usually requires a large pool of resources ranging from manpower to trucks, four-wheel drive vehicles and even boats. In some instances, volunteer groups and private vehicles are needed to assist when the affected areas become too large or difficult to access.
In an effort to provide the MRCS with an additional asset to deploy in times of need, Isuzu Malaysia donated an Isuzu N-Series 5,000kg truck for use by the Society, particularly in the state of Pahang. The truck will be a valuable and timely tool for the MRCS particularly as the Northeast monsoons approach in less than three months.
Kenji Matsuoka, Chief Executive Officer of Isuzu Malaysia who handed the keys of the Isuzu truck to Secretary General of the Malaysian Red Crescent Society Dato’ Sayed A. Rahman bin Sayed Mohd hoped that the company’s contribution would enhance the society’s outreach efforts to communities in times of need.
“Preparedness for eventualities can make a huge difference in coping with natural calamities and disasters. By providing the Malaysian Red Crescent Society with one of the most dependable and efficient trucks available today, we hope that Isuzu is able to contribute towards the Society’s disaster response initiatives,” said Matsuoka.
The Isuzu N-Series 5,000kg chassis presented by Isuzu Malaysia was fitted with an aluminum box body donated by Sri Hoong Huat Auto Trading Sdn Bhd (LEW’s), one of the leading truck body builders in the country.
