CapitaLand, through its philanthropic arm CapitaLand Hope Foundation (CHF), and its wholly owned lodging business unit, the Ascott Limited (Ascott) have teamed up with the Vietnam Red Cross Society to donate COVID-19 care kits to more than 1,400 students at four CapitaLand Hope Primary Schools and Kindergartens in Viet Nam.

Each care kit contains antimicrobial fabric masks, liquid hand soap, hand sanitiser and a packet of milk.

More than 40 staff volunteers from the Ascott distributed the care kits to the students at the Le Xa Hope Kindergarten in Hung Yen Province , the Tan Tay Hope Kindergarten and the Thanh Phuoc Primary Hope School in Long An Province, and the Quang Yen Primary Hope School (Phu Tho Province). The Viet Nam Red Cross Society also taught the students personal hygiene tips to protect their own health.

Tan Seng Chai, Chief Corporate & People Officer for CapitaLand Group and Executive Director of CapitaLand Hope Foundation said: “CapitaLand is committed to providing opportunities to underprivileged children with a better future by focusing on their education, healthcare and shelter needs through CapitaLand Hope Schools. In this challenging time, our vulnerable communities need our support the most. The care kits and personal hygiene tips by Vietnam Red Cross Society will help to further strengthen the children’s resilience against COVID-19.” — VNS
