New head for Mercy Malaysia

Mercy Malaysia founder says goodbye

KUALA LUMPUR: Starting Mercy Malaysia 10 years ago gave Tan Sri Dr Jemilah Mahmood a chance to fulfil her personal dream of being a humanitarian worker.

“If I could reach up and hold a star for every time a person we have helped made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand,” she said in her speech at a media luncheon here yesterday.

It was held to announce that she would be handing over the reins of the non-governmental organisation to vice-president Dr Ahmad Faizal Perdaus.

Dr Jemilah will be leaving for New York this month after being appointed United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Humanitarian Response Branch chief.

She voiced confidence that she was leaving Mercy Malaysia in capable hands as Dr Faizal had stood in for her when she took a six-month sabbatical to study management and also when she went to Gaza and Sri Lanka as a volunteer during the crises.

She said that as a Malaysian, she felt honoured to be given the responsibility and hoped to make her nation proud.

Her role would be to ensure that women and children receive special attention in times of crisis.

“I am grateful that I can help in the field I’m trained in, which deals with women’s reproductive and health issues,” she said.

With a pool of more than 5,000 volunteers, Mercy Malaysia is actively involved in numerous projects in countries like Myanmar, Sudan, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.

It also serves the local community through outreach programmes.

Dr Jemilah said the UNFPA and Mercy Malaysia had been partners for five years on certain projects.

Meanwhile, Dr Faizal said that the organisation would concentrate on generating better sustainability for funds, enhancing human capital development and increasing the awareness and participation of Malaysians for the next three years.

Memang dia pernah kena tembak. Kat Baghdad.

Here's a back story published in Utusan,


Dr Jemilah ni sememangnya datang dari keluarga yang kaya. Tetapi dia memang sangat humble dari dulu lagi. Masa zaman uni pun dia aktif sangat.
