During the 2017 financial year we carried out a wide range of projects. This included encouraging children to attend school, an electric wheelchair, medicines for a group of orphanages, and provisions to disadvantaged families. Free range livestock projects to raise household income were in the Central highlands, Phong Nha, Ha Tinh and a leper colony in Nghe An. As is our rule, 100% of every dollar donated went to direct assistance in Vietnam, because we have $0 admin cost.
During the 2016 financial year we paid for an orphanage library, music training equipment, tertiary study fees, medicines, a computer for a clinic doctor, surgery for an ectopic pregnancy, food, a holiday for children, orphanage farming and nutrition, home visits by youth groups and food supplies for households in a leper colony. We spent $12,450 of the funds provided by our donors. The funds were either personally administered or administered by a helper network.
During the 2015 financial year we paid for projects to encourage children to attend school, provided shoes, medicines and baby formula to orphanages. We spent $11,270 of the funds provided by our donors. The funds were either personally administered or administered by a helper network.
During the 2014 financial year we made improvements to orphanages and a community kitchen, assisted two households of nuns in tertiary study, improved water supply to a fishing village, and provided help to one indigenous village.
