ExxonMobil in the community

Medical capability improvement

According to Vietnam Ministry of Health, at least 40,000 children under age five, especially those in poor rural communities, die each year from a lack of access to emergency care.

Since 2011, ExxonMobil has provided more than US$500,000 to support VinaCapital Foundation’s Critical Response Emergency Care and Survive to Thrive programs in central Vietnam, especially in Quang Nam and Quang Ngai provinces. 

Program goals

  • Enhance emergency care capability of medical staff in central Vietnam
  • Reduce the number of neonatal deaths and the number of children who survive medical crises but suffer side effects by providing state-of-the-art medical equipment to commune health centers and district and provincial hospitals

Program impact and beneficiaries

  • 11 pediatric advanced life-support training courses for medical staff in Da Nang, Quang Nam and Quang Ngai
  • 325 health providers trained and certified from six provincial hospitals, 39 district hospitals and 110 commune health centers
  • 58 pediatric crash carts donated to six provincial hospitals, 34 district hospitals and five commune health centers

  • 101 emergency equipment sets donated to 101 commune health centers
  • 12 Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines, 10 phototherapy lights, 13 injection/infusion pumps, three electrocardiogram machines, 12 intubation kits, six pulse oximeters and 13 bag valve masks donated to district and coastal district hospitals

Smile healing mission

Approximately one in 700 children worldwide are born with a cleft lip, palate or both.

Since 2014, ExxonMobil has provided more than US$200,000 for Operation Smile Vietnam, an international children’s medical charity that performs safe and effective cleft lip and palate surgery and delivers postoperative and ongoing medical therapies to underprivileged children in rural parts of Vietnam, including the central and northern provinces.

Program Goals

  • Provide free reconstructive treatment for Vietnamese children with cleft deformities
  • Provide dental care services including consultations, treatments, medication and hygiene education for children

Program impact and beneficiaries

  • 1,004 physical exams conducted
  • 606 children receive surgeries
  • 4,500 elementary students in Quang Nam and Quang Ngai receive dental screening, treatment and education

Other community development activities

Global Women in Management

Funded by ExxonMobil, Global Women in Management helps women fulfill their economic potential and become catalysts for change in their communities. Its workshops equip women in the nonprofit sector or civil society with leadership, technical and professional skills to help them strengthen organizations. There have been 16 beneficiaries of the program from Vietnam.

Teach for Vietnam

As part of the 2018 global partnership with Teach For All, ExxonMobil provided US$20,000 to Teach for Vietnam to advance STEM education.

The grant has been used to run a STEM summer camp for 34 students in Tay Ninh province. The program will help students apply modern technology to solve local problems.
