To pay tribute to those who have silently made contributions to our society and community, as well as provide support to the underprivileged, Unilever Vietnam and its brands have launched the program "For a loving Tet season" on the occasion of the Lunar New Year 2023, with the spirit of spreading love during the reunion season.

Each brand bears a purpose. During nearly three decades in Vietnam, Unilever's brands have always been associated with Vietnamese people’s lives and culture. It is understood that Tet is the season of reunion and a precious event of the nation.

Therefore, Unilever Vietnam and its brands have carried out many activities to accompany and share happiness with people across the country on the occasion of the Lunar New Year 2023. Gifts are sent to show gratitude towards Vietnamese heroic mothers, frontline doctors, healthcare workers, and sanitation workers, etc.  who have contributed to building a healthier and happier Vietnam. The program also supports disadvantaged children, women, and underprivileged workers. This is also a part of Unilever Vietnam's commitment to creating a more sustainable future and a more inclusive society over the past 27 years.

Firstly, Unilever Vietnam collaborated with Vietnam Women's Union to conduct "Tet of Solidarity - Tet of the Border" project, giving 750 gifts to Vietnamese heroic mothers, families under preferential treatment policy, women in need, orphans and disadvantaged children in 6 provinces: Thua Thien Hue, Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Tay Ninh, An Giang, Dong Thap.

The company also gave more than 50,000 Unilever’s products to the professional healthcare staff at 12 hospitals in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Dak Lak with the purpose of encouraging their spirit to make a more heartwarming Tet more heartwarming for the "soldiers in white shirts" who constantly strive to take care of the patients for a healthier Vietnam.

With the campaign "Plastic reborn", Unilever Vietnam gave more than 1,000 gifts to informal waste collectors participating in the collection value chain as an act of honoring and accompanying these unsung heroes.

Together with the non-governmental organization ENDA and HCMC Urban Environment Company (CITENCO), Unilever Vietnam carried out the campaign "Grateful for action, dirty with pride" to honor people doing the country cleaning jobs and bring values to the community. This campaign gives 550 gifts to the force of waste collectors who keep the streets clean and beautiful, support them to have a more well-rounded Tet. In addition, the project also cooperated with POWAI (Power Of Wisdom and Integrity) Co., Ltd. to send 300 gifts to children orphaned by Covid-19 and their caretakers in Ho Chi Minh City. It is expected to bring the children a warmer Tet and express gratitude towards the warm-hearted volunteers who have helped and taken care of these underprivileged children.

Unilever Vietnam also cooperated with Ho Chi Minh City Association of Industrial Park Enterprises (HBA) to gift 1,000 industrial park workers under difficult circumstances due to the Covid-19 epidemic, natural disasters, storms, floods, or those who do not have enough conditions to go home to celebrate Tet.

Furthermore, Unilever also coordinated with the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) to send 400 Tet gifts to teachers and students in Vietnam’s remote areas. This Unilever's extended action to express gratitude to teachers and encourage students in underprivileged and deprived areas.

Last but not least, Unilever Vietnam joined hands with the People's Committee of District 7, Ho Chi Minh City, in the program "Year of Cat Festival'', sending 300 gift packs including personal care, home care, and nutritional products to underprivileged children in the district.

Ms. Le Thi Hong Nhi, Head of Communications and Corporate Affairs, Unilever Vietnam

"People always want to be home with their families during Tet. However, not everyone has the opportunity to celebrate a well-rounded Tet. Some people have to spend the holiday far away from their loved ones. Some people cannot afford to have a prosperous Tet. Some people sacrifice their own family time to make sure others can have a safe and happy Tet. We do not want to leave them behind. We are happy to bring gifts – personal care, home care, beauty, and nutrition products – to underprivileged people and honor those who make sacrifices and contributions to society, and spread warmth and happiness."

Ms. Nguyen Thi Hoai Linh - Director of ENDA Vietnam

"On behalf of Environmental Development Action in the third world (ENDA) Vietnam and 250 people of the self-founded waste collectors force in Dong Tam Cooperative Union, I would like to express my sincere thanks to OMO and Unilever Vietnam. These gifts not only represent support but also an act of affection, care, and respect for garbage collectors, the unsung heroes who play an essential role in the daily-life solid waste management of Ho Chi Minh City. This program helps them to feel cared, loved, and appreciated, which makes Tet a warmer and happier occasion."

Mr. Huynh Minh Nhut – HCMC Urban Environment Company (CITENCO)

"The gifts sent to the unsung heroes who directly clean, collect, and transport waste in Ho Chi Minh City encourage them to complete the environmental sanitation work during the Lunar New Year 2023. The contributions of these cleaning workers help to bring a clean and green environment for the people."
