Health talks aimed at helping to curb the A(H1N1) pandemic
STUDENTS in two schools in Cyberjaya were recently given some health tips.
Cyberjaya landowner Cyberview Sdn Bhd, with the support of Lifebuoy, organised the hygiene talks at SK Cyberjaya 1 and SMK Cyber-jaya.
The talks, which were held in a hall shared by the two schools, were attended by 1,600 students and teachers.
The talk for the SK Cyberjaya 1 pupils was conducted by Lifebuoy while that for the SMK Cyberjaya students was conducted by a Health Ministry representative.
“The initiative is one of Cyberview’s many social responsibility projects to benefit the communities in Cyberjaya, and is especially relevant during this time when the Influenza A(H1N1) pandemic is becoming rampant in the country,” said Cyberview Sdn Bhd managing director Datuk Redza Rafiq.
“Our participation in this event is part of the on-going nationwide campaign organised by Unilever (M) Holdings Sdn Bhd in collaboration with the Health Ministry,” said Unilever Malaysia brand manager Lenny Chuah.
At the event, the schools were presented with Unilever’s posters showing the seven-step hand-washing technique recommended by the ministry. The posters were handed over by Redza and Chuah to the school principals.
Following each hygiene talk, there was also a hand-washing demonstration using the glo-germ test with the students and teachers.
