Keppel Land Vietnam expressed its community spirit by sending 40 volunteers to spend the day reaching out and engaging with residents of adopted charities Mother La Vang Home and Phan Sinh Home in the southern province of Dong Nai.
This is the fourth consecutive year that staff from Keppel Land Vietnam has supported these two homes, which provide shelter for less privileged children, orphans and elderly people with special needs.
In addition to contributing their time and effort, staff as well as their families and friends raised over VND90 million for basic necessities such as food, clothes and water filtration systems for the homes.
“At Keppel Land, we believe in giving back to the community wherever we operate. We will constantly seek ways to contribute meaningfully to the well-being of the communities and to support the less fortunate,” said Linson Lim, president of Keppel Land Vietnam.
Keppel Land is developing a waterfront township project in Dong Nai. The development will feature around 7,850 homes including townhouses, villas and high-rise apartments with various commercial facilities.
The property developer is also sponsoring the Words on Wheels (WoW) mobile library project in Hanoi. Launched in March last year, this is an initiative with the Singapore International Foundation in partnership with the Hanoi Public Library.
The program aims to raise literacy levels by providing 4,000 Hanoi village children across 10 different villages access to 1,500 English and Vietnamese books, six computer terminals with internet access, as well as educational games and toys.
Keppel Land is one of the largest foreign real estate investors in Vietnam. Keppel Land has 18 projects in Vietnam, with total investment capital of almost US$2 billion and a pipeline of around 22,000 homes.
