US automaker Ford has begun this year’s Global Care Month with the Ford Fund donating US$700,000 for the implementation of humanitarian projects in 34 countries, including Viet Nam.

The company’s employees on six continents also devote time and effort to these community projects in September every year.

In Viet Nam, Ford has already contributed to the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, donating a dialysis machine worth VND1.4 billion ($61.500) to the Hai Duong Hospital of Tropical Diseases.

In collaboration with social enterprises, it will help build playgrounds, upgrade and install classroom equipment and supplement supplies and toys at two schools in mountainous areas.

In HCM City, Ford members of the Pickup and Friends Club and non-governmental organisations will donate medicines to the Home Hospital to support COVID treatment, 50 oxygen tanks in collaboration with the Binh Thanh District Union, and basic necessities to more than 1,260 low-income households and workers and employees living in difficult circumstances. — VNS
