“Bridge” of affection
Previously, Nguyen Van Dong in Am village, Tam Hiep commune was the major labour in his family. Last year, he got serious accident and suffered from traumatic brain injury, making the family live in miserable condition.

Knowing about the case, the Love Sharing Club under Yen The Red Cross Society (RCS) actively provided information and called for the donation from the kind hearted people and businesses to support them.
Half of month later, the club mobilized 46 million VND (nearly 2,000 USD) from the community to support Dong in treatment process. Dong shared his family could rely on no one without the timely support from the society and the district RCS.
Playing the “bridging” role in humanitarian task, last year, the district RCS called for the philanthropists in and outside the province to present 43 million VND to Lu Van Don in Rung Dai hamlet, Tam Tien commune who has been paralyzed for years.
Also, the district RCS supported family of Bui Van Thuong in Mac village, Phon Xuong town with 84 million VND (3,600 USD) to cure his 8 year old son suffering from brain cancer.
According to the Chairwoman of the district RCS Ngo Thi Phuc, implementing the instruction from the district Party and Authority, since last year, the RCS has coordinated with many organization and charity groups in and outside the province to call for the donations of nearly 2 billion VND (85,700 USD) from the companies, organization and individuals to help hundreds of families living in special difficult circumstance such as Doan Thi Yen in Chua village, Tan Hiep commune; Nguyen Hoang long in Rung Chieng village, Tien Thang commune...
Apart from cash support, the district RCS has actively collaborated with several medical facilities to organize free health examination and medicine supply, establish the location to deliver charity gifts to the poor in the communes of Dong Son, Dong Huu, Dong Ky, Hong Ky...
Typically, the “humanitarian porridge” is regularly maintained at the district Medical Center by the district RCS.
Supporting proper addresses
According to Vice Chairman of the district People’s Committee Than Minh Sam, the district now has nearly 2,200 poor households. Defining that the social welfare is one of the key political tasks in the area, Yen The district has recently instructed the competent agencies to call for the active donation from their officers, staff and labourers to support the poor.
Particularly, the district authority assigned the district RCS as the major representative to contact to the kind-hearted people as well as the charity groups in and outside the province to appeal for the support.
To ease the appealing task, last year the district RCS established two new clubs of Yen The Charity and Love Sharing, each has dozens of members to take regular contact to call for the donation from the philanthropists in and outside the province to help the special difficult cases in the district.
Also, they grasp the cases’ demand to have specific orientation to give suitable support to each person. The priority is taken to help the victims of natural disasters, poor people with disabilities, people living in remote areas so that they can overcome the challenge in life.
Yen The’s experience proved that the appealing method should be diverse to be more effective so as to mobilize more people to join hands in charity work such as direct persuasion, calling via social networks (facebook, zalo...) with attached images and videos to accurately provide information about the needy cases.
