With the increasing concerns over the widespread of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD) among children, Antabax, Malaysia’s leading Halal anti-bacterial personal care brand is partnering with R.E.A.L Kids, the country’s largest owner-operated kindergarten chain with 45 centres and 3,600 students nationwide by equipping students, teachers and staff with Antabax care kits for on-the-go personal hygiene, and creative education materials to raise understanding of the dos and don’ts of HFMD.
HFMD is a very contagious common illness which typically affects children below 5 years of age, although adults and older children can also be infected. The disease is highly transmissible, and childcare settings are the most common places for HFMD to be contracted because of toilet training, diaper changes, and the fact that children often put their hands into their mouths.
“Antabax is committed to providing regular education and continuous access to strengthen healthy and hygenic habits, and together creating a healthier and cleaner community. Good personal care, good hygiene especially hand hygiene may help prevent the spread of HFMD. Through Antabax product solutions, we trust that parents and teachers play an important role in teaching children to wash or sanitise their hands frequently before and after eating, as well as before and after going to the toilet, after group activities or touching suspect surfaces, and avoid sharing or touching other children, sharing water bottles, food or toys,” says Chua Su Fee, Marketing Manager from Antabax. She further remarked that this activity is only the beginning of Antabax’s long-term commitment to continuously contribute and bring a positive impact on Malaysian families.
Antabax will be sharing educational materials and tips on reducing the spread of HFMD, which will be distributed to all R.E.A.L Kids students nationwide. Content includes creative discussion and activities sheets for students developed by teachers and caregivers on reducing the risk of HFMD. The brand continues its role as an enabler to encourage parents, students and teachers to get back in action by emphasizing good personal hygiene practices, which is in-line with its #BaxInAction theme.
The brand will be contributing its products including antibacterial sanitizer spray, bar soap and antibacterial wipes which able to kill 99.9% of germs and give parents peace of mind about their child’s hygiene.
