Happenings: Perodua Gives Back to Society - Medical Equipment and Toys Donated to the Sabah Women and Children Hospital & Shan Children's Home in Perai, Penang
We have many festive seasons. Which can be a blessing to those in need. Perodua and their staff have been busy giving back to society in conjunction with the upcoming festive season so that those in need would feel a little more comfortable in their times of need.
First off, sometime last week, Perodua volunteers swung round to the Sabah Women and Children Hospital bringing with them gifts for children who are being warded and treated as well as much needed medical equipment and supplies for the hospital.
Perodua East Malaysia Sales Regional Manager, En Iskandar Johar presents Miller laryngoscope blades to Sabah Women and Children Hospital Deputy Director (Clinical), Dr Marcus Netto. Standing by are Sabah Women and Children Hospital Head Nursing Supervisor, Matron Diviki MS Tiaranson (left) and Perodua East Malaysia Service Regional Manager, En Mohamad Farid Rabuni.
This was done in celebration of the Kaamatan season and to usher in the holy month of Ramadan. Perodua contributed of two sets of Miller 3 straight laryngoscope blades with handle, worth RM1,800 each, plus 40 bed pillows with PVC covers.
As for the children's gifts, it was accomplished together with the help of Lego Malaysia. Perodua basically brought some smiles to some 250 child patients by giving them the gift of play. Each of them was given a Lego set along with other goodies by the Perodua volunteers.
“Perodua takes this opportunity to wish Kotobian Tadau Tagazo Do Kaamatan to all who celebrate. May this festival bring us all closer together, and we hope for a harvest just as plentiful next year,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer YBhg Datuk (Dr) Aminar Rashid Salleh.
Perodua also made another call to Shan Children’s Home in Perai, Penang with a team of 10 volunteers from outlets in Penang and Kedah. This is the second time Perodua has visited Shan Children’s Home.
The previous visit was on the eve of Deepavali last year where they contributed over RM20,000 in the form of goods and cash. It was back then where Perodua announced its commitment to a three-year Corporate Responsibility programme with the home. So this time, one could say they are back as promised.
Aside from bearing toys and other gifts, Perodua arranged a bread-making class for the home’s 19 children, which was entertaining and educational at the same time. The volunteers also helped with some spring cleaning at the home.
“There are so many ways we can help these children. Material and monetary help is welcome, but both are finite. By engaging the children in educational activities like this, we hope to equip them with skills and knowledge that will benefit them throughout their lifetime,” explained Datuk (Dr) Aminar on why Perodua had chosen to provide something slightly different this time.
