PPUMCare RUN 2022 #Run For Life is an initiative to raise fund for PPUMcare (formerly known as Patient’s Welfare Fund for UMMC).
The main objective of PPUMCare Fund is to help the less fortunate patients to get their treatment regardless of the type of disease, race, religion and background. This fund is mainly utilized for medical equipments, implants, medical bills, treatment and maintenance cost for loaned equipments.
Currently, PPUMCare's source of funding is dependent on donations from public, corporate, religious organisations and NGOs. Recent years, the amount of donations collected is insufficient to cover the number of patients who need help, this is worsened by the increase in cost and the number of patients fall into the B40 group since the pandemic Covid-19.
