Quang Tri (January 28, 2022) — Thanks to funding of Irish Aid through Irish Embassy in Vietnam, this week Project RENEW have delivered practical gifts to the families of disabled persons in Quang Tri who are affected by Covid-19.
A total of 226 disabled families living in Huong Hoa, Cam Lo, Gio Linh, Vinh Linh, Dong Ha, Trieu Phong and Quang Tri Town have received household appliances and essentials including food cabinets, electric cookers, gas stoves, water filters, electric fans, and rice.
57-year-old Le Thi Men, blind at birth, who lives with her blind mother in Luong Dien Village of Hai Son Commune feels overwhelmed with happiness when receiving the gift from RENEW as the Lunar New Year is just a few days left. The gifts provided to these disabled families are worth nearly 845 million VND.
Our thanks to the Government of Ireland for enabling RENEW to carry out this meaningful endeavor, helping disabled families have a warm and sufficient New Year festival.
Project RENEW was established in 2001 as a joint effort between the government of Quang Tri Province and interested INGOs to “restore the environment and neutralize the effects of the war”. RENEW is the only comprehensive mine action organization in Vietnam that integrates survey and clearance, risk education, and victim assistance into a coordinated program of action.
