Hosting its first community event as Keppel Volunteers Vietnam, the CSR team under Keppel Land (Vietnam) hosted underprivileged children from Vinh Son Primary School in a sustainable art workshop at tiNiWorld Edutainment Center, a tenant in the Saigon Centre retail mall.

Mr Linson Lim, President (Vietnam) of Keppel Land, shared, “In line with being OneKeppel, the volunteers in our group will identify themselves as Keppel Volunteers wherever they operate.”

During the workshop, 20 Keppel Volunteers shared with 40 children the importance of caring for the environment and the value of recycling.

The volunteers and children created interesting articles by recycling stationery and paper rolls with environmental slogans such as ‘Protect the Earth’.

Offering encouragement to the volunteers in their initiative, Dr Lee and Mr Ang attended the event to interact with the children and present them with schoolbags.

Keppel Land (Vietnam) has supported Vinh Son Primary School, a private free school for underprivileged children, since April 2015 by donating uniforms, electronic equipment, school textbooks, books and bookshelves.
