Quang Tri bore the brunt of six floods and two strong tropical storms in October and November. Many schools were forced to close while hundreds of public works destroyed. Thousands of houses were submerged or collapsed.

The recent storm and flood have severely flooded Gio Quang Primary school with a meter of water and seriously damaged teaching and learning equipment such as chairs, desks and desktop computers. Besides, the school had been isolated for many days which led to the difficulties in rescuing and protecting the school’s assets. Heavy floods also hindered students from attending classes for days.

With the purpose of supporting Vietnamese students in difficult conditions, Com Co Thit Ireland is calling for support to help improve the study environment for students at Gio Quang Primary school after the disaster. Project RENEW has conducted a preliminary research and assessment for damaged levels with the chosen school, hence, all the fundraising money will be transferred to Project RENEW which will provide Gio Quang Primary School with essential teaching and learning equipment.

The Fund Raising Programme will be launched at the Christmas Gathering of Vietnamese students and alumni, organized by Education in Ireland Vietnam on December 19.

Fundraising time will be from December 15 – 31.

Information about the fundraising money will be updated regularly and the reimbursement report will be released at the end of January 2021.
