Unilever Vietnam launched the "For a loving Tet season" programme to pay tribute to those who have silently made contributions to our society and community as well as provide support to the underprivileged on the occasion of (Tet) Lunar New Year 2023.

Unilever Vietnam collaborated with Vietnam Women's Union to conduct "Tet of Solidarity – Tet of the Border" project, giving 750 gifts to heroic Vietnamese mothers and families under the preferential treatment policy, and women in need, orphans and disadvantaged children in six provinces, including Thua Thien Hue, Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Tay Ninh, An Giang and Dong Thap.

The company also gave more than 50,000 Unilever products to the professional healthcare staff at 12 hospitals in Ha Noi, HCM City and Dak Lak with the purpose of encouraging their spirit and making Tet more heart-warming for the "soldiers in white shirts" who constantly strive to take care of patients for a healthier Viet Nam.

With the campaign "Plastic reborn", Unilever Vietnam gave more than 1,000 gifts to informal waste collectors participating in the collection value chain as an act of honouring these unsung heroes.

Together with the non-governmental organization ENDA and HCMC Urban Environment Company (CITENCO), Unilever Vietnam donated 550 gifts to waste collectors who keep the streets clean and beautiful, supporting them to have a better-rounded Tet. In addition, the company also cooperated with POWAI (Power Of Wisdom and Integrity) Co., Ltd. to donate 300 gifts to children orphaned by COVID-19 and their caretakers in HCM City. It is expected to bring the children a warmer Tet and express gratitude towards the warm-hearted volunteers who have helped and taken care of these underprivileged children.

Unilever Vietnam also cooperated with the HCM City Association of Industrial Park Enterprises (HBA) to provide gifts to 1,000 industrial park workers under difficult circumstances due to the COVID-19 epidemic, natural disasters, storms, floods, or those who do not have enough resources to go home to celebrate Tet.

Furthermore, Unilever also coordinated with the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) to send 400 Tet gifts to teachers and students in Viet Nam’s remote areas.

Last but not least, Unilever Vietnam joined hands with the People's Committee of District 7, HCM City, to provide 300 gift packs, including personal care, home care, and nutritional products, to underprivileged children in the district.

"We are happy to bring gifts – personal care, home care, beauty, and nutrition products – to underprivileged people and honour those who make sacrifices and contributions to society, and spread warmth and happiness," said Le Thi Hong Nhi, Head of Communications and Corporate Affairs, Unilever Vietnam. — VNS
