Ho Chi Minh City, March 30, 2018 – Chubb Life Insurance Vietnam Company Ltd. (Chubb Life) today announced the opening of Duy Ninh Kindergarten at Duy Ninh commune, Quang Ninh district, Quang Binh province. This is the company’s seventh school building project, and the second funded by the Chubb Charitable Foundation – International, which provided VND 2.5 billion (approximately US$112,500), representing about half of the total project cost.
