Working in partnership with Youth Union, Castrol BP Petco (CBPP) is donating safety kits to frontline healthcare workers and has set up mobile bike workshops offering free servicing and oil changes to everyday heroes working to protect us all.
Tough times call for strong community care. With more than 25 years’ experience operating in Vietnam, Castrol BP Petco (CBPP) has long supported the country with numerous community relief programs. In the fight against COVID-19, Castrol, in association with Youth Union, is running a program named “Protecting People Who Protect the World”.
Its mission is twofold: to support 4,000 health care workers with specialist care packs in Vietnam’s quarantine centers, and to supply 10,000 safety kits to Castrol customers across the country.
“In quarantine centers, our brave frontline workers, including medical professionals and soldiers, are putting their lives at risk every day to protect and save lives of others while making countless sacrifices. At Castrol, we would like to honor and help protect these People Who Protect the World in our own way. We’re delighted to partner with Youth Union to offer these frontline workers more personal safety protection.”, said Mr. Nguyen Phuoc Toan, general director of CBBP.
The program has been rolled out since mid-April 2020. A total of 4,000 safety kits containing essential products, such as medical masks and hand sanitizer, (along with Castrol lubricants) have been delivered to doctors, nurses and soldiers working in quarantine centers in HCMC (6) and Hanoi (4). Castrol is also offering complimentary bike service and oil change at 10 work stations in these areas to serve local frontline teams.
Mr. Rohit Talwar – marketing director of CBBP added: “Our objective is to take care of both frontline workers and also their bikes, to help them stay ready for any upcoming mission.”
Castrol has also supplied 10,000 of its branded workshops nationwide with safety kits, containing masks and hand sanitizers. At the same time, Castrol mechanics can also access a newly-launched training app on Zalo, where they can find up to date information and advice to help protect their business at this time.
“We know it's a challenging fight against COVID-19, but we will get through this and we will get through it together.” concludes Mr. Rohit Talwar.
