Disaster Relief


Every year, disastrous hurricanes hit central Vietnam and it costs so many lives and properties. This October, it is reported that 42 people were killed, 30,000 houses were flooded, 1,598 hectares of agricultural land became useless, 60,000 students had to stay at home. People’ lives and livelihood were devastated by the event.

In the last two weeks, many people called VNHelp and expressed their willingness to help the flood victims. While many organizations quickly provided immediate relief such as food and water to the victims, VNHelp plans to provide assistance to schools in the effected areas. In most of these schools, text books were destroyed, furniture was broken, and classrooms were damaged. Kids had to stay home. Our relief trip to Ha Tinh is planned for November 3rd to November 5th. We will directly hand school supplies (notebooks, textbooks,..), sweaters, and blankets to 2,000 students. And if budget allows, we will help repair some schools. VNHelp will be glad to accept your donation and hope to help the children return to school as soon as possible. Please make check payable to VNHelp, or you can make donation online at this link. http://www.vnhelp.org/donate/. Your contribution is 100% tax-deductible.
