In these challenging times, with the pandemic and floods causing various disruptions to the country, Honda Malaysia has extended its support to the less fortunate communities in Pahang and Melaka.

As such the company has distributed “Flood Safety Kits” to 500 families who were affected by the floods in Pekan, Pahang, along with face masks and laptops to students this month.

Also benefitting from this are schools in Malacca, where four secondary schools received laptops from Honda Malaysia. These laptops will be handed out to low-income families who lack the means for Home-based Teaching and Learning classes.

Across the South China Sea, the company will also provide assistance to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kota Kinabalu by providing 1,000 face shields for the frontliners there.

“With the new norm, students have no choice but to opt for online schooling. Devices such as computers become a necessity for students to cope with distance learning and this has affected students who have limited access to technology devices. We hope through our contribution the students will have a better study environment and be more motivated to continue their education,” said Honda Malaysia Managing Director and CEO, Mr. Toichi Ishiyama.

He added, “In addition to the laptops, we provided 500 boxes of facemasks to 10 primary schools and 10 secondary schools in Melaka. Each school was allocated with 1,000 pieces of facemasks for students to remain protected and to adhere to the SOPs.”
