As reported, hundreds of children in Binh Duong have lost their family members due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Understanding the situation, many individuals and organizations across the province have conducted practical activities to help orphaned children overcome losses and stabilize their lives soon.

In particular, the Women’s Union Organization and the Women Entrepreneurs of Binh Duong province signed a program to give assistance to and take care of the orphaned children.

Accordingly, 38 businesswomen committed to giving financial support, worth VND 1 million per child per month, to 105 children from 1 to 16 years old. The total cost of the program is expected to be more than VND 1.2 billion.
