Vinamilk promotes healthy lifestyle and steps up donations in the fight against COVID-19
HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam, June 25, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Vinamilk, Vietnam's leading dairy company, has made financial and nutrition 
contributions in the global fight against COVID-19 which has reached an 
estimated value of US$3.7 million.

Apart from epidemic prevention and production maintaining initiatives, 
Vinamilk, which ranks 36th in the global top 50 dairy manufacturer and is 
well-known for its CSR efforts, has made financial and nutrition products' 
donations to support the Vietnam government and medical forces, the local 
Vietnamese and overseas communities where Vinamilk's subsidiaries are located 
to fight against COVID-19.

"In the midst of challenges, Vinamilk is thriving in its journey of sustainable 
development which is based upon the shared belief of the collective value. 
Along with the support from our partners, stakeholders, and the continuous 
efforts of all employees, we believe that Vinamilk will continue to excel in 
the journey of creating and sharing common value that contributes towards a 
sustainable and brighter future," Mrs Mai Kieu Lien, Vinamilk's CEO, shared.

In 2021, during the most recent outbreak in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, a local 
Vinamilk's subsidiary promptly presented 48,000 cartons of milk to residents 
who lived in the COVID-19 "Red zone". This action demonstrated the company's 
ongoing commitment to ensuring a supply of nutritional source for local people 
in the critical times.

In Vietnam, where Vinamilk's headquarter located, the dairy manufacturer has 
donated 2 million nutritional products to provide nutritional support to those 
affected by the pandemic, especially children during the first 6 months of 
2021. 1.7 million cartons of milk were distributed to nearly 19,000 
disadvantaged children and nearly 80,000 products to 3,800 children in 
quarantine areas to build resistance against viruses.

Responding to the urge of reaching herd immunity in Vietnam, Vinamilk donated 
US$872,000 to the government to administer free vaccines to Vietnamese 
citizens, including children ages 12 to 18. 

Recently, Vinamilk has launched a campaign "A healthy you for the healthy 
Vietnam" with the purpose of promoting healthy lifestyle and bringing positive 
energy to the community during this turbulent time.

When COVID-19 first broke out in 2020, Vinamilk supported the country and the 
community with financial funding and products worth estimated US$1.8 million. 
Besides prompt actions in Vietnam, Vinamilk's subsidiary in the U.S., Driftwood 
Dairy Factory, has also been supporting people who struggled with a sudden loss 
of income with more than 12,000 milk bottles (23,000 litres) through L.A. Food 

Vinamilk's continuous CSR efforts, towards sustainable development, have been 
recognized and the brand was awarded the Best Country Award for Overall CSR 
Excellence in the Global CSR Awards 2020.
