Chinese president Xi Jinping on July 17 chaired a leadership meeting on the flood control and relief work. Xi stressed putting people's lives and property first and taking more forceful measures to do a good job in flood control and relief work.
GPHL provided service personnel with necessary supplies, such as the Antiviral Oral Liquid, Compound Ganmaoling Pills and Pithecellobium Anti-inflammation Pills produced by HCPF; Rendan (heatstroke relief) produced by Wanglaoji Health; and Essential Balm and Compound Dexamethasone Acetate Cream produced by He Ji Gong.
"At this critical time, the commanders and soldiers stay in the flood-affected region to assist people and their property in many ways, including rescue efforts. As a company, we are obligated to do what we need to", said Chen Zhizhao.
Sticking to the commitment of ‘love for the world’, GPHL has always given back to society, such as making donations to help communities in need.
