Prudential Life Assurance (Lao) Limited Company (“Prudential Laos”) has completed its donation of 12,000 sets of protection kits, valued at LAK443 million, to the Lao Red Cross in Vientiane Capital to support frontline workers to combat rising COVID-19 cases nationwide.
The protection kits, including masks and alcohol-based disinfectants, will be distributed to frontline workers by Lao Red Cross across the country.
In recognition of the public health and relief efforts provided by the Lao Red Cross, these 12,000 sets of protection kits support the COVID-19 workforce committees, frontliners, Lao Red Cross staff and volunteers to continue their unwavering public services during the on-going pandemic. Associate Professor Dr Phouthone Meuangpak, President of Lao Red Cross, received the donated kits from the Prudential Laos management team at the charity’s headquarters in Vientiane.
Prudential Laos has partnered with Lao Red Cross to assist rural communities by extending the COVID-19 Care Fund (“CCF”) to provide financial relief to support the livelihoods of people living outside of Vientiane since November 2021.
Veejay Madhavan, Leader of Prudential Laos said, “Here we are again fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic, and we truly appreciate the efforts and sacrifices made by all frontline workers in this battle to keep us safe. As a responsible member of the Lao community, we stand with them and are honoured to provide these protection kits to safeguard our communities during these difficult times.”
