Of this, VND500 million ($21,740) of the donation has been earmarked for Bach Mai Hospital, which is one of the health centres which have been hit the hardest during the pandemic and is on the frontline of battling the virus in Vietnam.
According to an announcement from the Ministry of Health made at 6am on April 9, 2020, Vietnam had recorded 251 positive cases of COVID-19, with 44 infected at Bach Mai Hospital. In order to minimise the likelihood of the virus spreading in the community, the entirety of Bach Mai Hospital has been cordoned off for quarantine. With no one able to leave or enter the premises, the hospital is experiencing a range of difficulties with regard to shortages of resources, medical equipment, and the provision of necessities for patients.
In order to ease the burden, through the Central Committee of the Vietnam Fatherland Front, TCPVN has donated VND500 million ($21,740) to support Bach Mai Hospital during the pandemic. Previously, on April 3, 2020, through the Central Committee of Vietnam Fatherland Front Ho Chi Minh City, TCPVN contributed VND100 million ($4,350) in funds and 21,420 products in response to the government's call for action to help with the pandemic.
Nguyen Thanh Huan, general director of TCPVN, said: “We acknowledge that this is a tough time for Vietnam, and that it is necessary to share the burden with the community, especially with regards to the complicated COVID-19 situation at Bach Mai Hospital in recent days. TCPVN wishes to stand side-by-side with citizens across the country and the hospital in dealing with this crisis. The company is ready to strictly implement the government's and the Ministry of Health's directives in order to help fight the pandemic together, and we hope that the efforts of TCPVN and other businesses, along with the government, will help all of us pull through this crisis as soon and safely as possible. TCPVN inherited the sustainable values of TCP Group in Thailand, and we will continue to promote and spread this spirit in Vietnam.”
Saravoot Yoovidhya, CEO of TCP Group, said: “Red Bull energy drink has been served to consumers in Vietnam for over 20 years through our local partnership. In 2018, TCP Group decided to expand its business in Vietnam by setting up TCPVN to offer a wider portfolio to Vietnamese consumers. For TCP Group, Vietnam is one of the most important and fastest-growing markets in the region. Facing the COVID-19 pandemic, Vietnam, like many other countries in the world, is experiencing a challenging period. TCPVN's contribution to Bach Mai Hospital in particular and Vietnam in general is a testament to TCP Group’s long-term commitment to Vietnam. We hope to contribute to mitigating the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as helping to prevent the spread of this virus in Vietnam and around the world.”
