With Lunar New Year just around the corner, Coca-Cola Vietnam – together with Vietnam Red Cross, the Women's Union, and the People's Committee – is once again bringing the warmth of new beginnings as it sets to connect and give out a cumulative support of almost $115,000 to more communities in the country this year.

Coca-Cola, through its partnership with the Vietnam Red Cross, is providing $220.85-scholarships to around 100 secondary and high school students from pandemic-hit households in Binh Phuoc and Ho Chi Minh City. An additional 100 underserved families will receive livelihood assistance to help them restart and improve their income.
