Coway Contributes 101 Air Purifiers to Mega Vaccination Centres


In efforts to bolster Malaysia’s National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme (NIP), Coway Malaysia recently contributed 101 units of Coway air purifiers, worth RM312,130 in total, to four Vaccination Administration Centres (VACs) in the Klang Valley. All of these centres are managed by the COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) under the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI).

This corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative is in line with Coway Malaysia’s aim to provide clean and healthy air for all people in Malaysia, on top of serving customers who already have Coway air purifiers in their homes. This initiative aims to provide better air quality and peace of mind to the public who will be going for their vaccination appointments, as well as to the frontliners and volunteers tirelessly working at the centres to ensure smooth vaccination process.

The four mega vaccination centres are Bangi Avenue Convention Center (BACC), Ideal Convention Centre (IDCC), Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) and National Stadium Bukit Jalil.

In addition to the contributions above, Coway Malaysia has also sponsored three air purifiers and three water purifiers to the COVID-19 Assessment Centre (CAC) Bandar Tun Razak in Cheras, with a total value of RM21,210. This will help to provide clean and better air quality especially in a high-risk area like the assessment centre.

Kyle Choi Ki Ryong, Managing Director of Coway Malaysia said, “At this point, we believe that every single act of help, no matter how big or small, makes a long-lasting impact in the long run. This is in the spirit of our ‘We Stand As One’ campaign, which demonstrates our commitment to stand with Malaysians during these tough times — we are stronger together, and that will help us all fight this pandemic for a better Malaysia.”

Choi added, “With careful research by Coway’s R&D team, Coway’s air purifiers are equipped with HEPA filters and designed to not only purify indoor air, but to also rid it of contaminants and pollutants from mould and mildew, fine dust and dust mites, viruses and germs, harmful gases, as well as bad odours. More than ever, indoor air quality is extremely important and it is something which cannot be compromised for health reasons.

The above is one of many Life-Changing initiatives under Coway’s long-term CSR commitment to the Malaysian community nationwide. Coway was one of the first multinational corporations to leap into action at the start of the pandemic last year in support of frontliners and the country, with contributions worth about RM2 million by far. These include a cash donation of RM300,000 to the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) COVID-19 fund; hundreds of air purifiers, thousands of masks and sanitisation kits to MOH, Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM), GrabFood riders and customers; plus, this latest contribution to CITF vaccination centres. In addition, Coway’s Happy Water Project CSR initiative has helped make clean water accessible to almost 1,000 Orang Asli families, as well as underserved communities, over the past 5 years.
