Emergency starter kits containing three N95 masks were distributed to the AWWA Community Home for Senior Citizens on Thursday by staff volunteers from Singapore Power.

The distribution of the kits, which also contain instructions on how to wear the masks and a list of emergency contact numbers, is an initiative of Temasek Cares in partnership with Singapore Power and Singapore Post.

The AWWA Community Home is the first of 144 charities that will be receiving some 17,000 starter kits set aside for charities. This is on top of the 1.2 million kits that all households in Singapore will receive by Monday.
