The comprehensive disaster relief plan offers immediate, practical, and sustainable support to thousands of disadvantaged families seriously impacted by the recent flooding in 35 districts of the central provinces of Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien-Hue, Quang Nam, and Quang Ngai, as well as Danang.

The funding for the programme comes from the GenCare charity fund contributed by Generali Vietnam staff, agents, and the company in general.

The programme itself consists of wide-ranging major activities under which the Italian-backed insurer will partner with the National Fund for Vietnamese Children to directly deliver donations in cash and in-kind to over 1,000 disadvantaged families in the affected provinces. The company’s donations include cash, food and non-food necessities, clothes, school furniture and supplies, and water filters, among others.

Generali Vietnam will also partner with Hue Central Hospital to provide free-of-charge health checks and medicines to approximately 7,500 people exposed to health risks caused by recent flooding in Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien-Hue, and Quang Nam.

In addition, the company will sponsor a UNICEF programme providing support to children and women in Central Vietnam who are suffering from severe stress, anxiety, and mental trauma due to the loss of their parents and loved ones in the disaster.

“I am deeply touched by the compassion, kindness, and generosity of Generali Vietnam’s staff and agents.

Reditude, along with our concrete actions, reaffirms our commitment to becoming a lifetime partner to millions of Vietnamese families.”
