CAR manufacturer Perodua donated more than 7,700 face shields to 66 primary schools in Putrajaya and Hulu Selangor, for academic and support staff’s use.

“Having contributed some 11,000 face shields to secondary schools in Putrajaya and Hulu Selangor in June, Perodua now extends the same goodwill to primary schools in those areas,” said Perodua president and chief executive officer Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad.

“We do this firstly for the protection, health and well-being of schoolchildren, teachers and support staff; secondly as a token of appreciation to the Government for all their efforts in dealing with Covid-19; and thirdly to give back to the local community we have called home for the past 27 years.”

Perodua has to date distributed over 30,000 face shields in total.

Recipients included the Putrajaya Federal Territory Education Department, Hulu Selangor District Council, district education offices and clinics, Selayang Municipal Council as well as various morning and night market traders in Hulu Selangor and Selayang.

The face shields feature a fogresistant 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.

“This Malaysia Day, Perodua, as a caring and responsible company, asks all Malaysians not to let their guard down.

“Do continue to be cautious and comply with all health and safety guidelines, and we will defeat Covid-19 together as one nation,” said Zainal.
