MGN Emperor holds large Covid-19 blessing ceremony

Three hundred monks, including patriarchs, from across the Kingdom were in attendance as MGN Emperor Bank held its second biggest Buddhist blessing ceremony at its headquarters in Phnom Penh last Saturday.

The bank’s CEO Om Visal and staff held the blessing -- which was presided over by Men Sam An, Minister of National Assembly-Senate Relations and Inspection -- to pray for its employees and the whole of Cambodia as the Covid-19 outbreak intensifies.

The event offered blessings for good health and peace as the coronavirus continues to spread throughout the world.

Visal called on everyone to, like MGN Emperor Bank, practise good hygiene and make sure all precautions are taken in combating the disease.

“We need to all work together and pay the strictest attention in the fight against the coronavirus and ensure the sustainable operation of financial institutions,” Visal said.

MGN Emperor Bank has taken strict precautions against the disease by regularly providing Covid-19 care packages -- including face masks and hand sanitisers -- to its employees.

The bank also measures body temperature and disinfects both employees and customers before they enter its premises, and Visal strongly urged everyone to follow the precautions outlined by the Ministry of Health.

These include to regularly wash hands thoroughly, avoid touching the face, make sure food is well cooked before eating and practise social distancing.

He also encouraged all companies to provide their staff with appropriate Covid-19 care packages and to be highly alert for any symptoms, such as a high body temperature, a fever, a cough and difficulties breathing.
