In light of the second wave of Covid-19 in Laos, MARUHAN Japan Bank today announced its initiative to support medical frontliners and volunteers in battling the scourge of this pandemic.

As a trusted financial partner to consumers, businesses, and the community, Maruhan is keen to contribute and galvanize support to help alleviate the challenges facing the nation’s frontliners – who are our true heroes.

To kick-start our response to the urgent needs of designated hospitals and testing centers, Maruhan is immediately contributing 100 pieces of PPE suits, 41 portable hospital beds, 2,500 pieces of face masks, 5,000 pieces of surgical gloves, 100 bottles of hand sanitizes and 3,600 bottles of drinking water. This will be handed over to the Ministry of Health for their distribution.

Aligned to this objective, Maruhan is honored to launch the “MJBL COVID VIRA-BU-LOUD FUND” to encourage and enable the public and business community to donate to this meaningful cause in support of all medical frontliners.

It is a LAK bank account at Maruhan with account number 024458140001. To enable easy access and transfers, it is QR enabled as displayed below and can be transferred via Unitel’s e-wallet “u-money” and LTC’s e-wallet “M- Money” by indicating this assigned contact number 020-58250665.
