The group has decided to contribute its purified water brand, WATA®, and energy malt, Vitamalt, to people serving in the medical field.
“We had to ensure we were helping as many of our medical personnel across the country as possible. We thought it prudent to contribute products such as Vitamalt, and WATA to provide nourishment for our island’s hospital workers who are working overtime to fight the pandemic in Jamaica,” said Kevon Spence, brand manager for Vitamalt.
Wisynco has identified the Ministry of Health and Wellness Foundation as the beneficiary of the essential items in order to facilitate islandwide distribution to the hospital network.
The company said 15,360 bottles of 500ml WATA® and 7,200 bottles of 330ml Vitamalt beverages are being donated to the Ministry of Health and Wellness Foundation for delivery to the respective health authorities this week.
The first batch of Vitamalt and WATA were donated to the South East Regional Health Authority at the National Chest Hospital on Monday.
Executive director for the Ministry of Health and Wellness Foundation, Courtney Cephas has welcomed the gesture.
“This is a tremendous help to our many front-line staff. We have staff working for 24 hours and many of them working in our emergency operations centres. With this donation we can provide them with beverages that we are all grateful for,” said Cephas.
