LXML Sepon Supports Vilabouly District in COVID-19 Response

June 03, 2021

Yesterday, Lane Xang Minerals Limited (LXML) Sepon mine donated 50,000,000 kip to Vilabouly District to support COVID-19 response.

“Since the COVID-19 hit, LXML and Vilabouly District have worked closely to ensure our employees and local communities are safe from COVID-19” said Mr Saman Aneka, LXML Managing Director. “We are pleased that our contribution will support the community to respond to this second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic we’re facing.”

Vilabouly District and Savannakhet Provincial authorities introduced strict measures to prevent spread of COVID-19. Vilabouly recorded one confirmed COVID case.

Last month, LXML donated US$100,000 to the Lao Government to support the official response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Laos. LXML also provided 116,115,000 kip to Savannakhet province to build hygiene facilities at Savannakhet Field Hospital, and a further US$15,000 to Savannakhet Province for relief efforts. LXML provided another 60,000,000 kip to Vientiane and Savannakhet rescue teams to support emergency response capacity.

To date, in partnership with the Lao Government, LXML has donated US$370,000 for COVID-19 prevention and response in Lao PDR.

These contributions enhance the Lao Government’s ability to effectively issue vaccinations and introduce other preventative measures.

Thanks to the supply of vaccines provided by the Lao Ministry of Health, especially, Savannakhet Health Division, LXML has vaccinated over 90 per cent of the workforce, about 3,300 people, in the last few weeks.

LXML is committed to supporting the Lao Government’s efforts to combat COVID-19, and is maintaining strict measures to keep employees and communities safe from COVID-19.
