YOUR DONATION HELPS TO CHANGE LIVES!
According to the 2009 census, there are 6 million people with disabilities around the country who feel pain every day. Today in Viet Nam, an estimated more than six million persons or nearly 8% of the population live with disabilities (PWD). Of those, a sizable number are Agent Orange survivors (AOS) and their offsprings. During the war, fifty years ago, Viet Nam was sprayed with the toxic herbicide called Agent Orange. As a result, a notable number of children continue to be born today with congenital diseases and their families are at a loss how to deal with their conditions.
PWD/AOS are entitled to opportunities to exercise their human rights, among which is taking part in physical activities.
This is how Orange Initiative (OI) emerged to incorporate into the annual Ho Chi Minh City-based international marathon a run in which PWD/AOS can participate.
The marathon is also an opportunity to encourage event runners to support and donate to help PWD/AOS.
