3,800 food kits worth more than 2 billion VND for women and children in Ho Chi Minh City and Binh Duong
Along with the food kits are medical supplies (11,450 N95 masks and 1,350 personal protective equipment) for WU staff and members in the frontline anti-COVID-19 forces.
The support package is worth 2.2 billion VND, funded by the LDSC upon the Central VWU’s request. This is a timely material support and a great source of encouragement for the women and children severely affected by the pandemic, as well as WU’s staff and members engaging in COVID-19 prevention and control in the two localities.

The LDSC's assistance also helps contribute to realizing the VWU program's goal of "Millions of loving gifts for women and children in the South to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic" in the spirit of "Leaving no one behind".
Food kits presented to COVID-19 affected women and children
LDSC and VWU have a long-standing relationship. Since the early 2000s, the two organizations have regularly collaborated on various humanitarian and charity programs including wheelchairs for people with disabilities; clean water and sanitation for community, and recently food kits for COVID-19 affected women and children in Bac Giang province (June 2021). These programs have contributed to improving the living condition of many people with difficulties in Vietnam, especially women and children.
