On March 4, 2021, having recognized drought as a recurring issue, which grows increasingly serious every year, GC, PTT, the Provincial Waterworks Authority Department of Water Resources, and the Provincial Electrici ty Authori ty launched the “2021 Stopping Drought Crisis” Project at the Royal Thai Army Headquarters to mitigate the effects of drought on farmers and other groups in remote rural areas. On June 9, 2021, with Rayong as its second home, the “Greater Care by GC” brand provided coveralls and PE gowns made of plastic resin for medical personnel doing fieldwork and helping Samet Island, Rayong to become the first area in Thailand to have a 100% COVID-19 vaccination rate and the first place to use the “Tambon Health Promoting Hospital” as a vaccination location. The effort is the result of col laboration between Rayong Hospital and other organizations. GC also provided hand sanitizer, upcycled shirts for Ban Pae volunteers and Samet Island volunteers. On September 1, 2021, amid growing COVID-19 case counts, GC, GC Marketing Solutions Co., Ltd. and 84 plast ic manufactur ing partners launched the “GreaterCare Charity by GC & Customers” Project to support medical personnel in taking care of COVID-19 patients. In its primary phase, the project p r ov i ded i n t eg r a t ed p l as t i c innovations and products to field hospitals and community isolation centers in Samut Sakhon, Samut Prakan, and Rayong. In the second phase, the project granted money to the Thai Red Cross Society for the development of 200 Chula High Flow Nasal Cannula (Chula HFNC) devices to be distributed to hospitals around the country. The Chula HFNC was developed and manufactured jointly by the Thai Red Cross Society, the Chulalongkorn University Faculty of Medicine, and the alumni of the Chulalongkorn University Faculty of Engineering. It is a high-quality medical innovation developed by Thai people that is 3-4 times less expensive than imported devices and can be quickly distributed to hospitals in need in response to the COVID-19 crisis. With severe flooding in several areas in Thailand affecting people in many communities, GC organized the “GCCares for Flooding” Project to help mitigate the impact of flooding – in which GC distributed plastic rowboats that were provided to various state agencies to help people in many provinces. The plastic rowboats were made of LLDPE compound plastic resin and manufactured through a rotational molding process to ensure the rowboats are durable, strong, flexible, impact-resistant, and scratch-resistant. The rowboats are also UV-resistant and suitable for extended outdoor use. The rowboats are 90 cm wide, 3 meters long and weigh 35 kg, while accommodating 2-3 people (net weight of 200 kg). As they are made from 100% plastic, they can be recycled if damaged or not used.
