HCMC – The Saigon Times Foundation, a non-profit organization set up by the Saigon Times Group and its partners in February 2002 to support education and training in Vietnam, is seeking donations to provide scholarships to children in flood-hit areas and serve as a bridge bringing support from donors to students unable to return to school due to financial hardships caused by natural disasters.

The central and north central provinces of Thua Thien-Hue, Quang Tri and Quang Binh have been hit hard by storms and floods in recent times. More than 120 people in the region have been killed or gone missing. Numerous schools have been destroyed and more than 1.2 million students have been out of school. Many of them would not be able to return to school due to financial hardships.

All donations as well as scholarship handover programs will be updated in time on the Saigon Times Group’s publications.

For further information, contact Hong Nhi at (0283) 8225572-ext.70 or 0378713615 or via email hongnhi@thesaigontimes.vn.

Donations can be sent to the Saigon Times Foundation’s bank account No. 1600104575530001 at the Saigon Joint Stock Commercial Bank – Nguyen Cong Tru branch.

Transfer content: name, organization/office + phone number + support for children affected by storms and floods.
