Launching Of Mobile Clinic Service

MONSPACE Multinational Corporation has donated another vehicle to St. John’s Ambulance
Malaysia (SJAM), strengthening SJAM’s mobile clinic initiative. The handing over ceremony and
official launch of the mobile clinic was held on 23 Feb 2017, at The Earth, Bukit Jalil.

 Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai, CEO of MONSPACE, said the move was inspired by the hope to see more
Malaysians getting medical attention. “The mobile clinic service will be able to reach rural areas
and even indigenous communities who often have difficulty accessing clinics and hospitals,” said
Lai.


Dato Lai See Ming 
Commander in chief of St. John Ambulance Malaysia. St. John Ambulance Malaysia started in 1908, initially it was only confined to the British civil servants. In 1938 it was then open to the public. It was much later then the members were given first aid lecture. He said their mission is to prevent sickness and help those in need.  They have expanded their services such as patients transfer and humanitarian services, offering free medical clinic. They are the major players in providing dialytic service. With this mobile clinic, they are able to serve the community on a more regular basis. Last year they have launched the first mobile clinic in Kajang, providing medical treatments to the Orang Asli. 

 The bariatric ambulance was also donated earlier by Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai. “I’ve always paid
attention to healthcare provision and medical issues in the country. I often visit institutions such as
orphanages, old folks home and NGOs to truly understand what are the pressing issues faced by
the nation,” said Lai.


 
“This mobile clinic is crucial in furthering the aim and core purpose of SJAM: to encourage and
promote all works of humanity for the relief of persons in sickness and distress without any
distinction of race, class, colour or creed,” said an attendant at the launch.

bariatric ambulance last year to serve obese patients, the mobile clinic is yet another effort to show
that we are constantly seeking for ways to make life better for all Malaysians.” said Dato’ Yeo Kim Thong. He assures St. John ambulance will always be there for the society.
