Perodua recently provided additional support for the ongoing efforts of the staff at the Sungai Buloh Hospital which has been designated a major medical facility to handle COVID-19 cases. The carmaker sent 150 mattresses, 200 pillows and 250 pairs of rubber shoes to the hospital for use in its war against the coronavirus pandemic.
Paying tribute to the frontliners who have been working non-stop to save lives, the carmaker said on its Facebook page: “As a caring, People-First company, we’re committed to supporting our national heroes and heroines. You guys are amazing!”.
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, Perodua has often provided support to hospitals. Last year, it provided the pediatric ward at the Selayang Hospital with medical equipment which included pulse oximeters (oxygen measurement devices) and portable screens.
