The programme aims to mobilise organisations, businesses and individuals to join hands to take care of and support the orphaned children due to the COVID-19 pandemic until the age of 18 in a sustainable way so that they can overcome difficulties and stabilise their lives soon, ensuring conditions for them to develop comprehensively and become useful people in society.
The programme will concentrate on provinces and cities that have been heavily affected by the COVID-19 epidemic and focusing on providing financial, education, health and spiritual support.
Students who lost their parents due to COVID-19 will be provided with 500,000 VND per month until they are 18 years old.
The Youth Union collaborated with FPT, a technology giant in Viet Nam, to establish schools for 6-18 year-old children whose parents died of COVID-19. The programme also calls on experts and volunteers who have experience in the field of child psychology to provide support and timely intervention for children, especially at the beginning when they are going through trauma.
