KUCHING, June 23: Kuching South City Council (MBKS) in collaboration with various businesses, associations and the generous public has pledged to deliver bottled drinking water supplies on a weekly basis as part of efforts to support frontliners and volunteers at vaccination centres (PPVs) at Kozi Square, Covid-19 One-Stop Centre (OSC), Indoor Stadium and Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK).

MBKS Mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng said that Kozi Square PPV has been added to the list and it will be receiving bottled drinking water deliveries on a weekly basis after receiving a request from the volunteers.

“Kozi Square PPV will get 50-60 boxes every week while Covid-19 OSC, Indoor Stadium and BCCK will be supplied 60-70 boxes weekly.

“All the bottled drinking water will be sponsored by the public and private sector,” he said in a statement today after delivering food and drinks to Kozi Square PPV yesterday.

CLZ Resources & Hi-Bee Resources donated bottled drinking water and Hup Seng crackers, Wan Li Wan donated 120 boxes of bottled water and Sarawak Chawan Association donated 200 packets of fried bihun.

After handing over the donated food and drinks, Wee also took the opportunity to visit the Kozi Square PPV which he commended, saying that the operation was well organised and running smoothly.

“We urge people coming in for their Covid-19 vaccination to always follow the instructions and adhere to SOP (standard operating procedures) while waiting to be vaccinated.

“Please come according to the appointment date and time given so as to prevent any problems during registration,” he advised.

Wee also reminded the public to be patient with the frontliners and volunteers as they have been working tirelessly to ensure everyone attending the vaccination programme were well taken care of.

“The volunteers are very helpful and anyone who is unsure of what to do can always approach them for help. They are there to assist the public,” he added. — DayakDaily
