Hyosung is supporting economic independence of 100 single mothers in Thang Binh District in Vietnam’s central province of Quang Nam.
Hyosung said on March 18 that it held a ceremony to start the "Social Contribution Project to Support Vietnamese Single Mothers’ Self-reliance" in the conference room of the People's Committee of Thang Binh, where the Company’s Quang Nam unit is located. Hyosung, which works with the international relief organization ‘Food for the Hungry’ for the program, is contributing 100 million won to support economic Independence of single mothers in Vietnam.
The project will benefit about 100 single mothers in the lowest- and second-lowest-income families in the Thang Binh District. The program, which will include education and facility support for poultry and pig farming, and delivery of livestock medical supplies, is expected to help the single mothers to secure sustainable income sources and develop self-reliance capacity.
Hyosung prepared the social contribution project as a member of the local community. It is designed to help Hyosung play a proper role as a healthy member of the community by supporting the economic independence of low-income, single-mother families in the community.
Hyosung has been actively undertaking social contribution programs in Vietnam, its largest overseas production base. As part of the programs, Hyosung has been dispatching overseas medical volunteer group "Misowonjeongdae" (smile expedition) to Dong Nai Province, near Ho Chi Minh City where its Vietnamese corporation is located.
