At the May 28 ceremony announcing the donation, PetroVietnam President and CEO Le Manh Hung said Petrovietnam had long cooperated with ministries, sectors, agencies, organizations and businesses in the prevention and control of the pandemic.

Group employees have also provided contributions together with the Ministry of Health, sectors and localities in the prevention and control of Covid-19 and in the deployment of the vaccination program. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, the Group’s employees have donated VND100 billion to control and eradicate the disease.

Hung thanked them as well as the medical teams and all other officials and people who have engaged in the disease prevention and control and helped maintain a stable environment for safe and effective business operations, in general, and Petrovietnam’s, in particular.

Since the resurgence of the Covid-19 epidemic in late April 2021, Petrovietnam and its member units have donated tens of billions of dong to the health sector and localities on the front lines of the fight against the pandemic. At the same time, to protect the health of 56,000 oil and gas workers, the Vietnam Oil and Gas Trade Union has supported affiliated unions with VND2.8 billion for essential supplies.
