HCM CITY — A 3-km charity walk was held on Sunday as part of an effort to raise VNĐ500 million (US$21,929) by December to benefit disadvantaged youth from five social welfare centres in HCM City and Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province.

The walk attracted more than 500 attendees, including adults and children.

Participants included representatives from HCM City Department of Culture and Sports and District 7 People’s Committee staff and their families as well as friends and partners of Kingsmen Vietnam Co Ltd, and youth from social welfare centres.

The walk in District 7 was part of Kingsmen Vietnam’s corporate social responsibility campaign. The company is part of the Kingsmen Group, which provides communication design and production services.

After the walk, a pop-up store road show will begin in November at major shopping malls in HCM City, including Saigon Centre, SC ViVoCity and Crescent Mall, selling mass-produced Humpty Dumpty statues to raise funds from the public.

The statues were designed by five winners from the five social welfare centres in the Humpty Dumpty Design Contest. — VNS
