UMP Holdings personnel prepared 1000 face shield for frontliners

Concerned about the need for face protection for health and frontline workers struggling to combat the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak especially in Pahang state, UMP Holdings Sdn. Bhd. (UMPH), which is a subsidiary of Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP), lent a helping hand by providing 1,000 face shields at its office building on April 13, 2020.

According to Project Manager, Mohd Hairuddin Idris, 1,000 face shields were provided to support the state government's initiative under the coordination of the Pahang State Secretary's Office for distribution to frontliners at the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH) who still needed supplies in the state.

β€œAbout 30 volunteers from UMP Holdings and the Group worked together to provide this disposable face shield.”

β€œBy using the production line concept, the first station will perform sponge cutting, followed by rubber cutting and patching, and finally packaging.”

"We also take safety precautions against our employees with social distancing and regularly use hand-sanitizers," he said.

He added that this initiative is one of the many forms of community service at the moment as each company and individual plays an important role in relieving the burden of frontliners in the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Earlier, UMP Holdings also partnered with the UMP Alumni Association and UMP Graduates to donate mineral water for the frontliners.

Among those who received the donations were the Gambang Police Station and the authorities involved in the roadblock operation around Gambang.

The mineral water is distributed weekly along with the supply of 50 bottles of 500 ml hand sanitizers to ensure adequate supply and consistency of need.
