The ambulances were donated as part of PRC’s programme to provide humanitarian services to the community in conjunction with its 50th anniversary.
PRC president Sandy Soh said the purchase of the ambulances was made possible with donations from various organisations and individuals.

The handing-over ceremony was officiated at by Women, Family and Community Development Deputy Minister Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun at the SJAM Kawasan Pantai Selangor headquarters here yesterday.
Meanwhile, Chew commended PRC for its contributions to the community, including assisting those with special needs, single mothers, orphans and underprivileged students and urged other nongovernmental organisations to work together with the government in improving the livelihood of the rakyat.
“PRC has only around 60 members, but it has contributed a lot to the community,” she added.
