FINANCIAL AID DISTRIBUTED TO REPLANT CROPS

Lifestart Foundation is extremely happy to have been able to help many of the families impacted by the devastating floods and typhoon in Central Vietnam last October and November, thanks to the donations we received from generous donors.

In this round, families were provided with aid to replant their crops. The historic floods and typhoon have wiped out their crops, one of the main sources of food for their families. These families were all very grateful for the donations from the donors which have helped them to start over and we are happy to report that they have now started to recover from the damage thanks to your help.

The below photos are of Mr. Nguyen Chi Thanh’s family and Ms. Nguyen Thi Phuoc’s family. You can see the images of devastation and then the regeneration after funds were provided.

Once again, we would like to express our sincere and profound attitude to the amazing donors, Vietnamese supporters living abroad, and Ho Chi Minh City ex-pat community who have made this campaign possible and so successful.

DOCTOR OF THE FUTURE
CONGRATULATIONS Loc from all of the Lifestart Foundation team, we couldn't be more proud of your achievements.

Loc has held a full Lifestart Foundation Education Scholarship since grade 9. He has recently completed year 12 and has been accepted into one of the most prestigious universities in Vietnam - Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy to study General Medicine, achieving his long-held and cherished dream to become a doctor. He will be the first in his family to attend university.

Loc will join the current group of 35 outstanding Lifestart Foundation Medical Education Scholarship students at Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy. This cohort includes 20 who are studying General Medicine and 15 Master of Nursing Lifestart Foundation Education scholarship recipients.

At the end of Year 12, Loc achieved a total of 27.7 out of a possible 30 in which he received 9.2 in Maths, 9.0 in Chemistry, and 9.25 in Biology, plus a 0.25 bonus mark.

Loc is a brilliant and dynamic young man. During his last three consecutive years at Le Thanh Tong High School for Gifted Students, Loc achieved the title of an excellent student. During the time revising for the most important exam of a student’s life – the National High School Graduation Exam, Loc spent an average of 9-10 hours per day on self-study which was in addition to his class time. He also attended many extracurricular activities held by the youth union in his school.

As with all of our scholarship students, despite enormous odds stacked against them they continue to inspire us with their accomplishments and determination.

Loc comes from a family that has experienced a lot of sadness in the past. Loc is a twin and his twin brother suffers from epilepsy. His dad passed away when he was 2 years old and his mum remarried when he was 8 years old. Since his mum remarried she left to live with her new family and has not supported Loc or his twin brother. Fortunately for Loc and his brother they were taken in by a good-hearted and kind uncle and his wife. Loc and his twin brother have been living with their uncle’s family including Loc’s grandmother, Loc’s uncle, and auntie, and Loc’s three cousins. His grandmother is old so she stays at home and helps with taking care of the younger children. His uncle and aunt are factory workers who work very hard to support so many people in their extended family.

Loc and his brother are lucky to have been taken in by their uncle and aunt and we can see that despite being very poor, they value education and have provided as best as they can with good living and study conditions for the two boys.

Lifestart Foundation's investment in the disadvantaged youth of Central Vietnam to date is in excess of 16 Billion vnd (approx $1,00,000.00 aud).

Scholarships cover all tuition fees, books, uniforms, and the all-important extra classes. Our Year 12 Central Vietnam students need to leave home to attend University for between 4 - 6 years depending on their chosen degree, so funding for accommodation and food needs to be provided too.
Scholarships are awarded to academically gifted students from very poor families.

FLOODS AND TYPHOON MOLAVE DONATION UPDATE
AID TO REPLANT CROPS

Thanks to the donations we received from our generous sponsors, we have been able to help many families affected by a series of floods and typhoon Molave that impacted Central Vietnam in October and November of 2020.

The families that we have been able to help include students in our Lifestart Foundation education scholarship project, so they are the families that we know and also know the impact of the typhoon and floods was real and genuine. Many of whom rely on crops and livestock to support their entire family. The historic floods and typhoon have wiped out their livelihood, which meant no income for them to start over without aid.

These families were supported with financial aid to start over and rebuild their lives, and we are happy to report that they have now started to recover from the damage thanks to the enormous help from donors.

The below photos are of Mr. Nguyen Lieu’s family, who is the father of our scholarship student Tham. Mr. Lieu is a rice farmer and despite his disability he works very hard to support his family. The devastating floods and typhoon submerged all of his crops underwater and everything died. The money donated will help reduce their current burdens. They will be able to rebuild their lives and start over by regenerating crops. You can see the images of devastation and then the regeneration after funds were provided.
