Diageo Vietnam Limited (DVL) has donated VND3 billion to a vaccination program initiated by Tuoi Tre newspaper, making it one of the first businesses in the country to join hands with the media to help up to 10,000 frontline workers get vaccinated for free this year.
Jos Duursema, Chief Operating Officer of Diageo Vietnam, said as a British business operating in Vietnam, the company was proud to accompany and support the local communities in every possible way to protect their well-being and promote sustainable development for the country.
“Through partnerships with trusted partners, Diageo Vietnam hopes to secure more opportunities to access effective prevention and treatment for Covid-19, hence empowering Vietnamese people with the freedom to live a healthy and successful life,” Duursema said.
He said the sense of values and purposes guides Diageo’s business operations and social activities on a global scale.
Last June, Diageo Vietnam partnered with the Central Committee of Vietnam Fatherland Front to present the Ministry of Health with hand sanitizer bottles worth VND670 million, alongside its campaign “Clean Serve by Diageo” which provided sanitizing kits and guidelines for more than 315 bars and clubs across the country.
