Deputy Foreign Minister donates 150k face masks to Bandar Tun Razak residents

PETALING JAYA: As a reminder to the people to keep adhering to standard operating procedures, Datuk Kamarudin Jaffar has donated some 150,000 face masks to residents in Bandar Tun Razak in Kuala Lumpur.

The Deputy Foreign Minister, who is also Bandar Tun Razak MP, said the third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic and four-figure daily cases are making people worried.

“Malaysians need to stay united as the government is seeking to break the chain of infection. This will work if everyone supports it.

“I hope this donation will more or less lessen the cost of spending among the people in getting themselves face masks, ” he said.

Kamarudin has been extending various aids, such as basic items, groceries, and monetary donations to the underprivileged groups facing various economic challenges in Bandar Tun Razak.

He also gave aid to students from poor families.

The face masks, he said, would be given out to the people in stages, with priority given to residents in PPR flats or government housing, wet markets, public places and the needy.

“The face masks are given out to remind the people of the new normal, which is to put on a face mask whenever they go out, ” he added.

As a gesture of support and appreciation to the police force on duty at the Bandar Tun Razak parliament constituency, 12,000 face masks and hand sanitisers will also be given to them soon.
