Kien Tuong Schools
September 2016 This Mid-Autumn, our Foundation collaborated with a local charity in Vietnam, DDUM, to help over 1000 children at 3 schools in Kien Tuong district-Long An province(4 hours drive from Saigon, near the border with Cambodia) celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival: Tuyen Thanh Elementary school( 541 students), Thanh Tri Elementary school(311 students) and Anh Xuan kindergarten school( 166 students). In addition to delivering gifts such as moon cakes/lanterns/snack treats/milk/toothbrushes, Hoang and the DDUM team helped deliver our foundation’s contribution of 1000 children story books for the elementary school libraries, 4200 notebooks, 1824 pens,350 boxes of crayon and colouring books, 50 pencil case kits for games prize activities, and 50 large cases of milk drink cartons. There are no street lights at night in the remote area of Thanh Tri, and so the team used lanterns and flashlights while entertaining the children into the night. The children and the adults in this community all had a great time and a great celebration of early Mid-Autumn festival/ Tết Trung Thu.
