Hanwha Life Vietnam on May 15 received a certificate of merit from the HCM City Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs for its contributions to the community.

Le Thi Lan Huong, the department’s representative and deputy director of the Thi Nghe Protection Centre for Disabled Orphans, hailed the Korean insurance company’s efforts to mitigate the difficulties faced by disabled children.

She said most of the children at the centre are orphans with serious disabilities who face difficulties in their daily life and lack emotional support from families, and thus need the community’s support.

Every month Hanwha Life organises voluntary activities, with its staff going to the centre to take care of, play with and give gifts to the children, which offers them emotional support, she said.

Back Jong Kook, chairman and general director of Hanwha Life Vietnam, said: "As an insurance business, Hanwha Life Vietnam highly appreciates the importance of contributing back to community, especially disadvantaged people. We hope the activities of Hanwha Life will help the lives of children at the Thi Nghe Protection Centre for Disabled Orphans improve day by day.”

During its nearly nine years in Viet Nam, Hanwha has sponsored many community projects in the country, including donation of health insurance cards worth over VND9.4 billion to more than 37,500 poor people, 160 charity houses in many cities and provinces costing VND22 billion and medical centres costing billions dong to Bac Can and Hoa Binh provinces. — VNS
