HCMC – Hoiana Integrated Resort, in collaboration with the program, “Help Vietnam Breathe”, of VinaCapital Foundation (VCF), donated two ventilators and 750 sets of Level 3 personal protective equipment to the health authority of Quang Nam Province on September 14, aimed at supporting the local authorities and residents to fight against the current coronavirus wave.
The Quang Nam Department of Health will allocate this medical equipment, worth a total of nearly VND575 million (US$25,000), to areas that have an urgent need.
“Joining hands with the local authorities to fight Covid is the corporate social responsibility of Hoiana. We are proud to have accompanied the Quang Nam government across all levels in the battle against Covid for the past two years,” said Steve Wolstenhomes, CEO of Hoiana Integrated Resort.
“Following our donation of one Covid testing machine worth over VND1.4 billion to Quang Nam Province, the activity with VCF this time is Hoiana’s latest support to the provincial healthcare system to better control the pandemic, reduce the mortality rate and progress toward curtailing the disease, ensuring a safe and healthy living and business environment as soon as possible.”
Rad Kivette, CEO of VCF, said, “VCF is proud to partner with the Hoiana Integrated Resort to support people in need and help save the lives of Covid-19 patients in Quang Nam Province during these challenging times. With the cooperation of the Hoiana Integrated Resort, VCF is able to protect the health and safety of frontline medical staff and preserve the lives and livelihoods of those with serious Covid-19 complications. We hope to receive more cooperation and contributions from the community to be able to donate more essential equipment, ensure everyone’s safety and join forces with the health system to leave no one behind in this battle.”
Hoiana Integrated Resort has greatly contributed to many of VCF’s programs since 2016. This Covid emergency donation is a testament to Hoiana’s continuous commitment in accompanying VCF to improve the country’s medical capacity as well as to bring urgent assistance to the most vulnerable people during the pandemic.
“Help Vietnam Breathe” is a program implemented by VCF to raise funds to purchase essential pandemic-fighting medical equipment including ventilators and personal protective equipment for hospitals treating Covid patients and thousands of frontline healthcare workers as the pandemic prolongs and the number of new Covid cases increases dramatically.
