 ĐÀ NẴNG — The Central Retail Group in Việt Nam on August 6 handed over 10 tonnes of fruits and vegetables to units in the central city of Đà Nẵng as part of its support in the local fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nine of the 10 tonnes were donated to the municipal Department of Labour, Invalid and Social Affairs, and one tonne to the Đà Nẵng Centre for Disease Control.  

The two units will allocate the products to concentrated kitchens in the city responsible for providing food portions for frontline doctors and medical staff at hospitals and health centres, and people staying in concentrated quarantine areas.

The products, including cabbage, pumpkin, wax gourds, tomatoes and carrots, have the same quality as those sold at the Big C supermarket chain.

Previously, on August 3, through the Việt Nam Fatherland Front Committee in Đà Nẵng, the Central Retail Group presented 20,000 medical face masks and 300 bottles of anti-bacterial liquid to support doctors and medical staff on the frontline of the pandemic fight in the city.

The Big C Đà Nẵng supermarket has a sufficient supply of goods at stable prices to meet demand of residents there.

Supplies of hand sanitisers and face masks, for instance, have increased by at least 200 per cent compared to normal periods, while the supply of essential goods is enough for two to three months.

Customers can place orders via the Big C hotline 19001880. The supermarket will provide free delivery to customers within 10 km from the supermarket.  — VNS
