Health and beauty retailer sends supplies to frontliners


Watsons Malaysia continues its contribution to combat the third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic by providing products and supplies to hospitals and healthcare frontliners to help them stem the spread of the virus.

The contribution, which includes face masks, hand wash, shower gel, shampoo and bedsheets, are sent to Hospital Sungai Buloh in Selangor as well as channelled to hospitals in Sabah through the state Health Department.

“The economic uncertainty and the many struggles faced will not stop us from helping and contributing to healthcare service providers during this crucial time, ” said Watsons Malaysia managing director Caryn Loh.

“This contribution is a gesture of our goodwill and gratitude to the frontliners who are diligently working in the fight against Covid-19.

“I am also thankful to our store employees and pharmacists who are on duty during this conditional movement control order to serve communities, ” she added.

In line with nationwide efforts to combat the spread of the virus, Watsons is also giving back to the community by providing support where it is needed.

It is continuing its collaborative effort with non-governmental organisation Kechara Soup Kitchen by providing food and drinks to 230 Orang Asli families in Bentong, Kuala Tahan and Seremban.

“We are glad to lend a helping hand to those in need and with the new normal, we must remember to stay positive in every aspect of our lives and remain hopeful about our future.

“Let us do our part to stay vigilant when in public by wearing a face mask, washing or sanitising our hands frequently and practising physical distancing, ” said Loh.
