The “One heart – One world” programme was organised by the Association for the Support of Vietnamese Handicapped and Orphans (ASVHO) and the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs.
The annual event is to raise money for activities to improve quality of life for disabled people and orphans.
Established in April 1992, the ASVHO aims to protect the legitimate rights and interests of disabled people and orphans.
It has raised more than VND2.5 trillion (US$110.3 million) and received VND268.2 billion (US$11.8 million) from the State budget to assist the disabled and poor with orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation, cataract surgery, vocational training, and wheelchairs and bicycles.
The association has supported some 9.8 million handicapped people and orphans across the country.VNA
