Hanoi (VNA) –
Cargill Cares Council, Cargill Incorporated’s international charity fund raiser, has mobilized nearly 6 billion VND (264,300 USD) in June to implement community projects in Vietnam.

Since its establishment in 1997, the employee-led council has raised over 120 billion VND (5.2 million USD) in Vietnam to build 87 schools in 47 cities and provinces nationwide.

It has also carried out other community projects such as digging wells to supply clean water in the country’s poor rural areas.

Cargill recently built two schools in central Quang Tri and northern Nam Dinh provinces and plans to build another in Quang Tri in August.

Stoney Su, chief representative of Cargill Vietnam, said the school building programme is providing quality education for about 14,000 students a year.
