Helping those who need it the most
Published/Last edited or updated: 24th September, 2016
These guides were struck by the severe poverty of a number of Hoi An residents, void of any sustainable means or support to survive. Over a period of time the guides formed Ong Vang, encouraging local kids to get involved visiting families in their area in the hope of building a local support group to reach out to the people who need help the most.
Ong Vang is a local charity now 400 youth strong. They run soup kitchens, give rice to the elderly and poor, provide nutritious, hot meals to schools and have built strong community support networks for more than 50 families in dire need of help. They’ve helped rebuild homes and schools after typhoons and flooding, delivered food packages and helped with medical expenses. Donations go straight in the pot to provide help to those who urgently need it.
After years of camping in her back garden in the New Forest, Caroline Mills’ parents went wild and jetted her off to Morocco where her dream of becoming a traveling belly dancer was born.
