HansaeYes24 Foundation and Hansae Vietnam Co Ltd held a ceremony at Sheraton Saigon Hotel on April 18 to donate books.

The event, as part of the second “Ten thousand books – Plenty of love” book donation program, was attended by representatives of the HCMC Department of Education and Training, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, the Korean Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KoCham), primary schools in HCMC, HCMC Book Distribution Corporation (Fahasa), and Vietnamese and Korean media.

The program provides books for primary schools in HCMC, and cultivates the love of reading among students.

With the support of the Primary Division under the HCMC Department of Education and Training, the HansaeYes24 Foundation has selected and presented 10,000 books to 100 primary schools in HCMC plus a bookshelf for each school. 

Founded in 2001, Hansae Vietnam Co Ltd has a plant producing garments for export at the Northwestern Cu Chi Industrial Zone, with more than 10,000 employees.

HansaeYes24 Foundation was established in 2014 by Kim Dong Nyung, Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Hansae Yes24 Holdings Co Ltd, to promote the cultural, social and human-to-human relationship between South Korea and partner countries.

In Vietnam, the foundation has carried out a number of programs such as an amateur golf tournament for young female golfers in 2016 and financial support for the Conservatory of Music in HCMC to seek and train young talent.
