Ha Thi Hong Thanh lives in one of the poorest provinces in Northern Vietnam where communities are spread through the remote mountainous areas. Thanh, her grandparents and brother shelter in a small house with a zinc roof, stone walls and cemented floor. The family is often in lack of food for several months per year. Her parents are working far from home with very meager incomes. Drinking, washing and cooking water is collected from a nearby well which is unhealthy from pollution while appropriate healthcare is hardly accessible in the community. Though life is hard for Thanh, she appears to be a friendly child. She loves singing and playing with toys very much. Thanh enjoys going to school each weekday. Her favorite subjects are Math, Vietnamese and Dictation. She often helps her family look after the younger sibling besides school time. Thanh dreams of becoming a teacher in the future. With your sponsorship, children like Thanh will receive support in accessing education, health, clean water and nutritional care.
It’s a great way to create a bond between someone who’s
special to you and a child who will welcome his or her friendship and support.
