Giftland Group donates face masks to Home Affairs Ministry, Police Force
The Giftland Group has donated $2 million worth of face masks to the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Guyana Police Force, as part of its efforts to aid in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
“With access to these masks, first responders will be equipped to face their daily duties head on. The Giftland Group believes that an emergency situation such as this can only be managed by all of us together,” the Giftland Group said in a release.
As of Monday, Guyana had recorded over 7,300 cases of the virus, with 172 deaths. The Giftland Group stressed the importance of safety for citizens, noting that measures were instituted at the Mall to help guard against the spread of the disease.
“The management of the Giftland Group has remained determined to enforce protection by having administrative controls, regular hand hygiene and environmental surface disinfection, personal protective equipment for all departments and throughout the mall, health surveillance and training by our OHS team, engineering investment by introducing sanitizing chambers strategically at all entrances, limiting contact by social distancing at six feet apart, mandatory temperature checks before entry and mandatory wearing of mask. All of which are cornerstones of the efforts that we have made in keeping our patrons and employees safe,” the Giftland Group said.
