Siemens Caring Hands donates medical equipment to hospitals in Vietnam

Overview

In response to the Vietnamese government's call on COVID-19 prevention and control, DEVIEMED is very pleased to cooperate with Siemens Caring Hands and Siemens Vietnam to sponsor medical equipment for the hospitals to treat Covid patients.

 

This donation is part of the global Siemens relief fund program managed by Siemens Caring Hands – a charitable association founded by Siemens AG in 2001. The fund was set up to provide support to relief organizations and medical facilities as well as to individuals impacted by the COVID-19 crisis worldwide. This donation project was submitted by Siemens Vietnam to Siemens Caring Hands and is co-implemented with DEVIEMED – an established non-profit association of German and Vietnamese doctors, with technical support from Siemens Healthineers in Vietnam.
