HCMC – Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) Vietnam on November 30 granted scholarships to 47 children orphaned by the Covid-19 pandemic in the southern province of Binh Duong.
After the fourth wave of Covid, which began in late April, many children lost the love and care from their parents and became orphans, the company said in a statement, adding that the pain of losing parents and loved ones is big, especially for children from poor families, who already face challenges.
Responding to the call to help children and provide meaningful support to the community in the fight against the pandemic, AB InBev Vietnam supported the scholarship program “Let’s Go Back to School” for 47 children who lost their primary caregivers due to Covid.
The scholarship recipients came from a list proposed by the Red Cross Society of Ben Cat Town and the Youth Union of Tan Uyen Town. Each scholarship is worth VND10 million.
“I met the orphans and each of them has a different story. Many of them have lived in poor conditions,” said Truong Van Toan, head of Legal and Corporate Affairs at AB InBev Vietnam.
“Through this meaningful activity, we also want to spread a sense of responsibility among the community, to create meaningful resonance, especially for children in difficult places such as Tan Uyen and Ben Cat. This is proof of our purpose to bring people together for a better world.”
