Gibraltar BSN Life Berhad (“Gibraltar BSN”) donated 1,000 pieces of washable and reusable three-layer fabric face masks to the students and teachers of Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Pantai through their social responsibility (CSR) program.
The three-layer fabric face masks were specially produced for Gibraltar BSN and meets the standards set by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Pantai is located in Lembah Pantai and has more than 873 students, most of whom come from B40 families.
Rangam Bir, President & Chief Executive Officer of Gibraltar BSN said, “The use of face masks is the first step in preventing and curbing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. However, we know that the purchase of disposable masks for daily use can be a heavy burden for B40 families, especially for those with many school-going children. We hope our small contribution can protect the children of SK Bukit Pantai when they eventually return to school. ”
Just last month, Gibraltar BSN donated 3,000 pieces of three-layer fabric face masks to the residents of Abdullah Hukum Apartment. Gibraltar BSN’s noble initiative in distributing fabric face masks in the Lembah Pantai area further strengthens the community’s defence against the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the country.
