Malaysian singer Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza just launched a fund to aid frontliners and people affected by the coronavirus outbreak in Malaysia. The initiative is called Dana Peduli, Kemanusiaan, Prihatin (PKP) Siti Nurhaliza. Speaking to Harian Metro, her staff at Siti Nurhaliza Productions has set a goal of RM50,000 in the Peduli category. As of now, RM2,172 has been raised.

The veteran singer said that the set goal will be increased and will go on as the Movement Control Order (MCO) is prolonged and different types of help will be given out. She is confident that everyone can help fight against the pandemic. The initiative is divided into three categories: Peduli (Care), Kemanusiaan (Humanity) and Prihatin (Concern).
