BẮC KẠN — Hanwha Life Vietnam in partnership with Child Fund (Korea) and Child Fund Vietnam on Tuesday gifted a new medical centre costing US$100,000 to Lãng Ngâm Commune in Bắc Kạn Province’s Ngân Sơn District.
The donation aims to improve healthcare and living standards in the remote area.
This is the third such medical centre that Hanwha has set up in the northern mountains, where residents still find it difficult to access healthcare services.
The other two are in Bắc Phong Commune, Hòa Bình Province (2015), and Kim Truy Commune, Kim Bôi District, Hòa Bình Province (2016).
In more than eight years of operations in Việt Nam, Hanwha has sponsored many community projects.
Between 2014 and 2016 Hanwha gifted health insurance cards to more than 27,260 poor people in 14 provinces and cities around the country, helping ease the burden of medical expenses on them and enabling better treatment.
This year Hanwha has continued to collaborate with the HCM City Sponsoring Association for Poor Patients, donating more than 9,500 health insurance cards worth nearly VNĐ2 billion to poor people in HCM City, Thanh Hóa, Nghệ An, Hà Tĩnh, Đắc Nông, Kon Tum, Quảng Trị, and Cà Mau. — VNS
