Sovico Group and HDBank have donated a total of VND6.5 billion (US$262,234) for building 100 ‘great solidarity houses’ in Mang Thit and Vung Liem Districts and for supporting the Pham Hung – Vo Van Kiet Study Promotion Scholarship Fund.

The donation was made at a conference to commend social security activities in Vinh Long Province and celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of the late Prime Minister Vo Van Kiet on November 21.

The event was witnessed by Politburo member and permanent member of the Party Central Committee's Secretariat Vo Van Thuong and other senior leaders during a working visit they made to the locality.

In April this year, during President Nguyen Xuan Phuc's trip to the Mekong Delta, HDBank donated a total of VND5.2 billion ($210,066) to build digital libraries and support study promotion funds at educational institutions in Tien Giang and Can Tho.

These are a continuation of the charity activities that HDBank has been undertaking for many years across the country and in the Mekong Delta in particular.

In 2021, during the fourth wave of Covid-19, Sovico Group, HDBank and its member units also promptly supported southwestern provinces with medical equipment like ambulances and ventilators worth more than VND35 billion ($1.4 million).

With a network of more than 40 transaction points here, HDBank is focusing on supporting individual and corporate customers, contributing to the development of the local economy and delivering modern and convenient financial products and services to people there.

It has also donated health insurance cards to tens of thousands of near-poor people; funded eye surgeries for thousands of poor blind people, water purifiers for provinces suffering from saltwater intrusion in rivers, charity houses,hundreds of scholarships, and practical gifts to needy people in the region. — VNS
