Perodua Contributes Medical Equipment To Sarawak General Hospital
Perodua gives back to Kuching medical frontliners working at the Sarawak General Hospital.
Perodua has a long tradition of supporting communities around Malaysia through the good times and the bad. They have always donated to hospitals such as Hospital Sungai Buloh, Hospital Selayang, Sabah Women and Children’s Hospital in Likas, Hospital Shah Alam, Hospital Kota Kubu Bharu, Hospital Canselor Tuanku Muhriz, Hospital Ampang, Hospital Putrajaya and more. Now that the pandemic phase has more or less stabilised and passed into the endemic stage, the Malaysian car company has decided to support Sarawak General Hospital with a contribution.
Perodua donated seven Vital Sign Monitors to the Kuching-based public hospital and also purchased a bunch of hampers for patients and staff at the paediatric ward of the hospital. The overall contribution amounted to about RM84,450.
Here’s the press release with more.
Perodua continues its support to public hospitals by contributing medical diagnostic equipment to the Sarawak General Hospital as well as surprising some of its patients and staff with hampers.
