Continuing their series of donations to the Ministry of Health, NagaWorld Kind Hearts, the corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm of NagaWorld, has donated their second batch of COVID-19 supplies. The contribution includes a state-of-the-art Nucleic Acid Extraction System and 6,400 Nucleic Acid Extraction Tests. This is a follow up to their initial donation of 5 laptops and 500 bottles of hand sanitiser, bringing the total value of items donated up to$47,400.
“The Nucleic Acid Extraction System is a sophisticated piece of technology that will enable the Ministry of Health to rapidly extract and amplify small DNA samples for testing and detection of COVID-19,” mentioned Pern Chen, Managing Director at NagaWorld. “Together with the testing kits, this will expand and improve the capability of the frontline health workers to conduct quick testing at entry points. We are grateful for the extra hours of work they put into keeping the country safe.
”Upon receiving the equipment from Mr Pern Chen in person, Her Excellency Dr. Youk Sambath, Secretary of State at the Ministry of Health said, “During NagaWorld Kind Hearts’ first donation to us of medical supplies and laptops, we were very excited to hear a pledge of a new Nucleic Acid Extraction System and thousands of testing kits. We are truly grateful that they have followed this through and delivered them here today. Testing for COVID-19 remains one of the most useful tools in curbing the pandemic, and this fantastic new system and all these test kits will provide immense assistance to our daily efforts. On behalf of all Cambodian citizens, we sincerely appreciate this generous donation.”
