PETALING JAYA, 3 April, 2020 – AMWAY Malaysia today handed over 250 units of Atmosphere Air Purifiers worth RM1.4 million to the Ministry of Health (MOH) to be distributed to the Emergency and Trauma Units of public hospitals all over Peninsular Malaysia, Labuan, Sabah and Sarawak.
In appreciation, MOH Secretary General Datuk Seri Dr. Chen Chaw Min said, “It means a lot to us that AMWAY Malaysia was early to donate these air treatment systems and quick to respond to our additional request in times of need. The first donation to Hospital Sungai Buloh was in preparation of the impending COVID-19 crisis. Now that we have entered the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) phase, although our healthcare professionals are in high spirits, their health and well-being is always top of mind.
“They have been working long hours at the emergency and trauma units. Such lengthened period of work exposure in these units can lower their immunity against other illnesses and diseases caused by bacteria,” Datuk Seri Dr. Chen said.
Mr. Mike Duong, Managing Director of AMWAY Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei said: “Amway is happy to support Ministry of Health and the frontliners with this additional request for help following first batch that was distributed in March. We are glad we can be of service to meet the needs of the country again in times of such an unprecedented crisis by leveraging on our technology and expertise in air purification.”
“With high quality air purifiers, our healthcare professionals will get better and cleaner air, thus, reducing the risk of contamination during such a crucial and critical phase of mitigating the spread of COVID-19 in hospitals.” -Malaysia World News
