Nestlé Vietnam has teamed up with the Dong Nai Labour Confederation to provide 1,000 gifts to union members and workers in difficult circumstances in the province. The company also coordinated with the Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee of Dong Nai to offer 500 Lunar New Year gifts to disadvantaged people.

In addition, Nestlé Vietnam also participated in programmes to provide Lunar New Year gifts to poor and disadvantaged women and children in four border provinces, as well as workers in industrial zones in Hung Yen province.

Other recipients were female workers in Ho Chi Minh City who cannot return to their hometown during the festive break; disadvantaged students who travel from Ho Chi Minh City to their hometowns for the holiday; and poor households, near-poor households, and orphans struggling since the pandemic emerged in 2020.

Since December, Nestlé Vietnam has donated about 54,000 units of nutritional products to more than 8,500 people in provinces and cities across the country. The donations are made through agencies and organisations including the Central Committee of the Vietnam Women's Union, Hung Yen Industrial Zones Management Authority, the Student Support Centre of the Ho Chi Minh City Youth Union, the Golden Heart Charity Social Fund under the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour, and others.

Nestlé Vietnam has also sponsored the Godmother initiative with a total value of VND1 billion ($42,660), including cash and products, as part of its strategic cooperation with the Vietnam Women's Union which will cover until 2027.

The activities are part of Nestlé Cares, a corporate social responsibility programme to contribute to the local community.
