Why does Hue Help needs your support?
Hue Help works in central Vietnam to improve the health, education and future prospects of disadvantaged children. Working through local partners we provide mobile health care, support a home for children, run swimming training for children in flood zones and operate an international volunteer programme. We believe that local people should be at the heart of our programmes, promoting sustainability and ensuring that the people we work with are able to maintain their customs, culture and traditions.
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.
