PUPILS and staff of three schools in Ipoh have received hand sanitiser and face masks from KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital as part of the latter’s corporate social responsibility initiative.
Apart from receiving the items, the schools — SK Manjoi Satu, SJK(C) Chong Hwa New Kanthan and SJK(T) Gunong Rapat — were also given talks about infection control awareness.
Hospital chief executive Yusmah Salleh said the hospital believed it was important to remind pupils of the importance of hand cleanliness, the correct way of washing hands and infection control measures.
“Since the Covid-19 pandemic, we have contributed to Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun and other relevant agencies. The efforts include loaning them three of our ventilators, medical equipment and supplies.
“We had also contributed food during Ramadan as well as personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontliners, ” she said.
She hoped the public would continue to support efforts by the government to keep everyone safe during the pandemic.
