Following TỪ HÒA-CICG' s charity appeal dated 8th November, 2017, tens of supporters from Australia, the USA and Vietnam have donated 112,500,000 VNDs (6600 AUDs including 1000 USDs), which was divided into 260 gifts. Each includes a five kilogram bag of rice, a box of 30 instant noodle sachets, a bottle of cooking oil, a bottle of fishsauce, two cans of condensed milk, and a cash envelope of 200,000 VNDs. These gifts were given by TỪ HÒA-CICG volunteers to 260 households at Dai Lanh commune and Dai Hung commune, Dai Loc rural district, Quang Nam province on 19 November and 26 November 2017 respectively. These families were recognized as the worse-damaged households in the severely-devastated areas, affected by several days of torrential rains on end following Typhoon Damrey on 4th November, 2017. Their sufferings largely brought about by their poor lives were surely doubled due to the torrential rains, damaging their homes and crops.
It goes without saying your generosity promptly shown through your cash donations would help relieve their sufferings and anxiety to some extent.
To be grateful for all the participants' significant contributions, countless thanks is all I would like to say to the donors for their loving-kindess and to the volunteers for their wholehearted engagement in bringing these gifts to the victims in need.
