With the number of new/active Covid-19 cases on the rise, Perodua has stepped up its public service efforts in the Hulu Selangor and Selayang municipals by distributing additional face shields.
The company has distributed 10,000 face shields to the District Health Office, dental clinics, and even to morning and night market hawkers in Hulu Selangor. Perodua also distributed the face shields to the Selayang Municipal Council’s Licensing and Enforcement Departments. These face shields will also be distributed to hawkers in the district by the municipal.
“Perodua’s face shield contributions is the company’s way of giving back to the surrounding communities who have supported and made us feel at home for the past 27 years,” Perodua President and CEO Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad said.
“We have given out over 21,000 face shields to date – we hope they will be worn conscientiously and diligently by those going about their daily duties, bravely continuing to give all of us the services, healthcare and provisions we need,” he added.
The effort follows after the 11,000 face shields Perodua distributed to secondary schools in Putrajaya and Hulu Selangor. These face shields consist of a fog-resistant visor made of polyethylene terephthalate for optimal visibility, a sponge cushion for the forehead, and an adjustable elastic band for a comfortable fit.
“We are not out of the woods yet in our battle against COVID-19. We hope Malaysians will continue to adopt and adapt to the new normal by exercising caution and complying with all the government’s health and safety guidelines,” said Dato’ Zainal.
