EuroCham launched “Breathe Again Vietnam” in August after the toughest COVID-19 outbreaks yet. The campaign aimed to raise significant cash donations from European investors and enterprises both here in Vietnam and across the EU.
The funds were then used to purchase much-needed medical equipment of international standards to support hospitals and frontline health workers.
In total, EuroCham members have donated over 1.5 million EUR to support Vietnam during the pandemic.
EuroCham chairman Alain Cany said, “Even though lockdowns are ending and life is returning to normal, this battle is far from over. The government’s vaccine rollout is protecting more and more people from the worst effects of the virus. However, with cases on the rise, we need to remain vigilant and keep the situation under control.”
He expressed delight that EuroCham members had chosen to support the fundraising drive. “This significant and generous donation will make a real difference to the fight against COVID-19, helping more patients to recover and supporting frontline medical professionals with their life-saving work.”
