COVID-19 crisis is a shock for every country and human being. SonTa Foundation was established amid the tension that the COVID-19 left to our so. We observed and understood that the impact of COVID-19 will not disappear after the birth of the vaccine. The severe damages on every aspect of life deepen the suffering of the vulnerable groups.
SonTa Foundation acknowledges that we can stop the worsening inequality together. We want to support people in difficult circumstances who are affected by the COVID-19 to various extents. We encourage society to be aware of the damage of COVID-19 on disadvantaged people. We support projects that offer affected people such as migrant labourers, manual labourers suitable helps to adapt to the new condition better. Regarding long-term vision, SonTa Foundation expects to provide society with sustainable solutions that could help human being improve our resilience for the next epidemics.
SonTa Foundation did cooperate with the local NGO to provide migrant labourers in Mumbai packages of meals. In Vietnam, we hosted the online competition "Initiatives for Community" which raises awareness on inequality in education, labour and healthcare. In future, we are looking for conducting sustainable projects which could help our beneficiaries to overcome the aftermath of COVID-19 themselves effectively.
WORLD DISASTERS RELIEF
Along with our concern about the pandemic, sustainable solutions to relieve world disasters are also our pursuit. The birth of SonTa Foundation was incubated in Vietnam, a country that faces numerous natural disasters a year. And this is also one of the countries likely to be most affected by climate change. Hence, SonTa Foundation team especially dedicates resources to this field.
We support projects, campaigns that help human beings to relieve the damages of increasing change of living condition. SonTa Foundation is aware of the importance of the prevention and capacity to adapt with natural disasters. Once again, we emphasise that our targeted beneficiaries are the disadvantaged groups because they are the most affected victims of disasters. Eventually, our goal is to develop projects that support vulnerable people to adapt better to disasters, hence, they can restrict the damages caused by disasters sustainably.
In Vietnam, in the historic flood in October 2020, SonTa Foundation provided the people of one of the most damaged communes in central Vietnam with necessities and financial aids. Hundreds of packages of necessities helped hundreds of households to avoid diseases during the resilience time after the flood. The financial aids were distributed to help the poorest families to restore their capacity to work.
In future, we expect to cooperate with a variety of stakeholders that share a common interest with us to create sustainable projects that could spread to maintain the stability and balance of life of people in risky areas.
