Taiwanese organisation donates to poor children in Quang Binh


The Zhi Shan Foundation from Taiwan (China) has recently provided an aid package worth 2.6 billion VND (120,000 USD) to the central province of Quang Binh to support poor and disadvantaged children in the province.

According to the provincial People’s Committee, the province will allocate the funding to scholarships and free orthopaedic surgeries. Libraries will also be built in eight local schools.

The People’s Committee has asked relevant agencies to determine the details of the scholarships, orthopaedic surgeries and assistance to school education to ensure the activities practically support the lives of a large number of disadvantaged and disabled children.

Established in 1995, Zhi Shan Foundation is one of Taiwan’s most successful non-governmental organizations engaged in long term humanitarian international aid and development work.

The Foundation has thus far carried out a number of programmes for children in the central region of Vietnam.-VNA
