On December 17th, 2019, Hoiana Complex Resort in collaboration with VinaCapital Foundation (VCF), handed over urgent medical equipment to two newborns Health centers (centers of health) in Duy Xuyen and Thang Binh district (Quang Nam) with a total sponsorship value of over 1 billion VND.
In addition to accelerating the development of a mixed-use resort project as committed to Quang Nam province, Hoiana is carrying out activities to contribute to the community and accompany Quang Nam to take care of the locals, which an important part is providing the best health and learning opportunities for the children in the province. In this program, Hoiana and VCF have sponsored and installed 30 pieces of emergency equipment and medical instruments for Duy Xuyen and Thang Binh district health centers, including 3 ventilators, 3 heating beds, 2 ECG devices, 1 infant phototherapy lamp, and 2 monitors. These devices have been put into use to improve the quality of medical examination and treatment for the local people, especially emergency services for premature babies. It is estimated that these medical devices will assist health workers in treating at least 35 children every day.
Mr. Steven Wolstenholme, COO of Hoiana, donated medical equipment
Mr. Steve Wolstenhomes, Chief Operating Officer of Hoiana Complex Resort, shared: “We always believe that the greatest value that Hoiana can bring is the contribution to the sustainable development of Quang Nam province. We want to contribute to the development of the tourism industry and support the livelihoods of the people here by giving priority to the use of local labor while improving the quality of life of the communities, district, and commune, which still face difficulties and help develop the young generation. Taking care of Vietnamese children in general and Quang Nam, in particular, is always our priority because when children are healthy and educated, their future maturity will contribute a lot to the homeland and the country.”
Mr. Rad Kivette, CEO of The VinaCapital Foundation
“With the support of the Hoiana resort, we will continue to accompany and join hands for the development of the people here, in Duy Xuyen district, Quang Nam province, especially to improve the quality of health care of children and adults. VinaCapital Foundation is committed to continuing to accompany Quang Nam province in many health and education projects in the future,” said Mr. Rad Kivette, CEO of VinaCapital Foundation.
According to the General Statistics Office by the end of December 2018, the proportion of child mortality under 5 years of age in Vietnam was 21.38 children per 1,000 births – while this rate in high-income countries, according to statistics from the World Health Organization in 2016, it was 5.3 babies per 1,000 births. Worryingly, this rate is significantly higher in rural and mountainous areas where two-thirds of Vietnam’s population is concentrated, including most ethnic minorities. These are localities facing a lot of difficulties in terms of economic conditions, and many district hospitals lack the necessary equipment to treat children in critical cases.
