Ministry striking for fair education and poverty reduction

A Memorandum of Understanding for the 2020-2023 has been signed between the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) and the International WeLoveU Foundation period via a video conference to reach poverty reduction and fair education goals.

Under the MoU, the two sides will offer livelihood and infrastructure support as well as enhance education quality for disadvantaged and vulnerable families. The foundation will also launch blood donation and environment protection campaigns.

They will also improve housing environment and offer support to those with meritorious service to the nation, the elderly and heroic Vietnamese mothers.

As a non-governmental organisation approved for association with the United Nations, WeLoveU Foundation partners with the UN and countries to fulfill the UN Sustainable Development Goals and social goals of the world.

It has been working in various areas such as emergency relief, blood donation, clean water and sanitation, health and well-being.

Speaking at the event, head of the MoLISA’s Department of International Cooperation Nguyen Manh Cuong said though two COVID-19 outbreaks in March and August were under control, their impact on local lives, especially workers, the elderly, the poor and vulnerable, are not small.

The Vietnamese Government issued Resolution No.42/NQ-CP on measures to support those hit by the pandemic and Decision No.15/QD-TTg on the implementation of support policy for them, including the unprecedented social welfare package worth over 62 trillion VND (2.69 million USD) benefiting about 20 million people.

Furthmore, with the recent storms ravaged the central region, it will push a large number of families into financial and health difficulties that require a special support.

For her part, Chairwoman of the foundation Zahng Gil Jah wished that both sides will make further dedication and contributions to a better life of humans.
