Support the Poor School Children in Vietnam
There are many school
children in Vietnam that came from poor families. They
are often malnutrition and do not have enough clothes to wear.
In addition, some children cannot even attend school
they have to work as street vendors to help support their families.
These school children are very eager to go to
school, but they need a lot of help and support. With
your monetary contribution, we would be able to provide to
these needed school children scholarships, books, and
clothing to help improve their living condition. The
children would be able to focus in school and better their
learning skills to build a bright future for themselves.
Provide Health Care for the Poor in Vietnam
Majority of people in Vietnam, especially people in the rural
areas, are very poor and do not have any health care.
There are no regular health care check ups; Therefore, minor health
conditions are often become life threatening. They
also lack of many basic medicines. There are
qualified and volunteered Vietnamese doctors and nurses
available to perform these basic health care check ups, but
they lack money and means to get to these rural areas.
With your support, we can provide assistance to these
volunteered Vietnamese doctors and nurses to reach much
needed sick and poor people to provide basic health care
needs and much needed medicines to cure common problems
before they become fatal.
