During the height of COVID-19 outburst in Ho Chi Minh City, we saw that there were help required from those who were in quarantined whether it was their house or their alley/street - unable to go out to retrieve food or does not have the finance to do so. This project was done to aid and give assistance to provide free food source to the quarantined citizens that are under hardship. We were able to provide assistance to orphanages and homeless shelters, under privileged rentals and under privileged streets.
The project managed to deliver 4 tons of vegetables to 14 different locations using 2 small transport trucks around Ho Chi Minh City impacting a large amount of citizens. Moreover, this project also assisted the farmers that were unable to sell their vegetables because distribution was not available during COVID-19 at the time - they were stuck with tons of vegetables that was going to go bad with no one to sell to.
4 tons of vegetables were delivered to 14 different locations in the city.
Sponsorship from Samin Water for 2 small transport trucks to deliver.
In the future, during the trip from Da Lat to Ho Chi Minh City, we need to think about having a cooling system to ensure the freshness of the vegetables. We noticed and had to sort through vegetables that went bad due to the tough climate during delivery.
