Perodua Gives 5,000+ Face Shields to Hulu Selangor Schools
While the MCO period is coming to an end, the war against COVID-19 is far from over. Schools will be reopening on the 24th of June and the risk of a new wave of cases is very high and very real.
To help mitigate this, Perodua have donated more than 5,000 face shields to 17 secondary schools in the Hulu Selangor district. These are face shields that the company manufactures themself.
They consist of a fog-resistant polyethylene terephthalate visor, a sponge layer that sits upon the forehead, as well as an adjustable elastic band for a tight but comfy fit.
The masks are meant for teachers and support staff but also finishing students in Form 5 and Form 6.
Here’s the press release with more.
Ahead of the reopening of schools on 24 June, Perodua has distributed over 5,000 face shields produced by its associate to 17 secondary schools in the Hulu Selangor district.
“We contribute these face shields for the use of Form 5 and Form 6 students, teachers and support staff as they return to school after a three-month closure brought about by the Movement Control Order (MCO),” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“Although our children, teachers and support staff will no doubt be returning to school wearing face masks, the wearing of face shields would serve as a good extra precautionary measure.
“As a caring, People First company, we believe in going beyond when it comes to safety, especially when our beloved children are involved and particularly those less fortunate,” he added.
The face shield features a fog-resistant visor made of polyethylene terephthalate for optimal visibility, sponge cushioning that hugs the forehead to act as a barrier against airborne droplets, and an adjustable elastic band for a snug and comfortable fit.
Perodua also contributed face shields to the Hulu Selangor District Education Office in Kuala Kubu Bharu.
“We thank the government, especially the Health Ministry, and all frontliners for working so hard to guide our nation through the COVID-19 crisis. Although we have made considerable progress, we hope the Malaysian public will continue exercising caution and complying with all health and safety guidelines,” Dato’ Zainal said.
“Perodua is happy to be contributing to Malaysia’s fight against COVID-19 by continuing to make face shields and we are looking at distributing them to community clinics in the Hulu Selangor district very soon,” he added.
