On July 29, a ceremony was held in Ha Nam to give employees support packages. This is phase 5 of the project "For mother and baby - For Vietnamese stature" by For Vietnamese Stature (VSF) and Vietnam General Confederation of Labor.

Each support package includes 300,000 VND in cash plus condoms, birth control pills, and personal hygiene goods from Golden Choice and Hoa Linh Pharmaceuticals for health care and f amilyization.

This package will help workers gain access to better healthcare by providing them with financial assistance and online coaching on diet, psychology, and reproductive health  without charge.

Following the online provision of information and providing essentials for low-income workers affected by Covid that was implemented in 2021, in 2022 the project will promote activities on social networks to provide information and personal advice to employees on nutrition, reproductive health, and especially mental health in order to overcome difficulties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Besides, the project will also continue to provide basic necessities including rice and milk to 100 women who are raising children with extremely difficult circumstances.

In addition to the above activities, in 2022 the project will provide free condoms, birth control pills and personal hygiene products to 3,000 workers in Ha Nam province and Vinh Phuc province.

According to the preliminary agreed plan with the project implementation partner, the Vietnam General Confederation of Labor, the project will start operating from June 2022.

During this reporting period we have no donations from sponsors through GlobalGiving. We hope to continue to receive the companionship of sponsors in the next time so that we have more resources to implement this project.

In parallel with increasing the provision of information in the online form through articles on Facebook and the website, in the 4th quarter of 2021 we also conducted relief activities related to Covid-19.

Specifically, we have given 400 gifts of essential necessities (such as rice, milk, cooking oil, salt, instant noodles, etc. with a value of 300,000 VND/gift) to 400 workers in Binh Duong province. They are workers in factories - industrial parks but have lost their jobs temporarily or have their wages cut because factories have to close to prevent the Covid-19 epidemic. Many people, or their loved ones, are infected with Covid, even die.

About the project proposal submitted to the initiative funded by the European Union through two social organizations, RED of Vietnam and Pro NGO! of Germany, we were not accepted for sponsorship because it did not match the criteria of the Organizing Committee. However, fortunately, we continue to receive the companionship of TH Group, Hoa Linh Pharmaceutical Company, Golden Choice Company and DKT International Organization to implement the next phase of the project. We will continue to call for the companionship of other organizations and individuals for more resources.

In terms of our plans for 2022, we will ramp up our activities online and will focus on supporting women and children affected by Covid-19. In addition, we will keep face-to-face operations limited and include only assisting workers in accessing health care and personal hygiene products.

Regarding contributions through GlobalGiving, during the period we received a total of 2 donations from 2 donors with a total value of 50 USD. We expect to continue to receive the companionship of sponsors in the near future.

Due to the impact of the 4th outbreak of COVID-19 in Vietnam caused by the Delta mutation, the project activities scheduled to be implemented in Bac Giang province could not take place.

In order to adapt to the new situation to avoid the spread of Corona virus, we have converted project activities to online form. Specifically, we have written knowledge advice articles and posted them on our fanpage and website so that anyone anywhere can access the information. In particular, regarding COVID-19, we have enhanced relevant information such as the necessity of vaccination against COVID-19 for pregnant and lactating women, COVID-19 vaccine does not affect affect fertility, etc.

Regarding the plan for 2022, in order to better adapt to the new conditions to prevent the COVID-19 epidemic, we have just developed a project proposal to carry out activities in the form of completely online. This proposal has been submitted to an EU-funded initiative through two social organiztions, RED (Vietnam) and Pro NGO! (Germany). It is the initiative "Enhancing CSOs' Contribution to Governance and Development Process in Vietnam" (Win-Win For Vietnam - A cooperation mechanism between business sector and civil society organisations for corporate social responsibility and sustainable development goals in Vietnam"). We very much hope this project proposal will be approved for funding this November so that we can realize our goal.

Besides, we also hope to continue to receive the support of individual donors through GlobalGiving so that we have more resources to implement the project. We are very grateful that during the reporting period we received 3 grants from individual donors totaling 130 USD.

Although all work has been prepared for Phase 5 of the project can be implemented in early March in either Bac Ninh or Bac Giang provinces, however, due to the re-emergence of the Covid-19 epidemic, especially in the industrial zones of these two provinces, the project had to delay the restart date. 

In Phase 5, the project continues to have the support of institutional sponsors such as DKT International, Golden Choice Company, Hoa Linh Pharmaceutical Company and TH Group. In addition, for the first time, the Dalat Milk brand has officially accompanied the project. 

According to the plan agreed by For Vietnamese Stature Foundation with donors, in addition to activities like the previous phase, Phase 5 will have more communication activities for junior high school pupils (who are children of employees) on personal hygiene, and re-launching mobile reproductive health examination and counseling after a one-year pause. 

Regarding fundraising for the project through GlobalGiving, during this reporting period we received 5 donations totaling $458.09 from individuals. We hope that the Covid-19 epidemic will soon be under control so that we can soon launch the project activities to be able to disburse the funds of the donors.
