Mastercard and Grab Vietnam announced their renewed partnership on the “Delivery for Good” initiative for a second year in a row on December 12.

Under this year’s project, the organisations will deliver Tet packages of daily necessities to over 5,900 families in need in Ha Noi, HCM City and neighbouring provinces before the end of January 2023.

The “Delivery for Good” initiative was first introduced in 2021 amidst the fourth wave of the COVID-19 outbreak, providing over 5,000 essential packages to children and families in HCM City who had been severely impacted by the pandemic.

With the aim of “Gathering Love, Giving Better Lives”, Mastercard and Grab Vietnam are extending their mission this year to reach and provide support to more people in disadvantaged situations.

“It’s our great honour to join hands with Mastercard in this “Delivery for Good” initiative. As Grab is committed to driving Southeast Asia forward by creating economic empowerment for everyone, we’re keen on supporting ideas that care about vulnerable groups and make their lives light up with hope,” said Nguyen Thi My Hanh, Deputy Country Head, Grab Vietnam.

The programme will be facilitated directly through Grab services. For every ride and order from VND200,000 paid with a Mastercard debit or credit card in the month of November and December 2022, Mastercard will contribute the same amount to purchase Tet gift packages, which will subsequently be delivered to the beneficiaries by Grab's driver partners.

“Mastercard is delighted to continue its meaningful partnership with Grab Vietnam to help support recovery efforts within the community,” said Winnie Wong, Country Manager, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, Mastercard. — VNS
