OPERATION SMILE WORKS IN CLOSE COLLABORATION WITH SIKA AND MOMO ON NEW PROJECTS
As one of the world’s leading specialty chemical companies, Sika has built a strategic partnership with Operation Smile Vietnam. Over the past 10 years, Sika has helped thousands of Vietnam children to have new smiles. Besides huge financial donations, the company’s employees dedicatedly participated in surgical missions and donated their time and efforts as non-medical volunteers. By doing so, they understand more about the work and the meaning of giving, as well as contribute to the success of those missions.
In an attempt to continue the medical treatments in 2021, Sika Vietnam donates an amount of VND 700,000,000 to surgical funds of Operation Smile which helps provide 70 free surgeries for children born with cleft conditions.
Besides, in collaboration with MoMo, Sika and Operation Smile Vietnam ask for support from the community in a campaign on MoMo to achieve the goal of 3,500,000 Golden Pigs donated. Direct link to donate Golden Pig: https://tinyurl.com/sikamomoos.
Meanwhile, another campaign is happening with the aim to raise funds to conduct 25 surgeries for children in DakLak. You can make your donation here: https://tinyurl.com/daklak2021.
