ABB supports poor patients at the Vietnam National Hospital for Pediatrics

2017-02-08 - ABB continued its Charitable Program at the Vietnam National Hospital (NHP) for Pediatrics. During the program, ABB has approached patients with limited finance resources and supported payment of medical expenses since early November 2016. This is the second time the program has been taken place at the NHP with support of the hospital’s Social Affairs department.

While the medical expense support will be ongoing until the end of February 2017, ABB Social Day was hosted by the Company on January 19th 2017 aiming at bringing a little warm pleasure to patients and their families on the Lunar New Year occasion with the engagement of many ABB staff. At the event, ABB specially presented more than one hundred Tet gifts and 500 meal coupons to patients. At the same time, understanding the lack of equipment on daily operation of the Intensive External Medicines Department, ABB also supported two electrical injectors to the department. On behalf of NHP, Mr. Trinh Ngoc Hai - Head of hospital’s Social Affairs Department highly appreciated ABB support. He commented that ABB’s support has been very meaningful, helping to facilitate the treatment process while giving the patient and their families strong encouragement and care.

Participating the Social Day, Mr. William Ng, CFO of ABB at the South East Asia region shared “to become a good company, other than generating profit for the shareholders, it is more essential to show the corporate responsibility to the local community”.
