Of the total figure, VND7 billion was donated to the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee with the remainder of the sum going to VFF chapters in the northern provinces of Bac Ninh and Thai Nguyen where the group operates factories.
In addition, the enterprise has offered a range of high-end smartphone products that can serve in testing activities and assist the Vietnamese government in deploying technological applications as a means of boosting COVID-19 prevention measures.
Simultaneously, Samsung Vietnam has also provided large-screen televisions which will allow local authorities to closely monitor the situation as it unfolds.
Choi Joo-ho, general director of Samsung Vietnam, affirmed that the group is ready to join the government in the fight against the COVID-19 and to help protect the health of the community.
He expressed his belief the country will overcome this current difficult period by utilising the combined efforts of the entire society, businesses, and organisations nationwide.
Previously, Samsung Vietnam had launched a rescue program to assist Vietnamese farmers who were badly affected by the COVID-19 epidemic.
Most notably, the group’s staff have participated in fund raising programs launched by the company in response to the appeal for public support to boost the fight against the virus.
