KOTA KINABALU: The Kota Kinabalu Red Crescent Association and Central South Coast Region (KPST) St John Ambulance Malaysia received material for making face shields and boot covers from the Centre Point Sabah Management Team via its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme called “CPcares”.
The initiative under the Covid-19 Necessities Relief (CNR) programme, a joint collaboration between the two associations, produces and donates essential materials to the medical frontliners.
It was learned that a total of 15 hospitals have benefitted from the programme in March and the next phase of the programme would involve making personal protective equipment (PPE) and giving support to affected individuals, particularly those in the rural areas.
The “CPcares” programme serves as a positive catalyst for positive change by reaching out to the community since the beginning of the movement control order (MCO). It is an initiative to help the government take care of those who are presently affected by the coronavirus scourge.
For the past three weeks, Centre Point Sabah has donated food packs to various agencies as a gesture of support and appreciation to frontliners on duty as well as varsity students affected by the MCO.
The mall has also been proactively tackling the sanitary matter to safeguard the health of its employees and shoppers.
Incoming shoppers will also need to pass the safety precaution measurement before they are allowed to enter the premises.
Besides that, regular cleaning works have also been intensified, especially on higher frequent points of contact. The operation team has also been making sure to check up in the operating tenants that provide essential services.
In the meantime, Centre Point Sabah provides interactive content to engage with the audience at home via its Facebook and Instagram pages.
Currently, it has online contests – Tik Tok Dance Challenge and Voice Up Singing Contest – with prizes for winners.
