FrieslandCampina Viet Nam’s Dutch Lady brand has donated 250,000 glasses of milk for frontline medical personnel and people living in locked-down areas in COVID-19 hotspots HCM City and Binh Duong Province.

The donation was done as part of a programme called ‘Better Nutrition For The World, We Care We Share’ launched last year and “reflects the group’s corporate social responsibility over the past 25 years of its presence in Viet Nam, especially during the pandemic”.

The donation was done through the Fatherland Front in the two places and local charity organisations.

Ta Thuy Ha, marketing director of FrieslandCampina Viet Nam, said: “Since the pandemic began early last year, our company has made great efforts, donating tens of millions of glasses of milk to those affected by the pandemic worth a total of VND25 billion.

“We hope individuals and businesses will continue to offer help and support to millions of affected families and doctors and nurses across the country to help them in their fight against COVID-19.”

The ongoing fourth wave has seen some 150,000 cases so far.

More than 1,300 people have died since the beginning of the outbreak early last year. — VNS
