HCM CITY — CT Group has donated 1,000 tonnes of rice to poor families living in more than 350 locked-down areas in HCM City to ensure they have sufficient and nutritious food to stay healthy and overcome the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The pandemic has made the lives of poor people worse, and they are in dire need of support. Realising this, CT Group calls on people from all walks of life to give them a hand in order to not let them don’t have enough food to eat or get sick.
CT Group bought the rice, and, together with the HCM City Union of Business Associations and other benefactors, handed it over directly to the families.
Its employees from various divisions and supermarket staff split into several teams to complete the task as well as contribute to the country’s epidemic prevention and control efforts.
For instance, they provide meals daily to poor people in District 4 together with the local Women's Union and the Communist Youth Union, help the Department of Information and Communication prepare hundreds of thousands of flyers on anti-epidemic guidance, repair COVID examination areas at Phạm Ngọc Thạch Hospital, and donate ventilators to medical units.
All the company’s employees are united and not afraid of the difficulties they might face while supporting disadvantaged people in the city.
The tens of billions of đồng used to carry out the tasks come not only from the company, but also from voluntary staff contributions.
Trucks carrying the first consignments of rice under a campaign to donate 1,000 tonnes to people living in over 350 locked-down areas in HCM City arrive at CT Group’s central warehouses in the city. The campaign aims to ensure poor people do not suffer from hunger.
CT Group donates 1,000 tonnes of rice to support people living in difficult circumstances in HCM City amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since June CT Group has also set up two machines to dispense rice for free, dubbed ATMs, at 20A Trương Định, District 3, and 360 Hanoi Highway, Thủ Đức City, to help disadvantaged people.
