JOYCARE Charity Campaign #6: Mercy Malaysia
Malaysian Medical Relief Society, namely MERCY Malaysia, is a non-profit organization dedicated to deliver medical assistance, sustainable health-related development, and risk reduction for underserved communities, in both crisis and non-crisis situations. The organization has offered humanitarian aid and programs in over 30 countries during the last two decades. MERCY Malaysia has also grown into a full-fledged humanitarian organization, providing a wide range of services ranging from disaster relief to rehabilitation and recovery, mitigation and prevention, and disaster preparedness.
JOYLEE is delighted to be part of their wonderful team that make great contribution to the society.
We have donated 200 pieces of Medical Pro Fingertip Pulse Oximeter to MERCY in the month of December 2021. They will be distributed to Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) Humanitarian Clinic located in Ampang and Kajang.

QFFD clinic is operated to provide healthcare needs of refugees in Malaysia, including general medical check-ups, outpatient treatment, care for pregnant mothers, vaccination and healthcare education programs at minimal cost. Runs by three leading medical relief non-governmental organizations (NGOs) - MERCY Malaysia, Islamic Medical Association of Malaysia and Malaysian Relief Agency, with the support from the United Nations Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
This tripartite initiative between the Malaysian government, NGO partners and international agency works toward a common goal of providing and taking care of the health of refugees and migrants from all over the world, primarily from Myanmar, Afghanistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka that lived in Malaysia. Not only that, it aims to ease healthcare burden of the Malaysian healthcare system in the long run. With this clinic, they can prevent disease complications and over-crowding at government hospitals, as well as effectively address potential public health problems such as disease outbreaks.
As we’re bringing more care and joy to the society, we believe no one should be left behind, regardless of their identity and races. We believe our Medical Pro Fingertip Pulse Oximeter will not only assist healthcare provider to better monitor their health, but also acts as a kind of appreciation for these refugees who have been contributing to Malaysia over the decades.
