“We know that the medical staff are working hard to heal the sick and protect us from the ongoing pandemic,” said Suchart.  “Providing this important PPE will help protect those on the front lines as they provide care.  Our company puts the highest value on safety, so medical staff working safely is critical – especially during this time of need.”

Chonburi is one of the provinces having significant cases during the ongoing COVID-19 situation as the number confirmed cases in Thailand continues to increase. The Esso refinery became aware of the need for the PPE based on the long-standing relationship with the hospital and other medical providers in the area.  In the past, the refinery has supported various charitable events with the hospital as part of its ongoing community support and engagement programs.

As affiliates of Exxon Mobil Corporation - a world leading energy Company, Esso and ExxonMobil affiliates in Thailand have been operating in Thailand for 125 years, providing quality fuels and lubes as well as chemical products to serve the growth of the country.  The companies emphasize on doing business operations that go along with social responsibility, while engaging, creating and supporting development in the operating communities.
