Over the past 5 years, the MMF has contributed a total of RM2.4 million which have supported more than 176 patients throughout Malaysia.
On top of that, MMF has also supported a dozen various charitable communities such as old folk’s homes, orphanage, people with disabilities and down syndrome children through financial aid and charity events. Charitable communities are carefully selected and vetted by the MMF Team to ensure that all donations at the charitable communities are put to good use. The MMF Team consists of volunteers within the Bermaz organization; therefore, there are no additional costs involved in MMF’s operations. This will allow all donations received to go where it really matters – to the people in need.
In addition, Bermaz has also introduced the Mazda Privilege Card (MPC) in 2018 which is a tie-in programme with MMF whereby all sign-up fees will serve as funds donated by Mazda Owners. The introduction of MPC has been well received with heart-warming support for its noble cause. Aside from contributing to the society, owners of the MPC can also enjoy a 15% discount on Mazda genuine spare parts and official merchandise, along with a 5% discount on labour charges which is applicable at Mazda showrooms and aftersales service centres operated by Bermaz Motor and Prima Merdu. Donations to the MMF have since continued to increase rapidly thanks to the benevolent contributions of social responsibility conscious Mazda Owners who continues to engage with Bermaz Motor through various charitable programmes
Bermaz believes that one of the good ways to contribute to the society is by partnering with the community and the Mazda Medicare Fund (MMF) is one of the corporate social responsibility projects to bring about a society and enrich the lives of those who are in need. Bermaz would like to take this opportunity to express its gratitude and heartfelt thanks for the unwavering support from our valued customers, business partners, donors and sponsors to the MMF initiative in its mission to help those in need.
