Needless to say, the Covid-19 pandemic has upended all aspects of life. The economy in the third quarter this year has ground to a standstill, supply chains have been disrupted, numerous industries like travel and aviation have been paralized, and more painfully, tens of thousands of lives have been lost. In the grim months of the pandemic, numerous responsible corporate citizens have stepped up their efforts to jointly shoulder the burden, and the real estate developer Dat Xanh is one of them.
Without generous benefactors like Dat Xanh, the country would still struggle against the pandemic.
With a desire to improve the situation and bring the pandemic under control, Dat Xanh has conceived ways to turn its love and responsibility to the society into practical activities.
Aware of the sufferings endured by Covid-19 patients and the dire need for medical equipment, Dat Xanh has donated nearly 300 high flow oxygen ventilators and two portable X-ray machines to six southern localities– HCMC, Dong Nai, Binh Duong, Binh Phuoc, Long An and Ben Tre – facilitating the treatment of Covid-19 patients there. These localities have recorded large numbers of Covid-19 cases or are located on gateways to the Central Highlands and southwestern regions.
Thanks to Dat Xanh’s prompt support, medical workers have had additional weapons to fight the pandemic and many lives have been saved.
The group’s leaders have been hauntingly worried about the difficulties faced by frontline forces, medical workers and Covid-19 patients who have confronted new Covid-19 waves. With its determination and pioneering spirit, Dat Xanh has quickly started talks with its foreign partners and transported medical equipment to Vietnam. Within less than a fortnight, the medical equipment has been handed over to the six localities so that they could promptly distribute them to healthcare facilities within their precincts.
Binh Duong Province Chairman Vo Van Minh, at a ceremony to receive the equipment, said that the province was in dire need of specialized medical equipment, especially ventilators. He expressed his appreciation of Dat Xanh for presenting 50 high flow oxygen ventilators to the province, encouraging the local medical forces and the province as a whole to overcome these tough days.
Dat Xanh Chairman Luong Tri Thin said the long-established real estate developer always wanted to bring not only warm homes and modern facilities but also humane values to the community.
Therefore, the group has paid much attention to corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities, which have demonstrated its responsibility to the community but also spread its compassion and love. “We wish the country would win over the pandemic soon,” he said.
To date, Dat Xanh has donated more than VND60 billion to the fight against the pandemic nationwide, including VND23 billion contributed to the Covid-19 vaccine fund, VND5 billion donated to the Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee of Bac Giang Province, over VND30 billion worth of medical supplies, including ventilators and X-ray machines, VND500 million for the supply of oxygen dubbed Oxygen ATM program of the Vietnam Young Entrepreneurs’ Association, VND800 million for the pandemic fight in Duc Hoa District of Long An Province and Cam Lam District in Khanh Hoa Province, and necessities for residents and frontline workers in many provinces across the country.
A branch of Dat Xanh in the northern region has presented food and necessities to underprivileged households and offered necessary products to locals at no charge. Meanwhile, the group’s branch in the central region has contributed VND1 billion to the national Covid-19 vaccine fund, VND1 billion to the Covid-19 vaccine fund of Quang Binh Province and another VND1 billion to the Covid-19 vaccine fund of Danang City. The branch has also donated medical equipment worth hundreds of millions of Vietnam dong to the Centers for Disease Control of Quang Binh and Danang.
Dat Xanh Group’s southwestern branch has donated 500 protective suits, 12,500 medical face masks and other necessities to frontline workers in Can Tho City’s Ninh Kieu District.
In addition to supporting frontline forces, Dat Xanh has ensured jobs and living conditions for its employees as a way to ease pressure for the authorities.
Commenting on the group’s donations in cash and in kind in the fight against the historic pandemic, a Dat Xanh representative said the group wishes to pursue a new chapter in the fight against the pandemic, which is about creating the new normal with happy homes and a prosperous and peaceful future.
