In the joyful atmosphere to welcome Christmas and New Year 2016, Bayer Vietnam in collaboration with Live and Learn volunteering network organised an “Eco-talking” programme and fun education activities for more than 200 students at Dat Cuoc Primary School in the southern province of Binh Duong.

At the same time, the company donated some facilities to Dat Cuoc Health Station located in the same vicinity.

Especially, this community supporting event engaged many Bayer Vietnam’ employees, who voluntarily played the comedy on stage at the eco-talking event as well as joining hands to support all other related logistic works of the whole programme. 

“As a company, beside the business activities, Bayer is also a corporate citizen with social commitments to support the local community. Bayer has the tradition in doing social responsibility through social security activities to provide a better life to the people,” said Torsten Velden, managing director of Bayer Vietnam.

“In the exciting atmosphere of Christmas and New Year, we want to bring meaningful activities to the locality and also the young children,” Velden added. 

The “Eco-talking” event brought excitement to the students of Dat Cuoc Primary School with the comedy performed by Bayer Vietnam’s staff as well as the surprising appearance of Santa Claus as an ambassador to motivate the good behaviors of the young students with Christmas gifts.

The event also included funny environmental interactive experiments and quizzes with the aim to provide knowledge on climate change, encouraging them to act on environmental protection to have more sustainable life.

This is the third year the programme has been run, reaching over 10,000 young children at local primary schools. 

Dat Cuoc Health Station is a public centre that provides basic healthcare service to nearly 3,000 people in the local community. 

After 10 years in operation, many of its facilities were downgrading. With a purpose to support the local community, Bayer Vietnam provides new equipment such as fans, air-conditioners, tables and computers to help improve the quality of healthcare services.  

This is a part of Bayer Vietnam’s social activities in supporting local healthcare and social needs.

Bayer Vietnam is a subsidiary of Bayer AG, a global enterprise with core competencies in the Life Science fields of health care and agriculture. 

Bayer is committed to the principles of sustainable development and to its social and ethical responsibilities as a corporate citizen. In fiscal 2014, the group employed around 119,000 people and had sales of EUR42.2 billion ($46 billion).
