Today, representatives from AES Vietnam visited and presented Tet gifts to a number of disadvantaged households in Song Phan and Son My Communes, Ham Tan District, Binh Thuan Province as part of the celebration of the upcoming Tet (Lunar New Year) festival.
The ceremony was organized in cooperation with the People’s Committees of Song Phan and Son My Communes, with the attendance of representatives from local authorities, beneficiary households, and AES Vietnam.
Following the handover of Tet gifts in Binh Thuan Province, in mid-January 2023, AES Vietnam’s representatives will come and present Tet gifts to disadvantaged households and children in Quang Ninh Province. Each household receives a gift set valued at VND500,000, which includes basic commodities for Tet.
Speaking about the initiative, Mr. Joseph Uddo, President of AES Vietnam, said, “At AES, we are committed to social and economic development by providing safe, affordable, and reliable energy to Vietnam. ‘All together’ is one of our important values and we want to bring this value to the communities in which we operate. With this activity, we hope to offer a warmer and more meaningful festive period to the poor, so Tet can be celebrated in every household and no one is left behind.”
Mr. Hoang Tuy, Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of Son My Commune, said, “AES Vietnam has provided significant support for the locality and community since 2020 in the fields of Education, Healthcare and facilities. Taking this opportunity, on the behalf of the local authorities and people, I would like to express my sincere thanks to the leaders and employees of AES Vietnam for their support and contributions to the locality. I appreciate the company’s cooperation with us to visit, support and encourage disadvantaged households in the community during the upcoming Lunar New Year.”
The donation of Tet gifts is part of AES’ social impact program, which aims to improve the quality of life for local communities. Over the past 15 years, AES and its subsidiaries have implemented 135 CSR programs, focusing on four key pillars – Health, Education, Livelihoods and Infrastructure – contributing to making a permanent difference and improving the quality of life of more than 200,000 people in local communities in Vietnam.
