Following the tradition of service to the community, Doosan Vina joined in the 5th Doosan Day of Community Service (DDCS) and spent the whole day helping people in the community.

70 employee volunteers renovated, upgraded and cleaned the homes of four families in Binh Thuan commune, Binh Son district, Quang Ngai province. Doosan Vina’s employees will be part of a global initiative that will see thousands of Doosan employees worldwide work to help their neighbours.

Doosan Vina’s employees renovated four houses which were old and in dire need of repair. The elderly owners were physically and financially unable to make the urgently needed improvements so the DDCS effort was well timed.

The Doosan Vina volunteers renovated the roof, doors and windows, fixed electrical system, painted the walls and cleaned each of the four homes. In addition, the owners of each home were also gifted with household goods valued at around VND20 million ($870). The total amount of money spent for the renovations was nearly VND100 million ($4,348), which does not count the donated labour and materials.

Eighty-three year old widow Nguyen Thi Loi said through tears, “My income is too low and my sons and daughters work very far from home. I am not physically able to do the repairs myself so the condition has just continued to get worse. Doosan Vina’s help has come at a very good time and the upgrade will allow me to stay dry when the rains come, which will be good for my health. My children worry about me, but they can only do so much. This will ease the burden on me and my family. Thank you so much.”

“This is the 4th time I’ve joined in DDCS. The day is really an encouragement because I can see the good we are doing and have a chance to meet the people we are helping. These elderly members of our community deserve to be looked after and it warms my heart to be able to help, and to work for a company that supports this type of service,” said employee Nguyen Tan Thuan.

Since the first DDCS on October 24, 2014, thousands of Doosan employees around the world have joined the programme.

“I am so proud of our employees when I see them working hard and with such enthusiasm to help their fellow citizens. We believe programmes like this will make life better in the community and we will continue to coordinate with local leaders to find ways to improve life for the residents in our community,” said Yeon In Jung, Doosan Vina’s CEO.
