As Malaysia continues its fight against COVID-19, it is essential that everyone is kept safe, especially the frontliners.
In line with this aim, Persatuan Kebajikan Bintang Utara (Star of The North Society), representing Freemasons from the Northern States of Peninsular Malaysia, recently responded to assist the Royal Malaysian Police with the delivery of face shields. The police, being amongst the frontliners, deal with the public daily, rendering them more vulnerable to the virus.
A donation drive was carried out amongst its members to purchase 10,000 face shields.
Members of the society, Dato’ Jeyaraj Ratnaswamy and Arthur Yeong represented the society in presenting 5,000 pieces of the face shields to the Chief Police Officer (CPO) of Perak, Commissioner Dato’ Pahlawan Mior Faridalathrash bin Wahid.
The handover ceremony took place at the CPO’s Office at the Perak Police Headquarters in Ipoh recently.
The society plans to distribute the remaining 5,000 pieces of face shields to the Royal Malaysian Police in Penang and Kedah in the coming weeks.
This contribution is hoped to help ensure that the frontliners are always kept safe whilst performing their duties.
