Food and children clothing were among the loads that were trucked to the Ministry of Health on Wednesday from a group of Chinese businesses to help with the measles epidemic effort.
The Princessa Chain Stores, ICY Water Company Ltd, Payless Company Limited, DLY and Treasure Garden made up the donor group.
The assistance is reportedly something the group had talked about for a while.
“This is a tragedy for the whole country and most of the victims of the measles are also our customers and we feel we are involved too,” a group spokesman explained the contribution to the national appeal.
Most of the items donated are children clothes, large towels, pampers, boxes of milk, bottled waters and milk.
Treasure Garden also offered food for the workers and promised to help out with the cooking if needed for the health workers.
