HEALTHCARE workers who vaccinated the intellectually disabled at two vaccination centres in Ipoh, Perak, were presented with goodie bags for their services.

The goodie bags containing tiffin carriers, face masks, hand sanitiser and cookies were from three non- governmental organisations – Ray of Hope (ROH), Perak Association for Intellectually Disabled (PAFID) and Cornerstone Sanctuary.

ROH and PAFID adviser Datuk Dr Yeoh Beng San said the 190 goodie bags were presented as a show of appreciation to frontliners who had served with outreach teams at the Stadium Indera Mulia and Batu Gajah vaccination centres.

Dr Yeoh, who is also Cornerstone Sanctuary chairman, said the initiative began two months ago.

“We are all touched by the care and kindness shown by the teams who came to ROH and PAFID centres to vaccinate our residents.

“All these healthcare workers took the risk by going out of their way to vaccinate people, especially the special needs folk in our associations.”

He also said that they distributed cookies to 550 healthcare employees at Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital’s emergency department and intensive care unit in Ipoh.

The NGOs, said Dr Yeoh, could extend the project by delivering baked goodies to police stations all over Ipoh.

“We are very grateful to all the helpers and donors.

“The staff and volunteers of ROH have worked tirelessly to bake cookies for this project.

“ROH bakery made all the cookies and sold them to us at cost price,” he added.
