Seam The World had a meaningful and heartfelt day helping Quỹ Bác Ái Sẻ Chia Tình Thương-Hạnh Phúc-Nụ Cười” Group deliver, and give out food and clothes to more than 200 poor families that were badly affected by Damrey Storm in Tuy Hoa, Phu Yen. After a 12-hour bus journey, we arrived in the very early hours of the morning to a heavy rain that gave us a glimpse of the conditions that the families faced during Damrey Storm.
After driving to a government office building we divided the donated supplies into gift bags made up of 5kg rice, 1 (10bag box of instant noodles), and bottles of cooking oil, soy sauce and fish sauce. When we finished giving out the food supplies to the families on the local government list we drove around in (some rain) to deliver food supplies to other vulnerable families. These families included a family whose house was completely destroyed (they are staying with neighbors) and a family whose roof was destroyed this tragedy was made worse when the father of the family fell off the roof and hospitalized when he was trying to fix it.
All the families were very thankful to receive their gift bags. We hope it helps them and gives them the strength that they need to recover and rebuild their lives. The day was an emotional and powerful reminder of the good that people can achieve and the difference we can make in people’s lives when we come together with a desire to do what we can to help people. It is important to know and to remember that everyone can do something to help others and to make the world a better place. A special thanks to everyone who donated food and clothes and helped make this important event happen. We hope you’ll join us for more future events.
