Vietnam Beverage Co., Ltd. (VietBev) has just presented 750 Lunar New Year gifts and school equipment valued at around $32,600 to the Vietnam Fatherland Front Committees of Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, and Quang Ngai provinces.

From January 25-27, Thai-backed brewer VietBev coordinated with the Vietnam Fatherland Front Committees of the three provinces to grant Tet gifts to disadvantaged students and teachers at 15 elementary, junior, and senior high schools in these localities, hoping to bring a happy Lunar New Year holiday to the beneficiaries.

The programme has been carried out with the support and contribution of VietBev, Thai Beverage Co., Ltd., C-Asean, and the Sirivadhanabhakdi Foundation.

“We are moved to be here before Lunar New Year and present the gifts. Albeit small, we want to show our love towards students and teachers at the schools that were hit hard by natural disasters over the past years,” said Nguyen Hai Son, representative of VietBev.

We hope that the school equipment will create more favourable and safer conditions for the students. In the future, we will look for opportunities to continue our support for these areas, especially in terms of disaster prevention and school support.”

Son added, “Since children are the future of the country, through our corporate social responsibility activities, we pay close attention to children and would like to create favourable conditions for their living and learning. All the recipients this time were those severely affected by natural disasters since 2020.”

Given the combined targets of sustainable business growth and corporate social responsibility, VietBev has implemented and participated in diverse activities concerning education for future generations.

The donation is part of the programme to support schools in these three central provinces. In February 2021, VietBev, representing the four sponsors, handed over $65,200 to the Central Committee of the Vietnam Fatherland Front in an attempt to repair damaged schools and buy new equipment for schools in the three localities of Quang Ngai, Quang Binh, and Ha Tinh.

There are seven recipient schools in Ha Tinh province. In Quang Ngai province, the local Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee and VietBev presented gifts to three schools and in Quang Binh province, gifts and school equipment were granted to five schools.

Given the combined targets of sustainable business growth and corporate social responsibility, VietBev has implemented and participated in diverse activities concerning education for future generations.

In 2019-2020, the company was the bronze and silver sponsor for the Swing for the Kids golf tournament under the scholarship fund of Vietnam Investment Review to support needy, yet brilliant students.

Last June, in response to the appeal of the Vietnamese government, TCC Group – the parent group of ThaiBev and VietBev – in coordination with the Sirivadhanabhakdi Foundation, has contributed $1 million to the purchase of COVID-19 vaccines.

ThaiBev – a leading beverage producer and also the top beer producer in Thailand – via VietBev, started investing in Vietnam’s leading brewer SABECO in 2017. ThaiBev is also very active in sustainable development, with support related to education and tackling the results of natural disasters in Thailand.

In the coming time, the company aims to increase support for sustainable development in Vietnam, particularly in education and overcoming natural disasters.
