Social Enterprise Ramps Up PPE Production

Kuala Lumpur, October 14 – It’s full steam ahead again for sew X, a transformational enterprise by Dignity for Children Foundation (Dignity), as the number of COVID-19 cases in the country trends upwards.

The upsurge in COVID cases has translated into an uptake in demand for personal protective equipment (PPEs) as organisations gear up their state of preparedness.

Some have turned to social enterprise, sew X, to produce their PPEs. One of six transformational enterprises run by Dignity, sew X workers are primarily students and families from the B-40, migrants and refugee communities within the Sentul area.

In addition to formal education, Dignity engage the students and their families in various types of skills training programmes to increase their livelihood opportunities. Profits and fees from commissioned projects go back to the Dignity for Children Foundation to pay wages, to educate more youths and transform their lives for the better.

Companies interested to bulk order PPEs can do so by contacting sew X at [email protected] or call them at +6018 789 6206. Price depends on quantity of order.  Minimum order is 30 sets. Each PPE set comprises one gown, two boots cover and one head cover.

In addition to PPEs, sew X also tailors customised fabric face masks.
