In the spirit of Hari Raya Aidilfitri and the month of Ramadan, Perodua has focused its attention on communities within its headquarters in Sungai Choh, Rawang to make this time of the year more festive, with focus placed on individuals and households in need.
The local automaker has contributed more than RM63,000 between the 9th and 27th of June to several charities and support organizations within the Rawang area to help them with Hari Raya preparations.
In the Sungai Choh area, Perodua donated RM21,000 to seven houses of worship on 9th June. On 26th June, Perodua gave RM20,000 in tithe (or Zakat) to Sekolah Pondok Darulsalam which will be channelled into the construction of a new road leading to the school and improve its overall infrastructure. And on 27th June, Perodua donated an additional RM20,000 to 200 people within the Sungai Buaya vicinity who were deemed worthy of receiving Zakat.
“We are reaching out to as many people as we can, especially those nearest to our headquarters and manufacturing facilities here in Sungai Choh, Rawang,” Perodua President & CEO, Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said.
Datuk Aminar and several members of Perodua management also visited a number of poor families in the area while accompanied by representatives of the Masjid committee to contribute essential goods, easing their burden this festive season. Fifty underprivileged children in the area also received “duit raya” from Perodua.
Additionally, 60 volunteers from Perodua assisted the community in cleaning the masjid premises and to prepare a special porridge dish called “bubur lambuk” for members of the surrounding community.
