Mr. Chaovalit Ekabut, Executive Director of SCG Foundation, provided item kits (VHVs Kits) on the foundation’s behalf to Dr. Sukhum Karnchanapimai, Permanent Secretary of Public Health to support the work of village health volunteers (VHVs) in high-risk areas and promote public recognition of these heroes. SCG Foundation presented “VHVs Kits,” a set of items that comes in a bag, to support the COVID-19 prevention and surveillance work of village health volunteers, the backbone of efforts fighting COVID-19 who provide education, follow-up high-risk individuals and keep community members safe.
A VHVs Kits Bag consists of

  1. Infrared thermometer
  2. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  3. Alcohol-based spray
  4. Waterproof face mask
  5. Raincoat for work during rainy season
  6. Medical gloves

All these items are packed in a compact SCG cement bag made to fit for traveling and working on operations assigned by network agencies i.e., Ministry of Public Health or community developers in many areas. SCG employees came together to help pack VHVs Kits.

The SCG Foundation strongly believes that these item kits will enable dedicated VHVs to work efficiently and safely with adequate protective gear and help keep them safe along with all Thai people. The foundation would like to praise them for such action and support them to get through this crisis together.
