KUALA LUMPUR, 25 January 2021 - Secretary General, YBhg. Dato’ Sri Muez bin Abd Aziz broadcasted on Assalamualaikum TV Al-Hijrah talk show to discuss regarding the directions of the Ministry of Defence for the year 2021 in preserving the Welfare of ATM Veterans this morning.
In the talk show, YBhg. KSU has focused on two main objectives which are the improvement in terms of capabilities and readiness of ATM as well as the welfare of ATM’s staff and veterans.
In line with the increase in operating expenditure allocation to the Department of Veterans Affairs (JHEV) ATM that was presented by the Government to the Ministry of Defence, JHEV ATM has provided several incentives to ATM Veterans such as outpatient health card to obtain health services in private hospitals / clinics for veterans and enhancing the CAKNA VETERAN ATM program by doing welfare visits and delivering help to them accordingly.
To support this ambition, YBhg. KSU also called upon the community to continue donating funds to ATM veterans through the Tabung Pahlawan Campaign which is still active. Donations received will be channeled entirely to ATM Veterans in need regardless of rank, race or religion.
