Apart from spending over VND1.6 billion on building 17 houses and repairing three homes, the firm will also offer support to repair public restrooms in the commune.

Coteccons aims to complete the support project prior to the Lunar New Year holiday, or Tet, so that the poor households can live in safe new houses and enjoy the Tet holiday.

Tran Huu Anh, team leader of this project, is present in Huong Phung Commune to supervise the process and quality of construction.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, which was attended by Coteccons Chairman Bolat Duisenov, Huong Phung Chairman Nguyen Khac Huy, the Saigon Times Group’s Editor-in-Chief Tran Minh Hung, a representative from the government of the commune, Phan Ngoc Long, said that this prompt support will help residents overcome difficulties caused by the recent floods, storms and landslides.

“As part of the development of Coteccons, we have targeted to become a good and responsible firm. Social responsibility is one of the core values we are focusing on, aside from providing the best services to customers, to share difficulties with unlucky people in the community,” said Coteccons Chairman Bolat Duisenov.

As one of the leading building and construction corporations in Vietnam, Coteccons has brought happiness and provided meaningful gifts to needy people, helping them resume normal life after hardships.

In the coming months, the firm will call on other enterprises, organizations and individuals to join more charity programs and build more houses, hospitals, schools and playgrounds for poor people and the future generation of Vietnam, according to Coteccons.
