HCM CITY — Hanwha Life Insurance Co., Ltd (Vietnam) in collaboration with the Việt Nam Association for Protection of Child's Rights, ChildFund Korea and ChildFund Vietnam have launched a programme called “An Yên Cho Em” to give gifts to 1,000 children affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The gifts, worth a total of VNĐ1.2 billion (US$51,850) and including school supplies, uniforms and others, will be given to children in Nhà Bè District in HCM City, Ba Vì District in Hà Nội, Quỳnh Lưu and Diễn Châu districts in Nghệ An Province, and Tân Lạc District in Hòa Bình Province.
The first ceremony to give them away was held in Nhà Bè District on July 14. They will be given in Hà Nội, Nghệ An and Hòa Bình on July 15, 16 and 18.
Besides giving the gifts, An Yên Cho Em also carries out meaningful activities on social media at toichonanyen.hanwhalife.com.vn like calling on the community to join hands to send good wishes to children and show concern for disadvantaged children affected by the pandemic.
Im Dong Jun, CEO and chairman of the member council of the insurance company, said: “Children are the most disadvantaged and vulnerable in terms of education and medical care when their parents lose their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I hope that the programme will prove our commitment to helping children and their families avoid financial difficulties before the new school year and get proper healthcare.”
Hanwha has spent nearly VNĐ3.8 billion ($163,606) to donate 8,000 personal protective outfits to the Hà Nội and HCM City health departments, 3,257 health insurance cards to poor people, 175 units of blood, hand sanitisers, and masks.
In its 11 years in Việt Nam, it has spent over VNĐ30 billion ($1.29 million) on building schools, health centres, charity houses, and carrying out other charity programmes. — VNS
