In November 2020, Chubb Life Insurance Vietnam Company Limited (Chubb Life Vietnam) has launched “Chubb Life Vietnam – Am tinh mien Trung”, a community-driven initiative to donate more than 15,000 coats to children across 12 provinces badly affected by October’s floods.

People in central Vietnam are struggling to recover from the impact of reoccurant natural disasters. Infrastructure has been devastated, properties swept away, and thousands of children are struggling to return to school. With the goal of supporting the education of these children, “Chubb Life Vietnam – Am tinh mien Trung” has given away over 15,000 new coats to underprivileged students in badly affected provinces, including Thua Thien Hue, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Ha Tinh, Quang Ngai, Nghe An, Quang Nam, Gia Lai, Kon Tum, Phu Yen, Binh Dinh, Dak Lak. The donations were made by the Company, Chubb Life Vietnam’s Board of Directors, staff and sales teams across the country.

In addition, through this initiative, our employees have embraced giving back to the community, which is one of Chubb Life Vietnam’s core values”.
