KUALA LUMPUR: The Media Prima Tabung Wira Lahad Datu today received RM20,000 each from the Recording Industry Association of Malaysia (RIM) and Malaysian Film Producers Association (PFM).
The fund, which was launched on March 5, has managed to raise RM350,000 in donations from various individuals and organisations nationwide so far.
The fund was set up to help the injured police officers and families of the eight men who died protecting the country in Lahad Datu and Semporna, Sabah clashes last Friday and Saturday.
RIM Chairman Norman Abdul Halim urged the the public to refrain from making insensitive and unpatriotic comments on the Sabah clashes and stressed that everyone should set aside their political differences and stood behind the warriors who fought so hard to defend the nation.
He also urged Malaysians to help donate in any way they can to the fund.
Malaysian Film Producers Association (PFM) president Datin Paduka Shuhaimi Baba echoed the call and said Malaysians must come together to help reduce the burden of the warriors' families who are fighting to maintain peace in the country.
The donations were received by Media Prima Berhad Group Shared Services chief executive officer Datuk Kamal Khalid in Sri Pentas, Bandar Utama earlier today.
