To bring people together for a better world, this late November, AB InBev Vietnam launched the scholarships named “Let’s go back to school” to support orphans during this hard time.

During the fourth wave, many children lost the love and caring of their parents, leaving them bereft and alone in the face of adversity, especially those coming from poor families.

Responding to the call of diverse organisations to support children in need and following up on its commitment to provide meaningful support to the community in the fight against the pandemic, the Belgian brewer AB InBev launched the "Let’s go back to school" scholarship for 47 COVID-19 orphans. The children were selected from a list proposed by the Red Cross from Ben Cat town and the Youth Union from Tan Uyen town, with each scholarship worth VND10 million ($435).

“We have met many children who were made orphans by COVID-19. They all have their own stories, and many come from poor conditions, from illiterate parents. More than anyone, these children need our support to overcome their losses, stabilise their lives, and become good members of society,” said Truong Van Toan, head of Legal and Corporate Affairs.

“Wtih these scholarships, we want to spread a sense of responsibility with the community, creating meaningful resonance, especially for the children in difficult places such as Tan Uyen and Ben Cat. This is proof of AB InBev's purpose of bringing people together for a better world,” Toan added.
