KUCHING, April 23: Divine Will Society has instantly responded to the call from Kuching South City Council (MBKS) by donating 10 wheelchairs for the Indoor Stadium vaccination centre, which saw an overwhelming number of people turning up for the Covid-19 vaccination.

MBKS Mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng had during this visit to the vaccination centre at Petra Jaya today observed there was a shortage of wheelchairs to cope with the number of senior citizens who turned up for the vaccination programme.

“I managed to get the Divine Will Society to donate the wheelchairs to MBKS for the use of the Indoor Stadium vaccination centre,” he said in a statement today.

The Society, represented by Anthony Bong, had handed over the wheelchairs to Wee at the vaccination centre today.

He thus commended and thanked the Society for their generosity and efforts as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to assist the health authorities and ensure the people, especially the elderly, have access to wheelchairs while waiting for their turn to receive their shots.

Wee also reminded the public and business operators to comply strictly with standard operating procedures (SOP) issued by the State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC).

“Always wear a mask, avoid crowded places, wash hands or use sanitisers frequently, avoid gatherings, practice physical distancing and avoid hand shaking.

“We need to work together to end this pandemic. Be very vigilant and stay safe no matter where you go.

“Please love your family and keep them safe from Covid-19. Play your part as a responsible person and let’s fight Covid-19 together,” he advised. — DayakDaily
