2.            Activities in 2014:

 

While visiting Vietnam in late 2014, not only did we visit the school for children

in Mui Ne, Phan Thiet, but we also had the opportunity to visit three remote places

at  Đồng Nai, Lm Đồng and Long An provincesThe people here are very poor,

have  harsh living conditions and limited access to transportation and social interaction.

There are many homeless adults and children alike.

 

We were able to contact two non-profit organizations in Saigon, KIAFC and students

from The Vietnam International University, who helped us to buy, package and transfer gifts

from Saigon to the people at these remote places. 

 

Besides helping students at the school for children this year at Mũi N, Phan Thiết,

Hope For Kids also provided gifts to:

 

- 30 families and 75 poor students at M Đ Commune, Vĩnh Cửu District,

Đồng Nai Province.

- Students at L Lợi Elementary school, Lộc Tn Commune, Bảo Lm District,

Lm Đồng Province. 

- Poor children at An Ninh Ty Commune,  Đức Ha District, Long An Province. 

 

With the $2,380 US dollars contributed in 2014, we bought presents and distributed

as follows:

 

A. $880 US dollars for the students at Mũi N School:

            - $380 US dollars to buy gifts for 55 children, and to give cash to 2 teachers

On behalf of all children receiving gifts in Vietnam, we would like to thank you

for your generous contributions to Hope For Kids organization.  With your help,

we were able to provide hopes and joys to disadvantaged children in time for

Tết Festival.

 

We hope your kindness will continue on so that the children will once again be able

to receive gifts for next year's Tết Festival.
