HCM CITY — Mondelez Kinh Do announced that since January 2022, the company has donated more than VNĐ9.6 billion (US$386,000) of products to the community through a partnership with Food Bank Vietnam. 

Accordingly, to respond to calls for food relief and to support people to overcome difficulties, Mondelez Kinh Do donated 17,000 boxes of its confectionery products to frontline medical workers, disadvantaged people and kids in remote areas.  

Approximately 104,000 people have received support from Mondelez Kinh Do through Red Cross Vietnam, hospitals, medical clinics, shelters, open houses, nursing homes, and orphanages across the country. 

Joining hands with social organisations to spread the spirit of mutual support and solidarity, Mondelez Kinh Do staff took part in various meaningful volunteering activities like “Bếp yêu thương - Love Kitchen” (preparing meals for people in difficult situations), “Cháo mùa thu - Autumn's Congee” in Hanoi, and a Food Sharing Day event organised by Food Bank Vietnam.

Volunteers from the Mondelez Kinh Do team also carried out Go green activities, collected garbage at the office for recycling, and participated in a waste classification project in partnership with Green Connect to drive education and raise awareness of environmental sustainability.
