According to OCBC Bank CEO Dato’ Ong Eng Bin, the Bank is committed to assisting its customers, especially those who have been affected twice over by the pandemic and now the floods. “When the floods hit, we made a RM100,000 contribution to Mercy Malaysia for their flood relief programmes involving everyone who has been affected. But we also see the need to render more particular assistance to our affected customers as well. We know some of them might have been badly hit. While we have already been in touch with several of these customers, we encourage those who still need the assistance to come forward immediately,” he said.
