Members are expected to subscribe to our mission and objectives, exercise membership privileges in a responsible manner, and most importantly – be sincere.
In reciprocation, we commit to provide members with access to our financial statements, decision-making during AGM and relevant updates on governance of MERCY Malaysia through our Annual Report.
