On Tuesday 17th August, The European Chamber of Commerce (EuroCham) has launched a new, ambitious fundraising campaign to support Vietnam during the fourth wave outbreak of COVID-19.
With cases continuing to rise and healthcare professionals working around the clock to treat patients, EuroCham is encouraging its members to donate to a new fund which will be used to procure much-needed medical equipment for Vietnam’s hard-pressed hospitals.
The initiative is the brainchild of Gricha Safarian, Founder of Puratos Grand-Place Vietnam. EuroCham has agreed to lead and manage the campaign, aiming to utilize its large and diverse membership – counting over one thousand enterprises and investors in all sectors and industries – to ensure the largest possible fundraising effort.
Companies or individuals wishing to donate to the fund can contact EuroCham on: firstname.lastname@example.org

All funds donated to the “Breathe Again” campaign will be used to purchase European medical devices and equipment for hospitals in Vietnam’s hardest-hit areas. EuroCham will work with the health authorities to make sure that the equipment goes to where it is needed and will have the greatest impact. The chamber will also be flexible, working with donors to ensure that wherever possible their donation goes to a particular province or community.
EuroCham will work with suppliers to procure the equipment and ensure their quick and transparent delivery to hospitals in these areas within a few days of sufficient donations being received.
