More Than 530 Million VND Raised To Support The People Of Central Vietnam
To provide the emergency response necessary for people in Central Vietnam affected by the historic floods and storms, VinaCapital Foundation has organized the “Our Hearts To Central Vietnam” campaign which have raised more than 530,000,000 VND after 6 days. Particularly, the fundraising concert at Hard Rock Cafe HCMC raised nearly 300,000,000 VND.
At the moment, all hearts and minds are focused on Central Vietnam where 8 provinces stretching from Nghe An to Quang Ngai have struggled with constant typhoon storms and floods for more than 14 days. These monsoon rains have caused the worst flood levels in the past 100 years, pushing people in the provinces from Ha Tinh to Quang Nam to barely survive with no food or clean water, damaged houses, crops lost, animals drowned and extremely dangerous living conditions. Hundreds of thousands of people are desperately stuck in the rising flood and in urgent need of support to overcome the current difficulties.
In Stage I, the funds raised will be used to equip emergency relief packages, tentatively including basic necessities and medicines, water, foods, milk for children, and hygiene products for children and women, to be promptly delivered to the people of 4 provinces of Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, and Thua Thien Hue. The VinaCapital Foundation team that is on the ground there now will work directly with our local partners in the provinces to ensure that the supports reaches the people in most need quickly.
The VinaCapital Foundation in Stage II will continue to call on donors to join hands to support the people in Central Vietnam to overcome the consequences of the disasters by contributing to the renovation and rebuilding of schools, hospitals, and commune medical facilities.
