KPS contributes PPE to frontliners at Kelana Jaya Health Clinic

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 11 -- Kumpulan Perangsang Selangor Berhad (KPS) contributed medical supplies in the form of personal protective equipment (PPE) to the Kelana Jaya Health Clinic (KKKJ), near here, last Thursday.

In a statement, KPS said it contributed RM44,550 worth of PPE including 20,000 pairs of disposable latex gloves, 5,000 surgical masks, 200 face shields, 245 litres of hand sanitisers and 188 sets of PPE suits along with 20 stainless steel Q-up stands, 20 plastic chairs and three thermal scanners to improve the clinic's facilities.

Head of KKKJ, Dr Nik Mazlina Mohammad said the contribution was timely as the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in Klang Valley had rendered a high demand for PPE, especially for the staff who worked in the red zone areas and those involved in treating emergency respiratory cases.

KPS associate director of Investor Relations and Strategic Communication, Mohd Fauzi Mohd Ghazali said this was a joint effort between KPS and the local community.

"It is hoped that our contribution will help address the shortage of PPE, as these are essential disposable items for COVID-19 screening," he said.

The statement said, KPS through its sustainability initiatives had allocated RM2 million in funds to address the economic, environmental and social impacts on its stakeholders, especially members of the community.

Its initiatives for 2020 comprises four main pillars, namely Education Development, Entrepreneurship Development, Community Development and Environment, and Safety and Health.
