Hanwha Life Vietnam has partnered with the Sponsoring Association for Poor Patients (SAPP), a charity organization based in Ho Chi Minh City, to assist with its community support program.
The program was officially launched on March 22nd, 2017 at an official signing ceremony hosted by Hanwha Life Vietnam and the SAPP. At the signing ceremony, a gift of 310 health insurance cards worth $8,130 were issued to disadvantaged families in Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Binh District. The remaining health insurance cards will be donated to poor people in Thanh Hoa, Nghe An, Ha Tinh, Dak Nong, Kon Tum, Quang Tri and Ca Mau. By the end of the year, Hanwha Life Vietnam plans to sponsor more than 9,500 health insurance cards (valued at $87,500) for those living in poverty across Vietnam.
This is the fourth year in a row that Hanwha Life Vietnam and the association have worked together to increase healthcare access for those in need. In the last three years, Hanwha Life Vietnam has provided more than $275,620 to the program, benefitting 27,260 people nationwide.
The company has also carried out various other charitable activities across the country that have demonstrated Hanwha’s strong commitment to the community. Since 2013, new houses, schools and medical centers worth $962,500 were all donated.
For its contributions to society, Hanwha Life Vietnam was given the 2015 Corporate Social Responsibility Award by Vietnam’s Ministry of Planning & Investment and Korea’s Ministry of Trade, Industry & Energy.
