Apart from blessings that the children will overcome their current difficulties, Bridgestone Vietnam presented the children with a new playground which was designed with recycled tires. Other activities conducted include games at the new playground and a campfire.


“Thank you Bridgestone! I am so happy that you are here tonight for Christmas. I will do my best to study well and become a doctor, as my dream is to help a lot of people. This is because my parents passed away because we did not have enough money to go to the hospital.” shared Vu Quang Thien, one of the children at the S.O.S Village.
