Samsung Vietnam on Monday donated nearly VND11 billion (US$478,000) to the Fatherland Front Committee of Thai Nguyen Province to help in the prevention and control of COVID-19, including ensuring resources to vaccinate people.

Samsung Vietnam donated VND10 billion, while the Trade Union and employees of Samsung factories in Thai Nguyen, SEVT and SEMV, also gave over VND953 million by swiping a card to donate money at CSR kiosks in the company.

Samsung Vietnam has donated VND67.7 billion to the fight against COVID-19 in Viet Nam so far.

Earlier, the company donated more than VND56 billion for pandemic prevention and control, including VND40 billion for the COVID-19 vaccine fund; VND10 billion to support Bac Ninh Province and VND6 billion of medical equipment in Bac Giang Province.

In May and June 2021, SEVT factory also awarded 1,220 gifts worth VND700 million to support the frontline forces in Thai Nguyen.

It is expected that Samsung will continue to support the prevention of COVID-19 in HCM City in the near future.

Choi Joo Ho, President of Samsung Vietnam Complex, said: "We hope that Samsung's contributions will help workers and people in Thai Nguyen Province get vaccinated, reaching herd immunity and at the same time realising its dual goals of "effective pandemic prevention" and "economic development".

Samsung Vietnam has applied pandemic prevention measures such as checking the body temperature of employees at the entrance, disinfecting all areas in the factory, ensuring a safe distance between employees, installing partitions to prevent direct contact at the cafeteria, meeting rooms, operating the screening area inside and outside the factory.

In addition, during the outbreak of the disease recently, Samsung has increased the application of pandemic prevention measures including increasing the number of employees working from home and resident employees working at factories; conducting large-scale COVID-19 testing; providing free KF-94/KN-95 masks for employees; performing daily medical declaration for employees through the internal electronic system. — VNS
