FRONTLINERS in Negri Sembilan fighting the Covid-19 pandemic received a boost when they were presented personal protective equipment worth RM70,000 from Samsung SDI Energy Malaysia.
As a mark of gratitude, company director Dr Oh Seong Por and his team personally distributed the N95 masks, face shields and hand sanitisers to frontliners at their respective work places.
“As frontliners, they are constantly exposed to the risk of being infected with Covid 19.
“We hope they utilise the PPE to protect themselves as they carry out their noble duties, ” he said.
The recipients of the items were from the Seremban Health department, Senawang police station and Senawang Fire and Rescue Department.
Oh said the contribution was also part of the company’s corporate social responsibility programme.
“We have been consistently carrying out CSR programmes and this time, it is to support the frontliners.
“Our appreciation also goes to policemen for helping to ensure public compliance with the ongoing movement control
order to flatten the infection curve, ” he said.
He added that the company, which runs sophisticated and high-speed manufacturing lines throughout the day, has been operating here for the past 30 years.
Oh also thanked the Senawang Fire and Rescue Department, which has been providing sanitisation services to factories around the Taman Tuanku Ja’afar Industrial Area, as well as the surrounding areas.
