Living Condition Improvement Project - Vietnam
Location: The Ha Nam Orphanage in Ha Nam Province and the Dong Da Friendship Orphanage in Hanoi
Beneficiaries: 102 children who are residents of the orphanages
summer in Vietnam is coming in a few months, bringing with it average
temperatures of 102 to 108 degrees and frequent power outages. For the
children living in two of the orphanages (which we help to support
through our child sponsorship program) this means they are often left
without relief. When the power goes out, they don’t have water to
shower, electricity to study, or fans to make the heat bearable. In the
past, even when the electricity worked, a lack of fans has meant that in
the extreme heat some children suffered from dehydration, hyperthermia,
heat stress, exhaustion, and fainting.
of the children in these orphanages are disabled, some have HIV … and
all of them are disadvantaged. The administration and staff of the
orphanage do all that they can to provide a safe, nurturing, and healthy
home for the children but with extremely limited financial support from
the government, their resources are often stretched thin.
project would enable the purchase of two generators (which would
provide back-up electricity when the power goes out) and 20 electric
fans to provide relief from the extreme heat.
