In order to reach the poor and schools in the middle region which was damaged by severe floods and storms, Ton Nam Kim divided into several groups to help and support with the total amount of nearly 1 billion VND in cash and by actual roofing.
Mrs. Nguyen Thi Bich Nhi, Chairman of Trade Union of Ton Nam Kim gave the amount of money support to Mr. Nguyen Hai Duong – Headmaster of Phong Thuy No. 2 Primary School (Quang Binh Province).
Our first destination was Ha Tinh province, which included Phan Dinh Giot Primary-Secondary School and Kindergarten in Thach Luu Commune. Mrs. Nguyen Thi Thuy, who is Principal of Phan Dinh Giot School, said that “the recent floods caused 23 classrooms which were on the first floor to be inundated more than 1 meter depth in water. About 80% of the school’s pupils have houses which are deeply flooded. Plywood furniture were severely damaged”. With the best support from Ton Nam Kim with a little hand donated to the school funds, perhaps it should be a slight extra help for the school reconstruction after the flood.
In Quang Binh, the organization gave money to support Phong Thuy No. 2 Primary School and Nguyen Chi Thanh High School located in the “flood navel” of Le Thuy area, where the 5 meter high school gate flooded close to the roof. The principal said that the tables and chairs were completely submerged, the pupils whose houses were completely flooded had just returned to school in a significant poverty.
We went to the Khe Sanh highlands – Quang Tri to support the Pa Nho school belonged to the site of the Primary No. 1 School in Khe Sanh town, Kindergarten in Gio Chau commune (Gio Linh disctrict) and 3 teachers’ families who were seriously damaged by the flood. In addition , on this volunteer journey, Ton Nam Kim came directly to visit some houses which were severely affected and difficult families in the communes of Loc Thuy, Phong Thuy (Le Thuy district) and Trung Hai commune (Gio Linh disctrict ), awarded from 5 to nearly 20 million VND per household.
Ton Nam Kim donates 4000 meters of corrugated iron sheet to support to people in flood areas in Quang Ngai province.
Another groups, Ton Nam Kim promptly donated 4000 meters of corrugated iron sheet , which worth about 400 million VND to the people in stormy areas in Quang Ngai in 2 districts Mo Duc and Nghia Hanh. Along with our trip with the total amount of 530 million VND contributed by the staff members from the call of the Company’s Trade Union Executive Committee campaign, a total of amount which Ton Nam Kim has supported the people in the middle areas of Vietnam was 930 million VND. That is the gratitude of each member of our group while seeing the people in the lurch.
