YOUR DONATION HELPS TO CHANGE LIVES!
According to the a report in 2009, 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. 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.
This is why 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 PWD/AOS.
