The COVID-19 pandemic has exerted negative effects on people in some ways. Many people have lost their jobs while they still have to pay their daily expenses.
Moreover, with schools closed and families losing their income due to the pandemic, children in poor areas are dropping out of school to look for jobs. Without a helping hand, these children might never return to school again.
With the main purpose of supporting needy people to overcome this tough circumstance, 200 gift packages for studious students from difficult background and 100 gift packages for vulnerable households in two districts of Cam Xuyen and Thach Ha have been distributed. The total cost is VND 90 million (USD 3.873).
