Social enterprise ramps up PPE production


Sew X workers are primarily students and families from the B40 group, migrants and refugee communities within the Sentul area.

It is full steam ahead again for sew X, a transformational enterprise by Dignity for Children Foundation (Dignity), as the number of Covid-19 cases in the country trends upwards.

The upsurge in the number of cases has translated into an uptake in demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) as organisations gear up their state of preparedness.

Some have turned to social enterprise sew X to produce their PPE.

One of six transformational enterprises run by Dignity, sew X workers are primarily students and families from the B40 group, migrants and refugee communities within the Sentul area.

In addition to formal education, Dignity engages the students and their families in various types of skills training programmes to increase their livelihood opportunities.

Profits and fees from commissioned projects go back to the Dignity for Children Foundation to pay wages, educate more youths and transform their lives for the better.

Companies keen to order PPE in bulk can contact sew@dignityforchildren.org or call 018-789 6206.

Price depends on quantity of order and the minimum order is 30 sets.

Each set comprises one gown, two boot covers and one head cover.

In addition to PPE, sew X also tailors customised fabric face masks.
