Student Scholarship Award Program – Soc Trang, Vietnam (completed)
Place: My Tu & My Xuyen Districts, Soc Trang Province | Time: 11 Dec 2014 | Local authority partner: Soc Trang Department of Labor, Invalids & Social Affairs – Soc Trang Children’s Fund
Achievements: 31 scholarships worth VND25,000,000 in total were offered. Aid for Kids would like to say thank-you to Nancy Schultz and friends and online donors for your donation to help needy children in the remote area keep going to school.
By November 2014, Aid for Kids have raised $615 online to sponsor surgery for a goiter boy, Trang Danh Tieng, in My Xuyen, Soc Trang. Anyway, a donor directly contacted the boy’s family and helped the boy get a surgery, so we are very pleased to announce that the boy has recently received desperately needed and urgently needed surgery to correct his enlarged goiter condition. Therefore, after sending mails asking for donors’ consent on using the donation for educational cause, we has paid a visit and offered a scholarship of $50 to the boy, the remaining donation is then contributed to scholarships for other 30 disadvantaged students in the area.
