Vietnam has come a long way from its earlier history of suffering, but there are still parts of the country which battle hardship.The wider Quang Nam province is ranked as one of the most impoverished areas in Vietnam. Many families here are barely surviving on less than US$1 dollar a day per person. We are partnering with NGOs there to help. As one puts it:

“The growth Vietnam has had over the past ten years has been tremendous and we at Children’s Hope In Action (CHIA) support children, their families and their communities to continue this growth to build better futures for everyone.”

CHIA runs extensive services providing medical care, support for those with disabilities, educational opportunities, along with water, sanitation and housing.

This year, they received two superb corporate donations through Global Hand. 8,000 women’s sweaters which they distributed to people in the mountainous north (see the main photo below), where winter can be cold, and 2,245 pairs of magnificent, household name shoes (anonymity requested by both donors) in the villages too. CHIA, as their name suggests, are people in action.
