In conjunction with the Merdeka month, S P Setia Foundation handed out Malaysian-themed snack packs as a token of appreciation and gratitude to frontliners and volunteers at the S P Setia Covid-19 vaccination centres (PPVs) in Selangor.

The “Setia PPV Heroes” initiative saw more than 2,300 servings of local snacks and desserts distributed to about 1,060 frontliners and volunteers of the Setia PPVs in the central region.

This included Setia EcoHill Club 360 in Semenyih on Aug 17, followed by Setia Eco Templer Clubhouse in Rawang and Setia City Convention Centre in Setia Alam on Aug 22.

“To help Malaysia reach herd immunity and recover the economy at a faster rate, we are proud to be part of the national immunisation programme by contributing our resources which are our six PPV venues across the nation, of which four of them are mega PPVs.

“We are truly thankful and proud of the frontliners and volunteers who have shown the true Malaysian spirit by sacrificing their time to serve the community,” said S P Setia Bhd senior executive vice-president Datuk Seri Koe Peng Kang in a media statement on Aug 23.

Notably, the food was purchased from vendors from the B40 community. One of them is Preeya from Taman Tasik Biru in Kundang, Selangor.

“As a B40 family affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting prolonged lockdown, this initiative by S P Setia Foundation has helped my family in reducing our burden during this period,” said Preeya.

The Setia PPV Heroes initiative was carried out as part of S P Setia’s #Setia4Malaysia month-long campaign in conjunction with Merdeka and Malaysia Day to nurture positivity and hope amid the uncertainties brought on by the pandemic.

Last day of operations at Setia City Convention Centre PPV

Meanwhile, another milestone had been achieved as the mega PPV in Setia City Convention Centre drew its curtain on the vaccination exercise on Aug 22.

The PPV, which started operating from June 7, was provided by its developer, S P Setia and managed by the Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force and the Covid-19 Vaccine Supply Access Guarantee Special Committee. Additionally, they were supported by the combined efforts of public servants, medical personnel and Team Setia volunteers as part of the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme.

Over 500,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccines were administered here throughout its operation.

Speaking at the closing ceremony on Aug 22, Koe thanked the staff and volunteers of the PPV for being willing to take risks and contribute to the nation.

“You are the legacy and a shining example of what Malaysia can achieve together,” Koe said his speech.

Also present at the ceremony were Petaling District officer Datuk Johary Anuar, PPV Setia City Convention Centre manager Dr Sofwan Albar, Petaling health district public health physician Dr Faridah Amin and Brig. Gen. Datuk (Dr) Zulkifli Zainal Abidin.

Johary presented certificates of appreciation to the representatives of the volunteers and agencies involved.
