The conference was jointly held by the two organisations to review their project on emergency response to reduce COVID-19 impacts in Vietnam’s southern provinces.
According to Pham Dinh Nghinh, Vice Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City Child Welfare Association, the Association contributed more than 6.3 billion VND and the remainder came from Save the Children.
Apart from the aid packages, project workers also gave advice and conducted communication work, publishing and delivering documents on child protection in emergency cases, he added.
Nguyen Vu Trong Binh from Save the Children suggested targeted districts and wards continue with support programmes after the project concludes, saying the organisation will call for donors in other programmes and projects in support of disadvantaged children and families in the city.
