Project looks to support 2,600 persons with heavy disabilities

The ‘Hold My Hands II’ project to improve the quality of those with heavy disabilities has been launched at the budget of 2 million USD sponsored by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

It will be carried out in the three provinces of Binh Dinh, Quang Nam and Kon Tum in Vietnam’s central region in the 2022-24 period, aiming to develop a network of caregivers and volunteers providing home care for about 2,600 people with disabilities in the localities, including 2,330 in Binh Dinh and 150 in Quang Nam.

In addition, about 200 persons with disabilities will receive assistive tools and home repairs to improve the quality of the care and promote independent living.

To develop a sustainable system offering care for those persons, the project will collaborate with the Vietnam Nurses Association to standardise the training programme for caregivers, and with public and private care centres on a pilot model on providing the services.

The project offered home care services for 630 beneficiaries across 17 communes of Binh Dinh and Quang Nam provinces, and rehabilitation for nearly 3,500 others in its first phase launched in 2018-21.

It also trained more than 1,000 caregivers and collaborators and helped 10 hospitals and health clinics, and three special education schools in Binh Dinh have gained abilities to provide rehabilitation services.
