Dr Norinawaty receiving the contributions from Hope Place.

KUCHING: As Kuchingites prepare for the nationwide movement control order, Hope Place decided to do one last contribution before the two-week restriction starts.

Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) personnel have been busy round the clock doing their best to contain the Covid-19 virus, however with so many people around, this seems to be a tall order. 

Therefore Hope Place has donated several items to SGH, especially to those who are the frontliners.

Eary yesterday morning, Hope Place founder Kelvin Wan and his team went to SGH to hand over some contributions, which were received by SGH deputy director (medical IV) Dr Norinawaty Abang Daud. 

The items included mineral water, biscuits, dry noodles, banquet tables, plastic chairs, laptop computer, printer, blood pressure monitor, icepacks and rubber shoes. 

Some of these items were also contributed by Choice Daily, a supermarket in Stutong here. 

Choice Daily representative Hii King Hui handed over the noodles and mineral water to Wan.

“We saw the urgent need in the hospital and so we hope our contributions would be able to help their operations run faster and smoother,” said Wan. 

“This is also an encouragement and acknowledgement to the Covid-19 medical team who have sacrificed their time and efforts,” added Wan. 

Hope Place would also like to encourage the public to work together to practise good personal hygiene and practise social distancing as much as possible.
