FPT Sponsors VND 20 billion and over 2,000 spaces for Coronavirus Prevention and Control in Vietnam

On March 22, 2020, private conglomerate FPT Corporation and FPT people pledged 2,000 isolated places in the dormitory of FPT Education in Hoa Lac High Tech Park and VND 20 billion to purchase essential medical equipment such as ventilators, sterilization chambers and other medical protective equipment in response to the Prime Minister’s call for the country to fight against COVID-19. 

FPT people volunteered to cross 40-50 km to the dormitory in FPT Hoa Lac to support the preparation of welcoming people from abroad to the quarantine area.

In recent days, the COVID-19 epidemic has been very complicated, in addition to raising the awareness of epidemic prevention in the community, ensuring protective equipment for the medical staff, strengthening surveillance and separation of infected and suspected people are top priorities of the Vietnamese Government and Hanoi city. In the coming days, Hanoi city needs to prepare more facilities to isolate 20,000 people from the epidemic area, with the requirement of convenient transportation, not in densely populated areas.

FPT high school parents and students quickly packed their furniture to make rooms for the quarantine area.

On March 21, 2020, the Hanoi People’s Committee signed Decision No. 1138 / QD-UBND on the establishment of a concentrated isolation area at the dormitories of FPT University and FPT High School in Hoa Lac. The dormitory is located in an area of 30 hectares, airy and green, including many housing areas and functional areas with full facilities. During the weekends, FPT staff and students were quickly preparing the facilities to be ready to serve as an isolated place for more than 2000 people at the request of the city.

“For FPT, people are the most valuable asset and we are always willing to contribute the best to help the Government repel COVID-19 and protect the people. To the best of our ability, we wish to contribute to the protection of doctors on the front line and the protection of public health, minimizing the possibility of spreading diseases, and reducing the pressure of the Government and the City. Hopefully, there will be more angels working together to help us overcome these challenges”, said FPT Chairman Truong Gia Binh.

FPT Students wrote a letter to the coming recipients.

Dear beloved recipients,

I don’t know if our F410R room has been used during the time the school became a quarantine area or not; but we are happy to have shared the dorm room for everyone during the epidemic diseases.

[…]

We thank and hope everyone will have a good time in isolation at FPT’s dormitory and our F401R room with safety and health.”, lovely messages written by FPT students. 

Thousands of books with super sweet wishes were carefully packed overnight by FPT people to give to the coming guests in the quarantine area.

Because the community has been a good tradition of FPT for many years and FPT always strives to contribute with its technological strengths as well as many meaningful social responsibility activities, which come from the sincere sharings and sincere hearts of each and every FPT individual. Since the early February, when the COVID-19 outbreak broke out, FPT collaborated with the Department of Information Technology – the Ministry of Health to launch a 24/7 virtual chatbot providing information on epidemics to people at https://ncov.ehealth.gov.vn/. In addition, FPT opens free learning and homework at the Vioedu online training system for schools and students nationwide until the end of the epidemic. Till now, there have been 15,000 schools in 63/63 provinces and cities with students registering to participate and study with more than 90 million questions reviewed and practiced on the system.
