TEMERLOH: Employees from Unitab Medic Sdn Bhd took to the ground and visited a flood relief centre here recently to provide floods victims with free medical check-up as well as medicines.
Some 400 victims at the centre were also given a briefing pertaining to measures to avoid the spread of water-borne diseases, maintenance of good personal and oral hygiene.
The team was led by its senior vice president (operations) Dr Kreeson Vengadeson, vice president (x-ray quality control centre) Dr Christina Angeline Louis and medical officer Dr Hema Apanna.
The humanitarian initiative was a follow-up to the visit by Unitab’s chairman Tengku Arif Bendahara Pahang Tengku Abdullah Sultan Abu Bakar in Paloh Inai, Pekan earlier this month.
Dr Kreeson said the team carried out primary healthcare services for all floods victims including children, senior citizens and the disabled.
He said based on the check-ups, some were found to have been infected with fungal infection, common flu, acute gastroenteritis, high blood pressure, diabetes and body ache.
Toiletries such as tooth brush, soap, sanitiser, shampoo, shaver and mineral water were distributed to the victims.
Dr Kreeson added that the team would visit other affected areas to help out as part of its corporate social responsibility to the community.
