Danish Firm Donated $10,000 to Help Homeless Children in Vietnam

Danish company ScanCom International A/S donated $10,000 on October 11, 2007 to two shelters in Vietnam run by the HCM City Children’s Welfare Foundation for street children.
The Little Rose Warm Shelter provides care and education to disadvantaged girls aged 12 to 16 who would otherwise be at risk of falling victim to traffickers while The Green Bamboo Warm Shelter helps street boys of 10 to 16 re-integrate into their families and society.
The member of the Denmark-Viet Nam Association (DVA), Majken Soerensen, said Little Rose and Green Bamboo are the primary beneficiaries of DVA’s help and that they each needed about $25,000 a year in a speech which was held on behalf of Ole Riis who is the project coordinator for Ho Chi Minh City Child Welfare Foundation and the
new national collection “Vietnam’s Children”.

The city foundation said since 2005 the Danish embassy in Ha Noi and DVA had donated VND724.5 million ($45,000) to Green Bamboo and VND1,7 billion ($106,000) to Little Rose.
