Forum Chair: COVID-19: The Pandemic that Unites

Muhamad Yusri Musa


The pandemic caused by the Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has caused enormous challenges to almost every aspect of life worldwide. In Malaysia, one of the earliest nations affected by the pandemic has responded valiantly both by the government through the Ministry of Health (MOH) and various groups in the communities especially by the Non-Governmental Associations (NGO) to fight the virus and adversities caused by pandemic. The support of NGOs in Malaysia has tremendously assisted the country and supports the Ministry of Health’s efforts to flatten the infection curve successfully during the nationwide lockdown started in March. Here, we selected 4 organisations that have directly contributed in various ways and methods which was utterly unique and inspiring. Their immense efforts and contributions in helping multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi nationalities people may go unnoticed but the impact to the recipients were beyond words.
