In an extraordinary display of corporate generosity, CapitaLand Vietnam (CapitaLand), together with its philanthropic arm, CapitaLand Hope Foundation (CHF), is donating SARS-CoV-2 test kits capable of performing 40,000 tests valued at US$1 million to the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee (VFFCC) and Ministry of Health to support the community in its efforts against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The donation is among one of several initiative that CapitaLand and CHF are initiating to support COVID-19 prevention as the situation continues to pose challenges for the country.
Chen Lian Pang, Chief Executive Officer of CapitaLand Vietnam, said: “Amidst the complexities of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the contribution of businesses in supporting the local community is important. We believe that CapitaLand’s contribution, together with the collective support from the Vietnam government, other enterprises and the local community will help Vietnam through this challenging time.”
In addition to joining hands with the Vietnamese Government, CapitaLand also has in place business continuity plans to enable the company to continue its critical activities and minimize the impact on its operations.
At CapitaLand’s properties, the company works closely with local authorities to support their efforts in containing the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the well being of its stakeholders. These include limiting mass participation activities and adopting precautionary measures such as intensifying cleaning and disinfecting of its properties in accordance with guidelines from the health authorities.
Regarding residential operations, CapitaLand has worked with buildings’ managements to regularly update residents with official information on COVID-19 prevention from the Ministry of Health. This included following local authorities’ instructions on precautionary measures, monitoring the health of residents and being transparent in providing information to government authorities, building management, residents and other relevant parties.
