Roughly VND945 billion (US$40.8 million) was raised for the charity programme “Joining hands for the poor" in 2018 by 261 kind-hearted businesses, units and individuals nationwide.

By the end of July this year, the Fund for the Poor has raised more than VND43.8 billion (US$1.9 million).

This was announced at a meeting held in Hanoi on August 7 to prepare for the organisation of the 2019 programme, which is scheduled for October 17 in response to Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s call to leave nobody behind.

Chairman of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee Tran Thanh Man hands over the supported amount to the poor.

He asked the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee to closely coordinate with the Steering Committee for the National Target Programme to mobilise more resources and effectively utilise the Fund for the Poor.

He suggested using funds from the 2019 programme to construct houses for the poor, particularly for households with family members who have made contributions to the country.

Donations to the Fund should also be used to provide a warm and happy Tet (Lunar New Year festival) for the poor, and present scholarships for disadvantaged students, he added.
