Between August 18th and 20th, Thong Nhat Hospital, Traditional Medicine Institute, 115 Hospital and University Medical Center in HCMC were overwhelmed with warm hearts and hands from volunteers to administer the long-awaited vaccines for the respective communities in the city donated by Van Thinh Phat Group (https://vtpgroup.com.vn/).
The five chambers with a total membership of more than 2,000 corporate and individual members are
- Chinese Business Association HCMC
- Hong Kong Business Association Vietnam
- Malaysia Business Chamber Vietnam
- Singapore Business Group HCMC
- Thai Business Association Vietnam
The Sinopharm vaccines are provided free to the chambers’ members, staff and their immediate families irrespective of their nationality or status, thanks to the sponsorship of VTP Group. “VTP not only makes possible the free vaccinations to our communities, they have also spearheaded the co-ordination of the vaccination at the community level,” says a spokesperson of the chambers. “We are extending our gratitude to all the attending medical professionals and volunteers for the three action-packed days where many benefited”.
The business associations believe that such a good act comes in very timely for the city, contributing to its eventual re-opening and economic rebound.
