(Ho Chi Minh City, 06 October 2021) – Last weekend, food delivery app BAEMIN accompanied the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and Miss Universe Vietnam H'Hen Niê to gift 1,000 welfare bags to the disadvantaged living in Ho Chi Minh city, whose economies have not yet been stabilized after our society gradually transitioned to a new normal. Previously, BAEMIN also collaborated with the Youth Social Work Center under the Ho Chi Minh City Youth Union to give more than 6,000 free meals to individuals and households who were severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The 4th wave of Covid-19 with constant complications has brought about many challenges to the people living in Ho Chi Minh City with regards to their business, production and daily life. Whilst the Government is striving for a gradual transition to a new normal from October, there are still many people in the city who are facing serious consequences left behind by the Covid-19 pandemic.
1000 bags of essential food items were distributed with Miss Universe Vietnam H'Hen Nie
With the desire to contribute to the response and mitigation of the pandemic effects, the food delivery app BAEMIN has sided with the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union to support those residents living in difficulty. Through the reception of the Ho Chi Minh City Youth Union, along with the companionship of Miss Universe Vietnam H'Hen Niê - the ambassador of the program, BAEMIN presented 1,000 welfare bags (with the value of VND 250 million) with meaningful and creative wishes printed on the bags. These wishes were directly crowdsourced and collected by BAEMIN from loyal users, in the hope that they can spread the spirit of solidarity, bringing warmth and happiness to the recipients.

Mr. Kiwan Ihn – CEO of Woowa Brothers in Vietnam (the owner of BAEMIN) shared: “It gives us great pleasure to cooperate with the Youth Union in the journey of giving welfare bags to the people in need who are seriously impacted by the pandemic.

We always hope to join hands with our partners and stakeholders to create shared value for everyone.”
Prior to that, BAEMIN also collaborated with Ho Chi Minh City Youth Social Work Center to give more than 6,000 free meals to people in need in August. BAEMIN worked closely with local authorities and stakeholders to ensure the arrangement of human resources and preparation of ingredients to ensure the highest food safety and hygiene. Meals are prepared on a daily basis and transported to people in quarantined areas, vulnerable groups who have lost income due to the pandemic as well as the frontline medical staff.
Previously, responding to the call of the Vietnamese Government, Mr. Kim Bongjin - Chairman of BAEMIN also donated VND 20 billion to the Vietnam’s Covid-19 Vaccine Fund and other prevention and control activities.
