Antabax | ‘Bring Joy Back, Not Germs’ Campaign

Family days out should be fun-filled opportunities for bonding. However, with the rise in communicable diseases such as Hand, Foot & Mouth Diseases (HFMD) the possibility of bringing germs back is increasing.

Antabax, Malaysia’s number 1 Halal antibacterial personal care range has introduced the ‘Bring Joy Back, Not Germs’ campaign to teach simple steps that can reduce the spread of communicable diseases, for more joyous and less germy days-out with the family.

The worries that parents and caregivers have regarding their children and charges contracting HFMD especially in public areas is well-founded. As of August 16, 2018 statistics from the Ministry of Health Malaysia show that 52,393 children have been reported to have contracted HFMD.

Launched in conjunction with MBO Cinema’s Blood Donation 5.0 at Starling Mall, Damansara Uptown, here today, the campaign featured a talk on “5 Things That Parents Should Know About Common Infectious Diseases” by a specialist from Sunway Medical Center, hands-on hand hygiene demonstration by nurses from MAHSA University, interaction with the Antabax mascot, Germbuster, fun quizzes and lots of prizes.

The activities succeeded in delivering information to adults and children on the importance of practising good hand and general hygiene habits, while taking extra hygiene precautions to reduce the spread of communicable diseases especially those that are spread by unclean hands.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 80 percent of infectious diseases are transmitted by touch[1] and the CDC recommends hand hygiene as one of the most important steps to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others.[2]

Mr. Francis Ng, Senior General Manager, Household and Personal Care Department of Lam Soon Edible Oils Sdn Bhd, explained that the brand is carrying out numerous activities aimed at encouraging better hand and general hygiene practices that can support Malaysians active lifestyles.

“Malaysians are increasingly involved in active lifestyles be it sports, socialising, shopping or entertainment such a going to the movies. The challenge is not to bring back unwelcome and harmful germs after a fun day out. Simple steps such as correct handwashing can help to stop the spread of up to 99.9% of harmful germs. Simply put clean hands save lives. That’s the message we aim to drive home,” said Mr. Ng.

Antabax’ product range includes hand soap, bar soap, shower cream, antibacterial sanitizer spray, antibacterial sanitizer gel and antibacterial wipes that provide 24 hour protection against 99.9% of germs.

Antabax has your hygiene needs covered even in situations where soap and water are not available with our range of antibacterial sanitizer spray, antibacterial sanitizer gel and antibacterial wipes. For example before diving into your popcorn at an MBO cinema, quickly wipe your hands with our antibacterial wipes. A simple precaution that can help you bring back the joy of the movies without the germs,” quipped Mr. Ng.  

This is MBO Cinemas fifth annual blood donation drive, and the company is proud to have Antabax as its partner as they are contributing to the conversation on health by highlighting the important issue of hygiene. While the MBO blood donation drive is adding to the nation’s blood banks, preventing the spread of infectious diseases as promoted by Antabax is always better than a cure.

Dr. Anza Elias, an Occupational Health Physician from Sunway Medical Centre provided a comprehensive guide for adults and children on simple steps to reduce the spread of communicable diseases and made the serious topic of good hygiene easily understandable. She took questions from concerned parents and helped them allay their fears, while motivating kids to be cleanliness superheroes.

Nurses from MAHSA lead by Pn. Habibah Binti A Jalil, took the crowd in an energetic yet through introduction to the seven steps of hand hygiene, and the four steps to hand sanitising. They kept time to the catchy Antabax hand hygiene song and had everyone following along. Everyone present had the opportunity to receive one-on-one hand washing instructions from medical professionals.

Mouse mommy and kids MR MH also got to learn the correct steps of handwashing technique to keep our hands clean and hygiene. Mouse mommy does bring along antibacterial hand sanitizer or wipes whenever we go as in convenient and handy.

Jom Donate Blood At MBO Cinemas Blood Donation Drive 5.0 | Blood Connects Us All.

Five years and going strong, MBO Cinemas and St John Ambulance of Malaysia (SJAM) returns with their annual blood donation drive. This campaign which is supported by the National Blood Bank and the Ministry of Health will be held at MBO Cinemas outlets nationwide.

The theme for this year’s campaign – Blood Connects Us All - stresses on the importance of how Malaysians with different blood groups can be united through this single act of selflessness. This drive also aims to inspire Malaysians that share the same goal to help top up the depleting blood supply at the National Blood Bank, which usually tends to drop drastically before festive seasons and school holidays.

Over the past four years, MBO’s Blood Donation Campaign has successfully collected close to 17,000 pints of blood and once again counts on its Malaysian customers and fans to come together as a community and contribute to the cause.

“Despite ongoing efforts to raise awareness for the need for more blood donations and drives around the country, the National Blood Bank is struggling to keep up demands and is facing a shortage nationwide.” said MBO’s General Manager of Marketing and Sales, Ms Jamie Tiong.

“On that note, we are calling all Malaysians and Internationals to help us fill the blood banks for this year’s blood donation drive. Through their help and support, we are hoping to achieve the collection of 6,000 pints of blood at 25 MBO outlets nationwide.”, added Ms Jamie Tiong.

According to Dr Noryati Abu Amin, Director at the National Blood, the demand for blood has drastically increased over the years because of three main factors, namely the rise in the number of patients, the increase in the development of medical technology and the increase in the availability of speciality hospitals in Malaysia.

Blood banks need a constant supply of donations, as red blood cells can only last a maximum of 42 days, while platelets can only be kept for five to seven days. Plasma can be frozen and if kept in the right conditions, can keep well for years. The short lifespan of some components is the reason why the blood bank is constantly in need of supply. Also, despite a 25 percent of the population having blood type A, it often runs short in the blood bank.

“Thanks to organisations like MBO Cinemas for their continuous commitment to organise an annual blood donation drive, 82,619 new donors have joined the cause nationwide as compared to 76,213 new donors recorded in 2016. This is a positive sign as the patients’ needs are being met under the Ministry of Health”, added Dr Noryati Abu Amin.

An important message the campaign also tries to highlight is the importance of giving blood regularly so that the blood stock can be kept at sufficient levels before an emergency arises. Only 2.2% out of 30 million Malaysians donate blood – which is a far cry from the 3.5% – 5% recorded in more developed countries. On average, government and private hospitals in Malaysia need to prepare around 2,000 bags of blood to support the needs of 1,000 patients per day.

“We are glad to co-organise this event with MBO Cinemas for the fifth year now. Over the years, we have seen many new faces and continue to receive support from the regular donors who never fail to come forward. We have faith that this annual collaboration will continue for years to come,” said Dato' Lai See Ming, Commander-in-Chief at St. John Ambulance of Malaysia.

In conjunction with St John Ambulance’s 110th Anniversary in Malaysia, a free CPR training and demonstration exercise will be conducted in tandem with the blood donation drive to celebrate their formation in Malaysia which stretches back over a century. “Through this CPR training and demonstration exercise, we can educate members of the community on the proper way to perform CPR, so that they are capable of providing help and potentially saving the life of a person in need of CPR, especially of a loved one.”, added Dato' Lai See Ming.

As a sign of gratitude to the donors, MBO will provide each donor with an exclusive goodie bag which includes MBO movie vouchers, snacks and a variety of vouchers from the generous sponsors of this year’s blood donation drive.

The nationwide blood donation drive will be held on the 18th & 19th of August, from 11am – 6pm with the exception of Kedah and Johor where the dates will be the 17th & 18th of August from 11am – 6pm.
