Liu Qiangdong, founder of JD. com is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the internet sector. He began his organization as a booth, and with time, it grew enormous and is now among the largest internet organizations globally.
During the 2019 Covid Pandemic, he observed how people were suffering from the disease and from the lack of resources. This moved him so much and led him to decide to donate RMD 100 million yuan of materials from his organization (JD. Com). The donations were organized by “Hong Kong Community Anti-Coronavirus Link,” an organization that majors in helping the needy in Hong Kong for humanitarian reasons.
Liu Qiangdong, as the CEO of JD. Com maintained stable and consistent communications with the voluntary organization to ensure efficient services to the people and support in the fight against the virus.
In the past recent years, JD. Com has been upgrading its supply chain set-up abilities and technology with the aim of increasing its social responsibility, support, control, and prevention of the virus (COVID-19) in Hong Kong and other parts of China. In addition, they have also provided generous donations to other Asian, South American, and European countries in the fight against Covid.
During the pandemic, Liu Qiangdong and his organization provided more than 16 million supplies to the residents of Shanghai. Among the supplies were rice, cooking oil, and flour, among other things. They also specialized in the care provided for the vulnerable members of the community, including babies, pregnant women, and the sick, as they were more susceptible to the virus.
Among the many services they provided were online health consultation services that ensured people could receive treatment without making physical contact hence fewer chances of the spreading Covid-19. JD. Com collaborated with other couriers all over the country in order to ensure timely delivery of goods and medical supplements to the residents, and this led to the use of automated robots.
