Project No. 37 – International basic convictions and understanding between nations
The LO-ANH Foundation (LOAN Stiftung) has been working with the Department of Foreign Affairs in Ha Giang (DoFA) for over 5 years. This year we received a new project application from our partner. In Ha Giang Province, poverty is the highest in the country. There are still many families who live in wooden barracks or tents. Most of them also include young children who are directly exposed to this poverty. A reason for the provincial leadership and the DoFA to act against the acute housing shortage.
Following a call for donations, Ha Giang Province received over VND 225 billion for 2021 to help poor households (including many war veterans) with significant housing problems. In total 3897 new weatherproof houses were to be built by volunteers for these families. If possible, organizations like ours should get involved too.
Since our foundation is committed to i.a. international basic convictions and understanding between nations, we decided to contribute to the financing of two houses with a total amount of USD 5,221.00.
The program for the construction of all houses has now been successfully completed. In Autumn 2021, the two weatherproof houses were also handed over to the families. With this action we have given more needy people and children better living conditions.
