FPT to establish school for 1,000 Covid-19 orphans

Technology giant FPT will establish a school to raise and educate over 1,000 children whose parents have died of Covid-19.

Chairman of the Hanoi-based company Truong Gia Binh announced the decision Thursday, less than 24 hours after learning about the Covid-19 orphanage figures.

Binh said he himself had to live far away from his parents starting from the age of eight during wartime.
