Da Nang (VNA) - Pop singer My Tam and three overseas Vietnamese, Thanh Ha, Elvis Phuong and Dinh Nguyen, will join a live concert to raise funds for underprivileged children with cancer at Da Nang’s Trung Vuong Theatre on January 19.

Event organiser, the Da Nang Sun Flower Foundation, said the performance was part of an annual charity programme that raises money to help poor children with cancer living in Da Nang and Quang Nam province.

It said this year it was hoped to raise 500 million VND (22,000 USD) to support five children aged between three and 13 years.

The five children are being treated at the city’s Oncology Hospital.

According to the Da Nang Association to Support Poor and Disadvantaged Women and Children, more than 28.6 million USD has been donated from foreign and domestic people to help cancer patients.-VNA
