KUCHING: OM Materials (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd, an associate company of Cahya Mata Sarawak Berhad (CMS), has donated RM1.4mil worth of personal protective equipment (PPE) to frontliners.

The PPE consisted of 10,000 disposable protective suits, 10,000 isolation gowns, 5,000 face shields and 5,000 safety goggles.

CMS group managing director Datuk Isaac Lugun and OM Sarawak director Mustapha Ismuni handed the donation to Deputy Chief Minister and State Disaster Management Committee chairman Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas yesterday.

Commenting on the donation, OM Sarawak executive chairman Low Ngee Tong said, “The Covid-19 pandemic is a global crisis of an unprecedented scale, no countries are exempted, and it has taken its toll on Sarawak. We’re keen to assist the Sarawak government in containing the spread of this pandemic.

“Given the limited capacity of current equipment supply chains, we’re pleased to be able to sponsor the PPE as a show of our sincere support for the state government, the front-line workers at Sarawak hospitals, and many others that have been working tirelessly in containing the pandemic.

“We sincerely hope that this small contribution will help ease the burden, and lift the spirits and confidence of front-line workers in discharging their challenging duties to treat Covid-19 suspect cases and patients.”

Commenting further on the donation, Isaac said, “As a leading listed corporate entity in Sarawak, CMS will continue to support the state government’s tireless efforts to contain the Covid-19 pandemic in Sarawak.

“We urge other corporate entities in Sarawak to step forward to lend their support. By working together, we will get through this crisis and emerge a stronger and more resilient state.”
