JOHOR BARU: Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar has offered to help repair the affected building at Hospital Sultanah Aminah which was destroyed in a fire on Sunday (June 28).
“I will get my contractors to start work immediately in collaboration with the Public Works Department (JKR), Fire and Rescue Department (Bomba) and Health Department.
“The cost of repairs will be borne by my foundation (Sultan Ibrahim of Johor Foundation),” he said in a posting put up on his Facebook page.
Sultan Ibrahim added that he was not blaming the Federal Government, but merely wanted the repair works to be done quickly because the welfare of patients must be prioritised.
The Sultan Ibrahim of Johor Foundation (SIJF) is an organisation involved in various charity programmes and initiatives.
On Sunday a fire broke out at the hospital’s Women Medical Ward 1 at 3.08pm, where 24 patients were warded. No casualties were reported.
Back in Oct 25,2016, a major fire occurred at the hospital, killing six patients.
