Surmounting Challenges of Covid-19 Pandemic

While our society has experienced many surprising events, no one has predicted that a pandemic will occur in 2020. COVID-19 has shaken the world in many unprecedented ways, and its repercussions are still difficult to assess. The pandemic has brought adverse impacts toward physical and psychological health of countless individuals, families and communities in Thailand. Its impacts also extend beyond public health to economic and financial status of the communities, especially the most vulnerable within our society. WHAUP has reached out and is actively involved in helping the vulnerable and other community members around its operations. As a result, the Company has deployed numerous initiatives to adjust to the situation and support those in need.

Tackling the COVID-19 Crisis Together

To help protect medical front liners bravely serving COVID-19 patients at Ban Khai Hospital, WHA Group donated a much-needed negative pressure cabinet Built to prevent the proliferation of germs and viruses, it is crucial for reducing the risk of infection among patients and medical staff. Food packs were distributed to vulnerable families with limited access to food or who suffered economic consequences as a result of the pandemic. In conjunction with Thai Red Cross Rayong Chapter and Rayong Hospital, a blood donation event was organized to ensure that blood supply is always adequate and ready for those in need.

Supporting Local front Liners and First Responders

The Company handed over 1,000 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) suits to Ramathibodi Hospital to be distributed to hospitals nationwide. In addition, over 5,000 KN-95 masks were also given to various provincial health administrations and hospitals across the country to ensure that medical staff members are properly protected from catching the virus. A substantial amount of money also went to help and feed front liners who bravely and selflessly performed their duties.


Helping the Community Observe Health and Safety Protocols

WHA Group teams were also busy distributing KN-95 masks and hand sanitizers to Pluakdaeng Hospital in Rayong, the Pattaya Administrative Office and other public institutions in the Eastern Economic Corridor. They also went to Maenamkoo district in Rayong to provide support for the manufacture of masks for monks and villagers.

Since the start of the outbreak, the company has been distributing hand sanitizers to 65 local schools, as well as hospitals, healthcare centers and provincial administrative offices. In addition to this donation, WHA executives and staff also reached out to schools and child development centers to promote personal hygiene and health awareness through interactive games to keep students safe as schools reopen.
