OBI Holdings is a Japanese company based in Singapore. The COVID-19 crisis saw the company step up to help the local Singapore community, donating over 200,000 safety masks to help keep the people of Singapore safe.
OBI HOLDINGS PTE LTD (head office located at 83 Clemenceau Avenue, #15-01 UE Square, Singapore 239920, President/CEO: Kaname Nagayama). OBI Holdings, considering the continuing situation in Singapore regarding COVID-19, have been happy to help, importing two hundred thousand surgical masks from Japan. These masks have been donated to KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, the largest hospital in Singapore, the Migrant Workers' Centre (MWC), and foreign workers’ support NGO, Itsrainingraincoats. The mask donations have been met with enthusiasm.— The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged the nation’s preparation in many ways including the availability of Personal Protective Equipment. While Singapore has been well-prepared, some companies have also done their best to help the common good. One highlight of this is Japanese owned company based in Singapore
In Singapore, even in mid-May, the spread of COVID19 has continued in some of the expats’ residential areas, and thus, the government has mandated the wearing of masks for all citizens while outside their homes, to prevent the spread of the virus. Due to this situation, OBI Holdings foresaw that shortages of masks would likely continue. This motivated and inspired the company’s CSR team to import masks from its native Japan to donate to the aforementioned groups to help alleviate shortages.
The team at OBI Holdings were very pleased to be able to help.
“Although we had never experienced importing items before, and we had experienced a few problems trying to understand the required procedures and documents, the transportation company and Singapore’s Health Sciences Authority understood our intentions and provided immense help in realising this endeavour,” commented CSR working team leader, HR manager Ms. Minori Anzai. “We hope that our actions will help support Singapore, the country where we live and love so much, and its foreign workers' community.”
