#Haze : #MCA to distribute 56,000 facemask to primary schools in Johor, Malacca and Negri Sembilan

The Crisis Relief Squad of MCA (CRSM) will be distributing 56,000 facemasks to primary school students in three States due to the worsening haze condition.

CRSM head Datuk Dr Lee Hong Tee said 36,000 masks would be given to students in Johor as the state is badly hit by the haze.

Another 10,000 masks each will be given to primary schools in Malacca and Negri Sembilan.

"We will start doing this today," he said at a press conference on Friday.

He also urged the public to minimise outdoor activities and wear facemasks if they need to go out.

He added they would send a protest note to the Indonesian embassy next week to register their unhappiness over the republic's failure to tackle this annual problem.
