Dong Ha, Quang Tri (3 June 2024): Thanks to a generous donation from The John Younger Trust, a longtime supporter of Project RENEW, 20 members of the Dong Ha City’s Blind Association have received a major upgrade to their working and living environment.

The donation provided a spacious new kitchen, complete with all the necessary utensils, significantly improving the Association’s cooking and dining space. Additionally, three new massage beds, an air conditioner, and other essentials were provided for their acupressure and massage unit, allowing them to serve more clients and potentially increase their income.

“The assistance from Project RENEW and The John Younger Trust has empowered our members to improve the quality of our living and working environment,” said Truong Thi Ngoc, Chairperson of the Association. “We have earned more income.”

Dang Quang Toan, Victim Assistance/Disability Support Program Manager of Project RENEW, emphasized the importance of the donation in empowering the Association members. “The donation encourages the members to work together and earn income for themselves and their families,” he said. “It’s a great example of how collaboration and support can make a real difference in the lives of those facing challenges.”
