South Korean-backed insurer Hanwha Life Vietnam, in tandem with the Sponsoring Association for Poor Patients in Ho Chi Minh City, has been donating free health insurance cards to needy people in Vietnam with an aim of improving healthcare conditions for people in a difficult stituation due to the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic.  

The rate of needy households in Vietnam has been declining significantly in the wake of constantly improving state social wellbeing policies that drew many organisations, businesses, and individuals on board to promote this noble cause.

To help Vietnamese people who face adversity in life to manage a better life, for the past seven years Hanwha Life Vietnam has been carrying out a community-oriented programme through which the company has donated free health insurance cards to people in need.

This year, the company has donated 3,257 healthcare insurance cards to the poor in four cities and provinces including Ho Chi Minh City, Lam Dong, Ninh Thuan, and Ben Tre with a total budget reaching VND974 million ($42,350).

The project was officially kicked off by the recent sponsorship ceremony between Hanwha Life Vietnam and the Ho Chi Minh City Sponsoring Association for Poor Patients. This is the seventh consecutive year that Hanwha implements this project and this year the project gains more meaning with the backdrop of the serious health impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Hanwha Life Vietnam hopes that the health insurance cards will support the poor community to more conveniently access medical checkup and treatment.

Hanwha Life Vietnam has funded more than VND30 billion ($1.3 million) for many community projects in the past 11 years. Along with this, the company has handed over 53,570 health insurance cards for the poor, built more than 160 charity houses, and opened five healthcare centres across the country.

In addition, the company has built two nurseries and primary schools, awarded many scholarships, bicycles, and organised several other volunteer activities to help disadvantaged children in many localities.
