The events of June were very alarming for many people and the government as well. There was a sudden rise of PSI level. The people went crazy over it. The tourism and business sector were affected. The good thing is that things are returning to normal now. We learned our lesson and we pray that as much as possible, haze will not be critical again. But if worse comes to worse, we need a respond system. This is where the WeCare PAck comes in.
WeCare PAck is a respond system initiated by CDC and FairPrice Foundation. With the money gained from donations, the group seeks to give the kits to people. The group only wants to help the government when faced with a crisis. The PAck contains:
We should avoid going out when there is haze but if it can’t be helped, we should at least wear N95 masks. The WeCare PAck includes a N95 mask.
Since it is not advisable to go out, we cannot buy food. Good thing the pack is full of instant noodles, canned goods, biscuits and water. These foods will serve as your salvation.
First aid kit
The PAck will also provide you with first aid kit. The first aid kit will be useful if you have wounds and other conditions.
Yes the skies are clear but we cannot discount the fact that haze will still happen in the near future. When this happens, it is better that we follow the advisory given by the Ministry of Health. We should make it a habit to relentlessly check or monitor PSI levels.
Haze is our own making. When a haze condition is imminent, the WeCare PAcks can make a difference at the end of the day.
