KUCHING: Volunteers who are on duty at Stadium Perpaduan vaccination centre (PPV) in Petra Jaya here received contribution from Hope Place Kuching recently.

The charitable non-governmental organisation said there are over 200 volunteers who are helping out in the mass vaccination programme at the centre.

“The volunteers are under the Malaysian Vaccine Support Volunteers (MyVac) programme. The programme is jointly established by the Ministry of Health; Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation; Ministry of Youth and Sports, and Ministry of Higher Education. 

“As a token of appreciation to all frontliners, we have contributed 3,500 medical face masks, 15 boxes of instant cup noodles and two electrical kettles,” it said in a statement on Monday (June 14).

Hope Place also commended the volunteers for their efforts in making the Covid-19 National Immunisation Programme a success.

“These volunteers come from all walks of life and they are mostly the youth. They are encouraging the public to register themselves for the vaccination by giving their time and energy to help in any way possible,” Hope Place added.
