Hyosung raised funds at the Hyosung Championship, and donated libraries to Vietnam Mar.12, 2018


Hyosung delivered a mini library, purchased with the funds raised by Hyosung Championship Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) and the contributions from the subsidiary and its employees, to schools in Vietnam, and hung up the signboard on March 9.

Kim Gyeong-ja, executive managing director of KLPGA, Yoo Seon-hyeong, managing director of Hyosung, an official from Nhon Trach Education Office attended the signboard hanging ceremony.

Last December, Hyosung used the proceeds from the sale of raffle tickets during the Hyosung Championship, held near Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, as well as the contributions from the subsidiary and its employees, to donate a mini library to Bintan Elementary School in Nhon Trach, Dong Nai Province where Hyosung’s place of business is located.

Hyosung remodeled the interior of the old school and turned it into a library, and donated more than 100 books so that students who cannot afford to read books often can have increased chances to read and nurture dreams about their future. The company also donated over 10 computers so that the students can search the web whenever they are curious about something. Since 2015, Hyosung has donated 5 mini libraries to elementary schools near its place of business, including Phuoc Thien Elementary School and Hiep Phuoc Elementary School.

In addition, Hyosung’s overseas medical volunteers group ‘Smile Expedition’ carefully checked students with poor vision during their volunteer activities in Vietnam last November together with Korea Food for the Hungry International, and Hyosung is planning to make glasses for a total of 30 students.

Meanwhile, Chairman Cho Hyun-joon met Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc last February, and agreed to invest $1.3 billion in Vietnam and build an additional plant, and expand local businesses, including chemicals, heavy industries and construction, as well spandex and tire cords, the world-leading products of Hyosung.
