Officials and representatives from the LFND, Phongsavanh Foundation and Savannakhet Provincial Hospital at the hand-over ceremony.

The goods were handed over by the LFND’s representative, Mr Sinxay Vonglakhone, who is also the organisation's Vice Director in Savannakhet, and the Phongsavanh Foundation Administration Department's Director, Mr Fongsamouth Saychandy, and their delegations to a representative of the Savannakhet Provincial Hospital, Dr Phouvilay Keomongkhoun, during a ceremony held on Wednesday.

The medical supplies and consumer products included 20 blood pressure monitors, 20 temperature scanners, eight tents for filtering points, 100 medical protection suits, 20 boxes of paper nursing caps, 20 boxes of disposable shoe covers, 20 boxes of face masks, and 20 boxes of medical gloves.

Dr Phouvilay thanked the Phongsavanh Foundation and LFND for providing the valuable supplies to the hospital as a contribution to the efforts to prevent and control Covid-19.

The Phongsavanh Foundation, which is concerned about the health of the people amid the Covid-19 pandemic, handed over the goods to the hospital so that they can be used to provide medical services. It was also a contribution to the State and Party’s health-related works to provide better healthcare services.

The Phongsavanh Group has made effective contributions to Laos’ socio-economic development, poverty eradication programmes, human resource development and quality of life improvement, and has contributed significantly to various aspects of societal well-being.

It contributes strongly to national revenues every year and, increasingly, has been involved in business and education cooperation with companies in Laos and other countries, media development, and cooperation with state sectors for poverty reduction in remote areas.
