For the past 5 years, the Vietnamese Women’s Museum has run a charity project named “Warm Winter” to donate food and clothes to poor women and children across Vietnam. This year the project was held in My Thanh Village in Bac Kan Province. There are 220 poor and near-poor households in this area, with the majority of them belonging to the Yao and Tay ethnic groups.
Winter coats, scarves, and boots were given to 300 pre-school and elementary school children in the hope that they can keep warm throughout the harsh winter and will not have to go to school barefoot anymore. For the occasion of the Lunar New Year, VWM also brought extra gifts for 20 poor women and 2 low-income families.
With this meaningful project, VWM hopes to bring a little joy to poor children and women so that they can celebrate the Lunar New Year happily.
