A Hundred Unsung Heroes: Paying Tribute to Malaysia’s Frontliners

January 29, 2022

On 18 March 2021, Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC) launched its national campaign ‘A Hundred Unsung Heroes’ – an e-book that chronicles the journey of 100 frontliners who have been at the forefront of the nation’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

A Hundred Unsung Heroes: Paying Tribute to Malaysia’s Frontliners

The e-book delves into the stories of men and women from various walks of life that embodied national unity and integrity in times of crisis. From medical professionals, military workers, non-government organisations to food delivery personnel, each frontliner has sacrificed their wellbeing to go above and beyond to ensure the safety of the nation.

  • “With both of us being frontliners, we decided to live apart until the numbers started declining. For about five months, my husband and I lived apart for the safety of our child and our families. It was a tough decision to make, but it was necessary for the greater good,” – Nabilal Zakaria (Diagnostic Radiographer, Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur)
  • “Despite the challenges, I found this to be a truly life-changing experience. Having a strong purpose gave me strength to continue moving and hope for a better future,” – Dr Lleika Kunaselan (Medical Officer, Hospital Ampang)
  • “While I don’t have a medical background, I knew that my team needed my assistance from operations and management point of view. So, there I was, dressed in my PPEs, ready to step in and help out, where I could,” – Janet Kok (Commercial Development, Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur)
  • “At the end of the day, we need to be kind and help one another through this because everyone is fighting the same battle,” – Abdul Halim bin Aldin (Assistant Security Officer, Sunway Healthcare)

Their stories remind us that our battle against COVID-19 takes a village to combat and we should be vigilant to adhere to Standard Operating Procedures to keep each other safe.

Read their stories, share their tales of dedication and celebrate them with us. Download the e-book at
