“We are always aware of an enterprise’s responsibility to society, community and people in disadvantaged circumstances.”

Over the past 10 years the fund has received over VND300 billion (US$12.9 million) worth of donations.

It has used that money to build primary and preschools, medical centres and cultural houses, and organised workshops to teach hundreds of students disaster prevention, and provided emergency assistance to tens of thousands of families across the country affected by natural disasters. — VNS
