Many in Vietnam are struggling right now, even more so those in the community who cannot meet ends-meet due to COVID-19, restrictions to movement and the current lockdown.
If you want to support in any way, please look at the suggested list below – we know that any contribution small or big will make an impact.
Note that Sustainable Vietnam has received these suggestions from ‘colleagues’ in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and is not endorsing any specific organisation but hope that you will find an organisation that aligns with the impact you want to have during these difficult times.
If you would like to add to this list, we are happy to continually update it. Do send your information to us.
