At Hue Help we believe fundraising should be a fun and rewarding experience. As a result, we are committed to providing as much support to our fundraisers as possible. Check out our fundraising ideas on the menu above to see how you can get involved in fundraising for Hue Help today!
Many of our fundraisers choose to set up a page through JustGiving and link it to Hue Help’s page so that all donations are easily transferred to us. This is a great website to set your goal, track your progress, and keep donors updated on your activity or event.
Why does Hue Help need your support?
Hue Help works in central Vietnam to improve the health, education and future prospects of disadvantaged children. We do not receive any financial support from the government and rely completely on the generous donations from our friends, partners, occasional grants, and fundraising activities. We are a small team with minimal resources but we manage to achieve a lot thanks to our supporters.
The current situation in Vietnam
In recent years, Vietnam has made great progress with their economic growth reaching 5.32% in 2009. However as a developing country Vietnam still needs help from the international community.
– Vietnam is one of the countries in the world which has been most affected by climate change. This causes extensive and disastrous flooding every year with the poor and the vulnerable most seriously affected.
– The Vietnamese government is working to achieve the eight goals of the Millennium program to improve social and economic conditions by 2015. However the world economic crisis has hindered such development. Due to this, non-governmental organizations play a key role in ensuring that progress continues to be made.
As a small organization Hue Help is ideally placed to support the development of local projects, working towards the Millennium goals and specializing in swimming and water safety to help relieve the problems of flooding.
