HCM CITY— Tech giant VNG has launched the "Sai Gon Bao Dung” project in which a digital platform will help connect charity organisations, sponsors and disadvantaged people amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
To join the project, people can access https://zalopay.vn/site/share/saigon-baodung?view=home&tab=0. They can seek information about charity organisations and donate to the latter via ZaloPay or their bank accounts.
If people need help, they can find the exact address to buy food and receive other assistance from the project in the city’s districts.
More than 20 charity organisations in 10 districts have been connected and are on the project’s digital platform. The figure is expected to increase to 60 to help the disadvantaged after the COVID-19 outbreak.
VNG has connected with suppliers to donate 150,000 masks, 11,000 items of protective clothing with third-level protection, and 110 medical glove boxes to 23 hospitals in the city.
ZaloPay e-wallet has also worked with e-commerce platform Lazada to open zero đồng minimarts for the disadvantaged. VNS
