French pharmaceutical company Sanofi Vietnam was among seven companies to receive an appreciation certificate from the minister of health for contributions to COVID-19 prevention in Viet Nam.
Emin Turan, country lead for Sanofi Indochina, said, “Although the COVID-19 pandemic is still evolving in many countries around the world, Viet Nam has kept the pandemic well under control and gradually entered the stage of economic recovery.”
“Sanofi is honoured to have contributed to this endeavour.”
During the first outbreak, in response to a call from the Red Cross, Sanofi contributed VND1.3 billion (US$56,310) to help people living in the Mekong Delta cope with it.
The money was used to provide masks and sanitizers to encourage hygienic practices and raise awareness of pandemic prevention among the public.
Part of the donation was also used to help people affected by saltwater intrusion in rivers. VNS
