Hygiene comes first: Dr Kreeson handing out bags of toiletries to the residents affected by the recent floods.

EMPLOYEES from Unitab Medic Sdn Bhd took to the ground and visited a flood relief centre in Mentakab, Pahang recently to provide flood victims with free medical check-up and medicine.

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.

They conducted primary healthcare services for about 400 victims housed in a relief centre in SK Batu Kapur, Mentakab.

The humanitarian initiative was a follow-up to the visit by Unitab chairman Tengku Abdullah Sultan Abu Bakar in Paloh Inai, Pekan earlier this month.

The flood victims including children, senior citizens and the disabled were also provided with free medicine.

The doctors also briefed the flood victims about measures to be taken to prevent the spread of water-borne diseases as well as maintenance of good personal hygiene and oral hygiene.

The company also distributed toiletries including toothbrushes, soap, sanitiser, shampoo and shaver kits.

Dr Kreeson said the patients were found to have fungal infection, common flu, acute gastroenteritis, high blood pressure, diabetes and body ache.
