Esso and ExxonMobil in Thailand handed over 1.8-million-baht to Thai Red Cross from "ESSO RUN" on the occasion of 125th anniversary

Mr. Jeremy R. Osterstock (3rd from left), Chairman and Managing Director, Esso (Thailand) Public Company Limited presented all proceeds (non-deductible expenses) from the charity run event "ESSO RUN: 125 years of Bonding Together, Growing the Future" at the amount of 1,879,000 Baht to Mrs. Janprapa Vichitcholchai (4th from right), Deputy Director of the Fund Raising Bureau, Thai Red Cross Society, to support the purchase of medical equipment for a newly-constructed building of Somdej Phra Boromma Ratchathewi Na Si Racha Hospital in Chonburi province.

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.  

Somdej Na Sriracha Hospital is very crowded with the mission of serving more than one million patients per year. The existing medical tools is rather old and insufficient which cannot well assist critical or emergency patients. The hospital had started the construction of a new building to serve as a holistic health care center that can provide medical treatments, preventive care, health promotion up to international standards and emergency medical care to needed patients.  The donations from this ESSO RUN event will help support the purchase of modernized medical equipment to cope with the hospital needs and services.

The Esso Run was held recently on the route around Rattanakosin Island which has the most historic and exotic landmarks in Thailand such as the Grand Palace, Giant Swing, Victory Monument, Equestrian Statue of King Chulalongkorn, Mahakan Fort, etc.  This event brought together more than 3,000 charitable runners to join and do a merit at the same time.
