It’s like a rippling effect! A small drop of kindness affects so many that it turned into a humongous tsunami instead. The efforts shown by Malaysians in the spirit of fighting COVID-19 for the past weeks is motivating and inspiring. We have heard of tailors, and even prisoners working hard day by day to provide PPE suits for our medical frontliners. However, we think this scoop should also deserve its own spotlight.
1,600 PPE In TWO Days
In just two days, 1,600 personal protective equipment (PPE) were successfully sewn by six tailors from Kuala Kedah! That’s a lot of PPEs in a short amount of time. However, another 12 tailors who are known to come from Jitra, Pokok Sena and Alor Setar also did their part to increase the numbers.
The volunteers received more than 2,000 meters of material from Cancer Survivors Malaysia (CSM). The CSM chairman, Zuraini Kamal, said that the donations come from their members who are fighters and survivors of cancer. They used the funds to buy quality materials from Sungai Petani, Kuala Lumpur, and Kulim.
“We feel contented to be able to help our frontliners. Especially doctors and nurses who had also worked hard to treat cancer patients around the nation.” She continued, “This is the time that we can repay their favor by donating the PPEs”. According to Zuraini, most of the finished PPEs will be distributed to Kulim Hospital and Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital (HSB). While the rest will be sent to another three clinics.
It’s Better Than Doing Nothing
Aside from PPEs, the association had even prepared food, masks, and hand sanitizers to be donated to the frontliners. Apparently, these tailors volunteered because all of their normal sewing classes was canceled due to the MCO. They insisted that rather than staying at home, it’s better to sew the PPEs for the frontliners. Woah! Those are some determined, skilled tailors! Kudos to all of you!
