As part of the nation’s fight to control the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, Perodua has donated a sum of RM2 million National Disaster Management Agency’s (NADMA) COVID-19 fund.
Perodua has also made donations-in-kind to the Sungai Buloh Hospital, comprising of 300 pairs of rubber boots, 200 pillows, 150 mattresses, 105 boxes of mineral water, and 15 industrial fans.
The contribution was presented to Prime Minister YAB Tan Sri Muhyiddin by Perodua President and CEO Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad. “This war against COVID-19 is our shared responsibility. The funds and items contributed by Perodua are part of our ongoing efforts to ensure Malaysia will recover as fast as it can,” said Dato’ Zainal.
The NADMA-COVID 19 fund was launched by the Prime Minister on 11 March 2020 to aid citizens who were most vulnerable to the impact of the Movement Control Order (MCO), particularly the unemployed, which came into force on 18 March 2020.
Dato’ Zainal has further expressed his thanks to the Malaysian government for their efforts in curbing the spread of the virus. “Perodua, in solidarity with all Malaysians, hopes this pandemic will be resolved in the shortest time and with minimal infections and fatalities. To those who have lost loved ones to COVID-19, we extend our sincere condolences,”
“As for Perodua, we have also directed all our staff, the greater automotive supply chain and our authorised dealers to pay keen attention to their staff’s needs and welfare during this MCO. To this end, we are monitoring the situation closely to ensure that our ecosystem’s livelihoods, like wage, benefits and especially employment, are not impacted,” said Dato’ Zainal
“We are committed to the social distancing measures enforced by the authorities to ensure the spread of the virus is contained,” he added.
If you want to be like Perodua and help the front-liners, you can be staying at home. Yes?
