As a show of solidarity and support to the people of Vietnam, SPG Invest and SPG Industrial is proud and honored to have donated 100 new High-Flow Oxygen Ventilators to hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City.
Valued at around VND 11 billion, the NF5 high-flow oxygen ventilators provide respiratory support to help patients suffering the effects of Covid-19. SPG organised the donation in response to the call from the Standing Commitee of the HCMC Vietnam Fatherland Front to support the national fight against coronavirus. The ventilators are portable, compact, lightweight and, with multiple emergency case applications, will continue playing an extremely useful role for hospitals well after the Covid-19 pandemic abates.
“We consider Ho Chi Minh City our home, and the donation comes from the hearts of all SPG employees and its board of directors. Hopefully, our small donation will enable frontline hospitals, their healthcare workers and patients during this tough time,” said an SPG Invest spokesperson.
Ten hospitals and field hospitals in HCMC and Thu Duc City will be receiving the units from SPG. These include the Cu Chi Covid-19 Treatment Hospital, Can Gio Covid-19 Treatment Hospital, Go Vap Covid-19 Treatment Hospital, Covid-19 Treatment Field Hospital Number 2, Covid-19 Treatment Field Hospital Number 3, Covid-19 Treatment Field Hospital Number 11, Hoc Mon General Hospital, Psychiatric Hospital, ENT Hospital, and Saigon General Hospital.
A key part of the SPG vision is to be a socially responsible organization with a strong and unwavering commitment to give back to the community. SPG sincerely hopes this contribution will aid the fight against Covid-19 and help the health authorities bring the disease under greater control.
