KUALA LUMPUR: Aset Kayamas Sdn Bhd has contributed 6,000 sets of medical-grade protective suits to frontliners who are fighting tirelessly against the Covid-19 pandemic.

The medical essentials were delivered to 11 hospitals – Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Hospital Sungai Buloh, Hospital Serdang, Hospital Tengku Ampuan Klang, Hospital Kajang, Hospital Banting, Hospital Ampang, Hospital Selayang, Hospital Shah Alam and Hospital Putrajaya in the Klang Valley; and Hospital Jerantut in Pahang.

The property developer’s founder Tan Sri Chai Kin Kong said he was well aware of the shortage of proper protective gear in the current situation.

“We are truly grateful to the frontliners who are dedicating their lives to safeguard the nation from the deadly virus and they deserved to be well-protected. The least that we can do is to provide relevant support.

“Through a trusted contact in China, we managed to source quality yet comfortable protective suits made from anti-static material and are tear resistant.

“These significant necessities were then speedily transported here within three to four days.

“Cargo transportation may be costly but time matters in this situation of life and death,” he shared, adding that the contribution was worth over RM600,000 including logistics.
