KOTA KINABALU: Perodua recently made a visit to the Sabah Women and Children’s Hospital recently and dropped off some items for its 250 underprivileged paediatric patients.
In the mix was a portable flexible video scope set as some school supplies and even prescription glasses.
"Our contributions here are our way of thanking the staff of Sabah Women and Children’s Hospital for tirelessly and selflessly caring for the patients,” said Perodua president and CEO Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
Of the 250 child patients, 200 of them were aged below 12 and were the ones who received the stationery set while the remaining 50 outpatient children were given prescription glasses.
Perodua first engaged with the hospital in 2018 by contributing two laryngoscope blade sets and 40 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,” added Zainal.
