HSBC Vietnam Reports the First Round of the Relief Programme Result
In April this year, while Vietnam was in the unprecedented fight against COVID-19, HSBC Bank (Vietnam) Ltd. (HSBC Vietnam) joined force with WWO Vietnam, VinaCapital Foundation, SCDI in the VND3-billion relief programme “No one left behind” to help vulnerable communities in the country. After two months of execution, thanks to the brave, skillful volunteers from HSBC’s key partners, and the great support from HSBC Vietnam’s colleagues, HSBC is very proud to announce the first stage of the campaign has attained the positive results.
270,000 meals, 320 medical consultation sessions, 268 psychological counselling sessions, 679 home-based physio therapy toolkits and 550 recovery packages have been delivered to 11,000 beneficiaries. They are migrants, the homeless, off-the-book workers and disabled children with a disadvantaged background and their caregivers, who were directly or indirectly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 
Tim Evans, CEO and Chairman of the Corporate Sustainability Committee of HSBC Vietnam, shared: “We at HSBC Vietnam are proud to see that our contribution has led to tangible benefits for those people who are most in need during these challenging times. This has always been one of our priorities when we look to support the communities in which we operate. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the NGOs for their commitment, enthusiasm and can-do spirit together with the generosity of all my HSBC Vietnam colleagues who have contributed to this programme. Together they are all vital to assisting in delivering our commitments to our broader community. It should be noted that this is the first part of an overall programme that we envisage lasting until 2021. I hope that the next stages will bring additional practical benefits to people in need as we all work together to get through these testing times.”
The relief programme plans to continue supporting approximately 15,000 people more in their access to 3 clean water filtration systems in hospitals, 10 clean water filtration systems in schools, 200 recovery packages and 400 vaccinations. It aims to provide the beneficiaries with the necessary resilience in order to recover from the historic pandemic and be well prepared for any crisis that may happen in the future.
