All these products will be sent to northern isolated areas, as well as the customs clearance and immigration areas of the border gates to China in the same province, according to the directions of the National Steering Committee on Coronavirus Prevention and Control.

Nguyen Phuong Son, head of Amway Vietnam’s Public Affairs said, “Over the years, Amway Vietnam has professed its responsibility for the community, as seen in our multitude of community-oriented activities. This responsibility doubles in emergency situations like the COVID-19 epidemic and we are trying to live up to it.”

Son added, “This practical activity will contribute to the prevention of the current epidemic and will provide direct support to health officials and soldiers, as well as local people.”

Improving everyday lives throughout more than 60 years of operation, Amway has been doing its utmost to help people live better through vigorous corporate social responsibility programmes.

Previously, Amway China sent a large batch of nutritional products worth ¥11 million ($1.57 million) to two hospitals the Chinese government had allocated to treat COVID-19 patients.
