Perodua has donated RM300,000 to Nurul Yaqeen Foundation in support of the foundation’s Caring Heart Project: School in Hospital. The amount is for two years. Perodua MD Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh presented the mock cheque to the Deputy Prime Minister’s wife Puan Sri Datin Noorainee Abdul Rahman, who is patron of Nurul Yaqeen Foundation today.
“We empathise with all children who require long term treatment at hospitals and as a result have to miss their school lessons and examinations. This project will ensure that the children undergoing treatment at the hospital will not miss out on their school lessons and their preparations for the public examinations. This is in line with Perodua’s slogan Because You Matter Most,” Aminar said.
The pilot project was launched last year at Hospital Kuala Lumpur, and it will later be extended to other major public hospitals. The foundation, with the cooperation of the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education has agreed to train 100 facilitators to ensure the children obtain continuous guidance and optimise their time during the school holidays. Aminar said Perodua will also send volunteers to help with the project.
