AYEYARWADY FOUNDATION HAS CONTRIBUTED
15.5 BILLION MMK
FOR COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Under the guidance of Founder and Executive Chairman U Zaw Zaw, Ayeyarwady Foundation was set up in 2010 as a Non-Profit Organization (NPO) to focus on five pillars of philanthropic activities: Health, Education, Disaster Management, Youth Development and Sports Programmes, and Responsible Business Practice Program.
Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, Ayeyarwady Foundation has been contributing all its resources for the people’s safety and public health. The Foundation has set up quarantine camps converted from AYA Bank Training Center, three camps of Myanmar National Football Teams and National Football Academy (Yangon), which can hold up to 350 people to be quarantined. Together with Max Hotels Group and Novotel Yangon Max, the Foundation has provided daily meals for 600 quarantined people in Yangon each and every day during the crisis.
In an effort to combat an alarming increase of Covid-19 cases, an emergency temporary treatment center, or Alternate Care Facility (ACF), has been constructed at Thuwunna Youth Training Center by the Ayeyarwady Foundation. The center can accommodate up to 416 patients as well as 8 bedded ICU and will be managed by the Ministry of Health and Sports. The foundation is currently building another Covid-19 Critical Care Unit with 20 bedded ICU and 55 bedded HDU in Ayeyarwady Center (Thuwunna).
The center will be fully air-conditioned, and all the funds required for the entire infrastructure, logistics and supplies will be donated by Ayeyarwady Foundation. Health care services will be provided by a team of 250, consisting of healthcare professionals, pharmacist and volunteers.
We will give our best efforts
to help creating our land Myanmar a better place to live.
