In November 2019 One Heart for Healing (OHH) launched “LOVE BAC GIANG”. With the support of local government agencies LOVE BAC GIANG carried out its first outreach in Son Dong district. Since then, OHH has been spread the idea of LOVE BAC GIANG amongst local partners.
The recent outbreak of COVID-19 in Bac Giang has caused damage to health and economic sectors. This is a great opportunity for OHH and the local community to demonstrate love for the city of Bac Giang.
The Need –
The whole industrial zone in Viet Yen is under quarantine. There are thousands of workers there who need support about food and water.
The medical professionals from different offices of Bac Giang have been working exhaustively in the affected areas already quarantined. Those professionals need PPE such as hazmat suits, masks, hand sanitizer, alcohol 70%, disposable gloves.
On May 19, 2021, OHH received 40 million VND worth of medical supplies from CityPartners. Special thanks to Mrs. Huong who contacted OHH in order to express the interest of CityPartners to extend help for the people in Bac Giang.
Bac Giang Secondary Medical School is the partner of OHH in the LOVE BAC GIANG campaign, and the first receiver of the donations. The medical school oversees the donation screening and distribution to the most affected areas by the COVID-19 in Bac Giang. The leaders of Bac Giang Secondary Medical School and OHH would like to express their gratitude for all the support received from HIF and City Partners.
HIFers can take part in LOVE BAC GIANG by donating food: instant noodles, milk, water bottle; or medical supplies: alcohol 70%, hand sanitizer, mask, disposable gloves, hazmat suits.
