Honda Thailand is also jumping into the fray to fight against the Covid-19 pandemic by donating equipment worth 40 million bahts (RM 540,000) to various medical facilities in Thailand.
The Honda Khiang Khang Thai Fund was started when the company discovered that various hospitals across the country are in need of help to fight against the pandemic. But instead of just donating funds to the hospitals, Honda Thailand has decided to build medical equipment instead.
With help from the Vajira Hospital, Honda assigned a specialise team and a production line at the Honda Automobile Thailand plant to build 100 negative pressure mobile beds. These beds are designed to prevent the virus/ air-borne particles from travelling, greatly reducing the risk of medical professionals in the front line.
