THE Salvation Army Ipoh Children’s Home is appealing to the public to donate face masks for its schoolgoing children.

The home’s care coordinator Chang Mun Yee said their current stock of face masks was running low and she hoped to get more masks as soon as possible.

The home has 25 children aged between seven and 19.

“With the schools reopened and the face masks compulsory, we need to have sufficient masks to protect the children.

“Each of them takes two masks daily and we use up one box containing 50 pieces per day, ” said Chang.

She said the home also needed monetary donations to support their operational costs, such as utility bills, food and the children’s pocket money, besides buying the requisite face masks.

Answering Salvation Army Ipoh Children’s Home’s call for help was a group of Liverpool Football Club supporters from Ipoh called the Ipoh Kop End, which donated about 40 boxes of face masks, 25 pieces of washable masks and 30 children’s masks to the home.

A representative from the group, Peter Ho, said they wanted to ensure the children had clean face masks for school every day.

“We have many members and thought we should help, ” he said, adding that the group also gave toys to the younger children.
