This Week

foodpanda has donated ten percent of order values in 2022 to the Lao Friends Hospital under its “One Order One Smile” campaign.

Ms. Thanyalat Chaleunsouk, Managing Director for Delivery Hero, and her team, donated LAK 54 million to the Lao Friends Hospital for Children in Luang Prabang last week.

The donation was received by Mr. Thomas Brune, director of the Lao Friends Hospital for Children.

The money will be used to purchase medical equipment and supplies for the children and their families who will be treated in this hospital.”

The project started on 1 November and ended on 31 December 2022.
