Three-day market starts today as part of the charity program of employees at Doosan Vina Heavy Industries Vietnam.
Doosan Vina Heavy Industries Vietnam has organized a flea market as part of their employees’ charity efforts, being held for three days starting today.
After a month of collecting they gathered together more than a thousand items that were then sorted, cleaned and categorized. The items range from cookware and computers to bicycles and blouses. Hosted by the Organizational Culture (OC) Department at Doosan Vina, items began flooding in as soon after the flea market was announced. The OC team sorted out the goods according to type of merchandise, value, condition, and age.
“It was a great idea, everyone had fun and found some bargains and the money raised will help the needy in the community,” said Mr. Lee Sung Hoon, Deputy General Director. “I hope it becomes an annual event and that it grows bigger and bigger each year.”
The charity flea market was the latest in a series of charity and corporate social responsibility (CSR) projects supported by Doosan Vina.
Since starting in 2009 Doosan Vina has spent more than $5.5 million on charitable and CSR programs. Some of the more notable activities include bringing a team of doctors from South Korea to Vietnam each year, renovating schools, providing more than $190,000 in scholarships to Vietnamese students, donating a $1 million desalination plant to people on An Binh Island in central Quang Ngai province, and much, much more.
