National and Malaysia Day Celebrations!
‘Malaysia Prihatin’ is directly translated into Malaysia Cares. ‘Malaysia Prihatin’ is the chosen theme for this year’s National Day and Malaysia Day celebrations. This theme was chosen in recognition of the virtues that have been shown by Malaysians in facing the trials and tribulations posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Malaysians have shown to be caring, determined and patient in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The government prioritised the welfare of the people and this is shown through it’s ‘Prihatin’ Initiative. This initiative is an economic stimulus package which will help Malaysians get back on their feet during this difficult time.
