Deeply aware of the difficulties of homeless persons, lottery sellers, and temporary workers who have lost their jobs during the COVID-19 epidemic, Novaland Group and its partners under the co-ordination of the Centre for Youth Social Work have presented 5,000 gift packages to people in difficult circumstances in Ho Chi Minh City.

For the programme, Novaland Group teamed up with various partners, including NutiFood Nutrition Food JSC, Charitable Assistance Fund CP Vietnam, Giau Thuan Co., Ltd., Colusa Miliket Foodstuff JSC, and Vietnam Health Channel as well as the Centre for Youth Social Work.

Being the initiator of this programme, a representative from Novaland said that with the common goal of coping with the pandemic, the business community is ready to join hands with Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee and the whole country to push the pandemic back.

Previously, Novaland had donated more than VND6 billion ($260,870) from the company’s budget and employees’ contributions to protect public health and cope with the epidemic in Ho Chi Minh City and other provinces like Binh Thuan.

The group is also going to donate medical equipment such as negative pressure room, high-class ventilators, and dialysis systems worth about VND10 billion ($434,780) to Hospital 115.

It is expected that on April 10, Novaland and its partners continue to present gift packages at Vinh Nghiem Pagoda, Smile restaurants, the Red Cross of District 6 and many others.

On April 9, VIR’s reporters followed Novaland staff and partners and members of the Youth Affairs Committee of District 10 to present gift packages to vulnerable people.
