The Year in Review
The year 2020 was one of recalibration.
At Yayasan PETRONAS, we knew we had the stewardship and resources to respond strategically in the places others could not, and we forged ahead to meet the needs of healthcare workers, the healthcare system and high-risk groups. At the same time, we continued to soldier on with our other projects to benefit society, transform lives, and plough back into the environment.
What followed was a display of how the human spirit can adapt and innovate to meet unspoken challenges in a time of shared adversity.
Almost half (48%) of the RM47.25 million funds were diverted to COVID-19 relief efforts, while 43 per cent went to grants, donations and running programmes under the Education, Community Well-being and Development and Environment pillars. Other funds went to support services such as administration and communications.
