Of the 250 child patients, 200 patients aged below 12 received stationery while the remaining 50 outpatient kids were given prescription glasses.
“While Malaysia is showing positive signs in the fight against COVID-19, we now include other priorities to ensure the quality of life improves in this country,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“In addition to that, our contributions here are our way of thanking the good staff of Sabah Women and Children’s Hospital for tirelessly and selflessly caring for the patients,” he added.
Perodua first engaged with the Sabah Women and Children’s Hospital in 2018, contributing two laryngoscope blade sets and 40 bed pillows, and toys for some 250 child patients.
“Based on feedback from the hospital, we have decided to further assist this health institution to further increase its capabilities as well as contribute directly to the community.
“It is important that Perodua continues its role as a responsible and caring organisation towards the Malaysian community who has strongly supported us over the years,” said Dato’ Zainal.
