KOTA KINABALU: PETRONAS today contributed RM3 million to the State Disaster Relief Fund for victims of the earthquake that hit Ranau on 5 June 2015.
PETRONAS President and Group Chief Executive Officer Datuk Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin handed over a mock cheque to Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Hj Aman at Seri Gaya, the official residence of the Chief Minister.
Present at the ceremony were State Secretary, Tan Sri Sukarti Wakiman, who is also the State Disaster Relief and Management Committee Chairman, PETRONAS Sabah and Labuan Chairman, Encik Mohamed Firouz Asnan, as well as PETRONAS Senior General Manager of Group Strategic Communications, Liz Kamaruddin.
“The company’s management and staff are deeply saddened by the earthquake that resulted in loss of lives, livelihood and damage to properties,” said Datuk Wan Zulkiflee.
“Part of this contribution will be channeled to the mountain guides and others whose lives have been affected by the tragedy,” he added.
This contribution is in addition to the RM5 million that PETRONAS presented in aid of flood relief efforts carried out by the State Disaster Relief and Management Committee in April last year.
