The exclusive partner of Geely Auto in Nigeria, Mikano, disclosed this in a statement issued on Tuesday.

According to the company, the development of a ‘healthier car’ differed from specialised medical vehicles as Geely’s products were made for ordinary consumers.

It noted that the cars had comprehensive virus protection that could isolate harmful substances in the air and effectively purify cabin air for occupants.

Mikano revealed that Geely Auto would develop and research new environmentally sustainable materials with anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties that could be used within air-conditioner systems and on frequently touched surfaces such as buttons and handles.

“Geely Auto will make full use of its global Research and Development system and resources as well as cooperate with professional medical and scientific research institutions to set up special project teams to work on the new research,” the statement said.

The President and Chief Executive Officer of Geely Auto Group, An Conghui, stated that auto companies should commit to developing products that helped protect the health of drivers and passengers.

“As the most common mode of transportation, consumers spend a considerable amount of time in their cars, akin to a second home. Only by making healthier products can we meet consumer demand for better quality of life,” he said.

According to Mikano, the move not only added a new dimension to Geely’s understanding of passenger safety but also represented a new development direction for automobiles and safety technologies.

Jack, Jaden, Gabriel, and Martin are year-12 students at an international school in Hong Kong. The hike they will complete is not only daunting in length, but also challenging due to the elevation of 5,053 metres. The students chose the CDC as the sole beneficiary as Jack's younger sister previously attended an early intervention programme there. "This organisation (the CDC) is very close to Jack's heart, as he has a younger sister with Down's Syndrome, and understands the difficulties that families face when raising and educating special needs children to reach their full potential, which is something that every child deserves.

"Money donated to the CDC will go towards programme and service expenses, allowing them to aid even more families, and provide even better care with their top notch teaching specialists and therapists. Furthermore, it is no doubt that under the current COVID-19 pandemic, non-profit organisations like this will be impacted the most, so any money donated will be especially helpful now more than ever. We would really appreciate your support on our journey and cause!"

Dr. Yvonne Becher, the Chief Executive of the CDC, expressed her gratitude to the students for organising this meaningful event, "we are grateful for Jack's and his team's initiative, and are glad that the CDC's work is being recognised and has created such positive value to families throughout the years. Hope everyone can also feel the love and faith that Jack has for his sister, and spread the positive energy to many other children with additional needs in our society."

Based on each child's needs, the CDC's multidisciplinary team offers services such as assessments, early intervention programmes, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and targeted support programmes addressing social skills, sensory processing, attention, behaviour, early literacy and numeracy, and more. The CDC is also committed to supporting parents and professionals through counselling services, outreach screening, and child development training.
