SJAM COVID19 Initiatives – Summary Update

Update as of 19th May 2020 (4.09 pm)

18th May 2020

Medical escort for home-bound Malaysians from Singapore

When Malaysia imposed Movement Control Order and Singapore with Circuit Breaker, cross borders public transportation was suspended, leaving many Malaysians stranded in Singapore. Pregnant ladies will need to bear high cost of delivering a child and vulnerable groups may need to incur high medical costs if they continue to stay in Singapore.

When there was a call to help, we quickly put together a team to provide basic temperature screening, hand sanitizing and ambulance standby. For 3 rounds, St. John Ambulance of Malaysia (with members who work and also stranded in Singapore), St John Singapore and St. John Responder Unit – SJRU worked together.
