“I am deeply touched as our Lunar New Year programme is always wholeheartedly supported by Generali’s staff and agents,” said Tina Nguyen, CEO at Generali Vietnam. The Tomorrow for our Children campaign this year is especially meaningful as it aims to share and ease the pain of loss with underprivileged children who were severely impacted by the pandemic. We hope that our gifts and acts of kindness will be a source of encouragement, motivating the children to live a healthy, happy, and optimistic life.”

In 2021, Generali pledged $700,000 for the community’s COVID-19 emergency responses, stepping up the digitalisation of its flagship community education programme Sinh Con, Sinh Cha, implemented online and offline during the pandemic.

Generali has recently also pledged over $1.13 million to the Integrated Early Childhood Development Holistic Parenting project jointly organised by UNICEF, The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA), The Human Safety Net, Generali Vietnam, and Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Generali Vietnam has recently received organisational and individual commendations from the MoLISA Minister in recognition of its outstanding contributions to the community’s COVID-19 emergency responses as well as Vietnamese children’s well-being and protection in 2021. Prior to that, Generali was also awarded the Saigon Times CSR 2021 certification.
