HCM CITY — Hanwha Life Vietnam has received a certificate of merit from the HCM City Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs for its contributions to the community.
Lê Thị Lan Hương, the department’s representative and deputy director of the Thị Nghè Protection Centre for Disabled Orphans, hailed the Korean insurance company’s efforts to mitigate the difficulties faced by disabled children.
She said most of the children at the centre are orphans with serious disabilities who face difficulties in their daily life and lack emotional support from families, and really need the community’s support.
Every month Hanwha Life organises voluntary activities, with its staff taking care of the children, playing with them and handing out gifts, which also provides the youngsters with emotional support, she said.
Back Jong Kook, chairman and general director of Hanwha Life Vietnam, said: "As an insurance business, Hanwha Life Vietnam highly appreciates the importance of contributing back to community, especially disadvantaged people. We hope the activities of Hanwha Life will help the lives of children at the Thị Nghè Protection Centre for Disabled Orphans improve day by day.”
During its nine years in Việt Nam, Hanwha has sponsored many community projects in the country, including donation of health insurance cards worth more than VNĐ9.4 billion to more than 37,500 poor people, 160 charity houses in many cities and provinces costing VNĐ22 billion and medical centres costing billions of đồng to Bắc Kạn and Hòa Bình provinces. — VNS
