Hanwha Life Insurance Co., Ltd (Vietnam) in collaboration with the Viet Nam Association for Protection of Child's Rights, ChildFund Korea and ChildFund Vietnam have launched a programme called “An Yen Cho Em” to give gifts to 1,000 children affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The gifts, worth a total of VND1.2 billion (US$51,850) and including school supplies, uniforms and others, will be given to children in Nha Be District in HCM City, Ba Vi District in Ha Noi, Quynh Luu and Dien Chau districts in Nghe An Province, and Tan Lac District in Hoa Binh Province.

The first ceremony to give them away was held in Nha Be District on July 14. They will be given in Ha Noi, Nghe An and Hoa Binh on July 15, 16 and 18.

Besides giving the gifts, An Yen Cho Em also carries out meaningful activities on social media at toichonanyen.hanwhalife.com.vn like calling on the community to join hands to send good wishes to children and show concern for disadvantaged children affected by the pandemic.

Im Dong Jun, CEO and chairman of the member council of the insurance company, said: “Children are the most disadvantaged and vulnerable in terms of education and medical care when their parents lose their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I hope that the programme will prove our commitment to helping children and their families avoid financial difficulties before the new school year and get proper healthcare.”

Hanwha has spent nearly VND3.8 billion ($163,606) to donate 8,000 personal protective outfits to the Ha Noi and HCM City health departments, 3,257 health insurance cards to poor people, 175 units of blood, hand sanitisers, and masks.

In its 11 years in Viet Nam, it has spent over VND30 billion ($1.29 million) on building schools, health centres, charity houses, and carrying out other charity programmes. — VNS
