MY AMCHAM CARES COVID-19

AMCHAM is making an impact on the frontlines.

Immediate needs are sometimes hard to address so AMCHAM members across all our sectors are coming together to help deliver to those in need – now. In these unprecedented times, not just in Malaysia we all have to rally together to face a humanitarian challenge. The actions of our members speak the loudest and shows how deeply AMCHAM cares for the country and the communities we engage with every day.

Together we can see our way through this by helping each other. In partnership with the U.S. Embassy to Malaysia, we are getting aid to those on the frontlines in the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic and looking out for the most vulnerable.

MY AMCHAM CARES and AMCHAM’s Corporate Citizenship Community are coordinating with all members, especially those from our Malaysian American Electronic Industry (MAEI) committee to locate and address the needs arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

This section aims to highlight the efforts of AMCHAM's member companies supporting those on the front lines.
