    5 YEARS OF COMMUNITY SUPPORT

     

     

    THE FORMER CHARITY KITCHEN (2000s)



    THE NEWLY BUILT CHARITY KITCHEN AT CAI LẬY HOSPITAL IN MEKONG DELTA (2016)



    The Charity Kitchen was founded in 2000 by Volunteer 19/5 (Tổ Từ Thiện 19/5) to assist the needy patients at Cai Lậy Hospital and our See Vietnam Foundation has supported it since 2012. Our community project Charity Kitchen got funded approximately 327 USD when it was first publicized in 2013. It brought the Charity Kitchen 400 kilos of rice & 190 kilos of sugar.

    This community project in 2014  exceeded our own expectations.The number of sponsors doubled which, in turn, tripled the amounts raised. We raised 951 USD from a total of 37 generous donors. With this budget, we brought the Charity Kitchen 1,550 kilos of rice, 200 kilos of sugar, 25 kilos of MSG, 100 bags of rice husk for burning. These amounts can help to maintain the charity kitchen for more than a month. 


    In 2015, we raised 700 USD from a total of 27 generous donors. Due to the dramatic decrease in the amount of sponsors (37 in 2014 to 27 in 2015), this year our rice supply is not as much as the one in the previous year (951 USD). However, this can’t stop us from being proud of our great contribution for the Charity Kitchen: 1000 kilos of rice + 200 kilos of sugar + 112 litters of cooking oil + 8 kilos of pepper. This wonderful supply from our project can help to maintain the Charity Kitchen for 3 weeks, offering tasty meals to keep the needy comfortable.


    Charity Kitchen 2016  reached the impressive milestone of our 5th year of community service. We funded 774 USD, 74USD more than that of the previous year, although the number of donors fell significantly, from 27 to 21 donors between 2015 & 2016. This year, we not only bought the Charity Kitchen at Cai Lậy Hospital 720KG OF RICE & 200KG OF SUGAR, but also 600KG OF RICE for street children at Hòa Hảo Literacy & Soup Kitchen Program in Sài Gòn.
