BJC Group has implemented many activities to join hands with the Vietnamese Government in the battle with Covid-19 pandemic

Earlier in June this year, TCC Group, the parent company of BJC Group, contributed US$1 million (approximately VND23 billion) to the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee to buy Covid-19 vaccine. Particularly, MM Mega Market Vietnam (MM), a subsidiary of BJC Group, has implemented many activities to join hands with the Vietnamese Government in fighting the pandemic over the past time.

Specifically, MM helped purchase agricultural products from the pandemic-affected provinces like Bac Giang, Hai Duong and Son La, contributing its part to stabilizing people’s life and production against the impact of the pandemic. In 2020, MM gave nearly one ton of fresh food to Danang Hospital C to prepare meals for some 1,000 health workers and patients quarantined there.

On November 12, 2021, MM Mega Market was commended by the HCMC People’s Committee for the company’s great efforts in the fight against Covid-19. During the 120 days of the severe outbreak of Covid-19 in HCMC, all MM staff members had to work at full capacity to ensure the supply chain of goods for the city dwellers. Aside from supplying necessities for residents in quarantine areas during the strict lockdown, contributing to the Covid-19 Vaccine Fund, and donating necessities to needy households, MM has also presented healthcare goods to health centers and field hospitals during this difficult time.
