Singapore, April 6, 2020 – Luye Medical Group today donated surgical face masks to the Singapore Cancer Society to help cancer patients combat the COVID-19 outbreak. Kenneth Foo, Deputy Director of Singapore Cancer Society, received the masks from Kathleen He, Vice President, Group Human Resources and Joelle Lee, Singapore CEO at a simple donation ceremony.
Cancer patients have reduced immunity, so they belong to the at-risk groups for COVID-19. The masks donated by Luye Medical Group will be distributed to patients receiving assistance from the Singapore Cancer Society, to protect them from exposure to COVID-19 during the journey to and back from their treatment. The Singapore Cancer Society is a Volunteer Welfare Organization (VWO), and some of its beneficiaries are from the lower-income segment of the society. These masks will help to meet their urgent needs.
Luye Medical Group Human Resources Vice President Kathleen He and Singapore CEO Joelle Lee said: “COVID-19 is a global challenge. Luye Medical Group donates these supplies to help cancer patients better protect themselves from COVID-19. We will continue to fulfill our corporate social responsibility and spend the difficult time together with the patients.”
Singapore Cancer Society Deputy Director Kenneth Foo said: “Cancer patients are at a higher risk for infection. The masks help to solve the urgent needs of many patients, and we are sincerely thankful to Luye Medical Group for their thoughtful gesture.”
Luye Medical Group has been active in fulfilling its corporate social responsibility. The Group is also providing support to healthcare professionals performing surgical treatment in underdeveloped countries and regions by providing medical supplies or personal training for them.
