As end of October, 2020, all SCB’s employees have donated nearly VND1.5 billion to support families that suffered from floods in central Vietnam. Such fund was given directly to people in flood-damaged areas in Ha Tinh, Nghe An, Quang Nam, Quang Ngai, Quang Binh and Quang Tri, from November 2nd to November 18th, 2020.
