With floods devastating parts of Malaysia, Petronas has pledged RM 25 million to help flood victims through the GLC Disaster Relief Network (GDRN), in news reported by Bernama.

Petronas Steps Up for Flood Victims

The fund, pledged by units and subsidiaries within the Petronas Group, including Yayasan Petronas, will augment the total sum contributed by other government-linked companies (GLCs) that are part of the GDRN.

Separately, Kelab Sukan dan Rekreasi Petronas, the Association of Wives and Women Employees of Petronas, and Badan Kebajikan Islam Petronas have jointly embarked on a donation drive to be channelled to the victims via the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS), Petronas said in a statement.

As in previous years, Petronas Dagangan Bhd (PDB) will be deploying its ROVR refuelling truck to flood-hit areas to serve customers or rescue operations where petrol stations are closed or inaccessible.

Petronas is also extending assistance to its employees affected by the floods, including providing temporary accommodation, meal allowances, special leave, financial assistance, and food and consumables, which will alleviate the suffering caused by the devastating floods.
