MP's bid to curtail the menace

YB Lim Lip Eng, the Member of Parliament for Segambut and his team of officers and volunteers last Friday, August 14, 2009 turned up at the SJK (Tamil) Segambut, Jalan Udang Ketak, Taman Sri Segambut, Kuala Lumpur to do their bid to prevent the further spread of the Influenza A(H1N1) virus.
Young primary school students are vulnerable and within the high-risk groups where the outbreak amongst them could be rapid. Thus, the MP saw it fit to extend the face-mask to these students, especially the poor children, so as to create their awareness to the A(H1N1) pandemic. This was the third school in Segambut to receive the face-mask aid. The other schools where they have supported recently are S.R.K. Desa Segambut and S.R.J.K. (Cina) Khai Chee.
As he and his team have limited financial resources, Mr. Lim hopes the schools, teachers and especially the parents could follow through from this awareness campaign to observe further daily precautions.
However, and for obvious reasons, this Member of Parliament from DAP regrets that he and his team could only distribute the face-mask from outside the school's premise. Withstanding this humiliation, and as always, he has these young children at heart.
