With Mercy Malaysia, through the PETRONAS Volunteer Opportunity Programme (PVOP), we undertook our first international humanitarian mission in 2005 to help Aceh, Indonesia rebuild after the December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The volunteer programme trains PETRONAS employees in humanitarian relief work before deploying them to disaster sites such as Aceh (earthquake and tsunami relief), Nias and Jogjakarta (earthquake relief) and Jakarta (flood relief).
PETRONAS also sponsored a nursing block at Universitas Syiah Kuala’s (Unsyiah) medical faculty in Banda Aceh, Indonesia which was handed over to administrators of the university in September 2006. The new building for the nursing programme helps position the university’s medical faculty to emerge as an important centre of learning in Aceh, as well as train skilled personnel who would ultimately contribute towards raising the standards of health in the province.
