PV GAS visits and encourages orphaned students due to the Covid-19 pandemic
Welcoming the new school year, as a part of the partnership between Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corporation (PV GAS) and University Medical Center of HCM City, they coordinated with the People's Committee of District 5 to visit and encourage local students who lost their mother or father to Covid-19 pandemic, in order to join hands to support these students to overcome difficulties and rise up in their life.
According to statistics, more than 4,400 children nationwide have been orphaned by the last 4 waves of the Covid-19 pandemic, including 193 with both their lost parents. Material wealth and economic loss of each family can be remade, but the loss of beloved people is too great to overcome. With the desire to share, encourage and accompany the children to overcome in the upcoming days and focus on studying, the Trade Union of the Executive Office and Petrovietnam Gas LNG’s one represented Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corporation (PV GAS) in collaboration with the University Medical Center of HCM City and District 5 People's Committee to give away 57 gifts to local orphaned children with each gift worth VND 3,000,000 and 01 carton of milk.
The children benefiting the program were mostly students from primary to high school levels in the district, also including preschool-age ones. It was really touching to see children at very young age experiencing the severe consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic - that robbed the loving arms of parents, leaving behind irreparable pain and great absence for the growing preschoolers.
The gifts of the delegation from the coordinating units were not enough to relieve pains in the children’s heart, but this was the warm love, the shared concern of the authorities and the social community, expressing the tradition of "mutual love and affection" of Vietnamese generations. The delegation wished them all the best on the pathway ahead and hoped that the loving arms would always protect and support them so that they could have a better living environment and become people who would contribute to the society’s development.
