MAB Kargo flew its third relief mission for the Rohingya refugees on 21 November, with close to 50 tonnes of goods on board MH6446, an A330-200 freighter. Goods delivered will set up the Malaysian Field Hospital at the Cox’s Bazaar district of Bangladesh.
On top of medical supplies for three months, medical equipment were too carried for emergencies and resuscitation, surgery and Intensive Care Unit treatments, orthopedic procedures, labor room, basic neonatal care, pediatrics and preventive medication.
Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi, CEO of MAB Kargo Sdn Bhd said, “Part of our corporate social responsibility program is to give back to the community in need and this flight is exactly about that. We have taken all necessary precaution with this shipment as much of the goods are sensitive medical equipment.” He continued, “Our Safety Team have been working hard to ensure that the packaging and declaration are in accordance with IATA guidelines.”
Chief Technical Partner for the Malaysia Field Hospital deployment, Colonel (Dr) Mohd Arshil bin Moideen said, “It is the first ever field hospital deployment from Malaysia for a humanitarian mission abroad. It is great that the corporate sector is also involved. MAB Kargo’s CSR contribution via the logistic support is very much appreciated.”
