At the end of 2012, Hue Children’s Shelter had received six more children. They are: Quan (11 months old); Xu (5 years); Kim Anh (15 years); Pho (16 years); Tony (6 years) and Thinh (14 years). They are all from different districts of Thua Thien Hue province such as Quang Dien, Huong Thuy, and Hue city. These new children have all lost parents to traffic accidents, floods and illness. We are now happy to see them enrolling in local schools and making friends with the other kids in the shelter.
We are now in the process of working with DOLISA and Hue Children’s Shelter to finalise the MOU for our sponsorship for this year. In the renewed MOU we are still committed to supporting the children with food, education (including books, notebooks, uniforms, school fees, extra classes and tutorial classes), clothes, personal items (soap, shampoo, pillow, blanket), recreational activities such as summer trips, creative classes, birthday parties, as well as providing salary and social insurance for two housemothers.
Through our support, we believe that the children will achieve higher education which will give them the opportunity to be independent in the future.
