Under the programme, the Huong Duong Orphanage in the Mekong Delta province of Hau Giang and the Dong Tam Social Sponsorship Centre in the southern province of Binh Duong will each obtain a financial aid package of over 512 million VND (22,500 USD).

Huong Duong and Dong Tam received funds for the second and third time, respectively.

The money will be used to improve meals for children and ensure food hygiene and safety during processing. It will also be used to support sporting and cultural activities such as martial arts classes and libraries.
