ExxonMobil has contributed $35,000 to Operation Smile Vietnam (OSV) and VinaCapital Foundation (VCF) to promote healthcare and dental programmes in Quang Nam and Quang Ngai provinces.
In August, ExxonMobil contributed $10,000 through OSV to implement a dental care programme for students of five primary schools in Quang Ngai province: An Vinh 1, An Vinh 2, and An Hai primary schools in Ly Son island district, as well as Binh Chau 1 and Binh Chau 2 primary schools in Binh Son district.
A total of 1,533 students were examined and advised on dental care. Among them, 415 children were treated for oral diseases with 1,068 procedures by leading doctors from the National Hospital of Odonto-Stomatology, Ho Chi Minh City.
Through VCF's Survive to Thrive programme, ExxonMobil has also granted 17 modern and essential medical items for newborn care. The company also organised an intensive two-day training course on neonatal emergency resuscitation for the medical staff at two health centers in Dong Giang and Tay Giang districts, Quang Nam province.
With the sponsorship value of more than $25,000, the company has fully equipped two neonatal units and transferred necessary knowledge and skills to the doctors of the health centers with a view to reducing the infant mortality rate and the need for transfers to higher-level hospitals, alleviating the burden on ethnic minorities in the region.
“When it comes to community development initiatives in Vietnam, children’s well-being is always top of mind for us," said Cécile Rauline, president and general director of ExxonMobil Vietnam. “We, therefore, seek the trusted partners and programmes with a shared vision to bring the utmost benefits to these vulnerable members of the society. We honoured the strong relationship we have built up over a decade now with our local partners of Operation Smile Vietnam and VinaCapital Foundation. Together, we have been creating profound impacts and life-changing experience to the communities where ExxonMobil Vietnam operates.”
The year 2022 marks the seventh anniversary of ExxonMobil Vietnam being honoured in the framework of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) award initiated by the American Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Hanoi (AmCham Hanoi) since 2015.
AmCham's CSR Award recognises ExxonMobil Vietnam's outstanding contributions to improving the quality of education and healthcare, as well as its efforts to improve the quality of life for local people"
