Through the Vietnamese Young Physician Association, Hongkong Land has recently donated four oxygen ventilators and 800 sets of medical protective clothing to the Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Ho Chi Minh City and the National Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Hanoi as part of their efforts to equip hospitals in the nations' efforts against COVID-19.

Striving to care for the communities where it operates, Hongkong Land has been making medical donations across all the cities it operates in, starting from Wuhan, China to these latest donations here in Vietnam.

This donation is part of a wider effort in which the Jardine Group (the majority shareholder of Hongkong Land) has donated equipment to Cho Ray hospital and the Children's Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City and whose restaurants have been gifting contributing drinks and meals to frontline medical and support staff.

The company is appreciative of the government’s swift actions in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, said a representative of Hongkong Land Vietnam.

“In addition, we are thankful to all frontliners for their huge contributions and sacrifices," the representative added. "As a socially responsible company operating in Vietnam, this contribution is our support to the battle against this pandemic. Together, we are looking forward to brighter days ahead."

Cao Thi Ly Anh, general director of Doan Ket International Co., Ltd. (a joint venture between Hongkong Land, Chan Hung Investment Development Co., Ltd., and Manolis & Company Asia Ltd. to operate the Central Building high-end office building and 63 Ly Thai To, a high-end office building in Hanoi) said that not only is Hongkong Land trying to contribute to the wider medical effort but all subsidiaries have been proactively engaging their staff to mobilise cash contributions to the COVID-19 fund, keep morale high by starting a poetry competition which has brought laughter and fun during these serious times, directing all hands on deck to follow instructions and guidance on the prevention and containment of the pandemic.
