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.
