Yum China makes donation to Wuhan hospital workers
The QSR company also launched an upgraded range of corporate catering solutions.
Yum China has made a RMB3 million (US$426,000) donation to support Wuhan hospital workers amidst their ongoing fight against COVID-19.
The company’s KFC and Pizza Hut chains have provided up to 1,500 free meals daily to medical workers across hospitals in the ground zero of the new coronavirus since 27 January.
This initiative has been expanded and now, the QSR company has delivered over 70,000 free meals to almost 500 hospitals and community centers across the mainland.
Moreover, its Little Sheep brand has also donated 20,000 instant hot-pots to some organisations involved in efforts to combat the coronavirus.
“Throughout our response efforts, the health and safety of our employees and customers remains our top priority,” CEO Joey Wat said in a statement.
Earlier, Yum China has rolled out contactless delivery operations nationwide to reduce the risk of infection of COVID-19.
Besides this, the company has launched an upgraded range of corporate catering solutions as workers are increasingly returning to offices after the extended Chinese New Year break.
