Typhoons and floods in the central provinces of Vietnam in October 2020 have threatened the lives of more than 1.5 million children. This project will support 300 extremely difficult children in these provinces to stabilize their lives after the terrible flood through providing a package of essential items including books and school supplies, clothes, blankets, personal hygiene kits, and life jacket.
Two storms that hit central Vietnam in the first two weeks of October brought six times higher than average rainfall, flooding 136,000 houses, forcing 90,000 people to evacuate their homes, and more than 100 cases so far reported dead or missing. In which, children have been affected more severely and need support to settle down. Winter in Vietnam is coming and the flood season is still long, but children don't have warm clothes and body hygiene, as well as books and school supplies.
The project provides 300 packages of essential items including books and school supplies, clothes, blankets, personal hygiene kits, and life jacket. The 300 children severely affected by the last storm and flood in the central provinces of Vietnam will receive this support package. We work closely with the local government and press to ensure the effectiveness and transparency of the project.
The project meets both the survival and development needs of children. In other words, the project has both immediate results and long-term impacts. Specifically, life jackets will help ensure children's safety during storms, personal hygiene kits help children prevent infections caused by unsanitary conditions and pollution, clothes and blankets help children keep warm and healthy, books and school supplies help children keep learning.
