Call for aid after flood!

Urgent help requested after flood catastrophe in Vietnam

Heavy flooding in Central Vietnam, triggered by heavy rains, killed many people. More than 46,000 were evacuated. The death toll is raising, many are without shelter. Joint action is needed now.

A video at EuroNews HERE.

Many people, especially the poor, were taken by surprise in the two hardest hit areas, Hue and Quang Tri.

Through members of Chance to Grow e.V., we learned first-hand that even pregnant women and babies drowned, other people lost their entire home. Many people are left with nothing.

We will help immediately and effectively. Nhi Nguyen, a member of Chance to Grow, is on site as of today. In addition, two long-term partner organizations of Chance to Grow e.V. are on site and help with volunteers. These people need our compassion and concrete help. Information will be uploaded toFacebook soon.

Organization we cooperate with on site

1. Association for the promotion of education in Quang Tri Provinz / Hội Khuyến Học tỉnh Quảng Trị

2. Buddhist charity in Hue/ Ban Từ Thiện Giáo Hội Phật Giáo Việt Nam tỉnh Thừa Thiên

What is needed most urgently now:

Our purpose

Children need food, medical help and access to education

Why Chance To Grow? Why be here?

We help where others are not. Little is reported about the plight of Vietnamese orphanages and the aftermath of a childhood without parents or living with disabilities in poor regions. Here we help - and your help moves something good.

The money arrives quickly, easily and directly to those who need help urgently. Orphans, blind and disabled children are given food, clothing and operations as well as help in disasters.

We ensure transparency: We disclose how we use your donations and what we can do with them. Therefore, we are always available for questions and nothing remains anonymous. Get to know us personally. And tell others - personal recommendations really help.

Why Vietnam?

Germany has a long and positive connection to Vietnam - the largest Asian community in Germany comes from Vietnam and many family ties bring both nations together. In particular, the German peacekeeping operation against the Vietnam War and the aid for victims of the chemical firebombing attacks, which still affect children in third generations through malformations, was an international beacon and will never be forgotten in Vietnam.

Although the country is developing well today, inequality is growing:

  • 11% of the population live below the already low poverty line.
  • Especially children are affected: 1/3 of all children under 16 are considered poor.
  • 13% of all school-age children do not attend school - e.g. because the school uniform (6 €) is too expensive.
  • 22 out of 1000 children die before their 5th birthday.
  • 16% of children are affected by child labor, mostly in agriculture.
  • In addition, many children are victims of child trafficking, such as when parents move to work in cities.

We are building on the close connection between our countries and, because we can, we want to help the children - effectively and quickly. Even small contributions change the life of a child forever.

Our last events

Doing good and speak about it: Chance to Grow with new online-channels

What is more satisfying than doing good for children in need? Even if they never see or know who helped them individually, it gives a deep satisfaction for donators and helpers to see the smile on a photo or video in the knowing that the children’s lives will be a little better than it was before.
This work is what motivates the voluntary helpers at Chance to Grow. The challenge however is, to be heard loud enough in an ever noisy social media competition for attention and find support for the next Charity program. To help us improving our situation, we asked MTP Frankfurt am Main, Germany, for help. And they said yes....

Love goes through the stomach: food donation for children in Griesheim.

Chance to Grow e.V. has collected funds for children in need, especially in Vietnam, in numerous campaigns over the past year. But in Germany there are children with a great need for help. The Ark in Frankfurt in Frankfurt takes care of many children with warm food, educational offers and development rooms. In a first-time cooperation, Chance to Grow e.V. donated 500 Euro to the Ark on Friday, 18.01.2019, which will be used for warm lunches. Daniel Schröder von der Arche accepted the check with children. Laughing, playing, learning children, who can be themselves in protected areas and are supported in development, that's what both clubs want.
