Vu Phong Solar - Hoa Binh 11/2017
Heavy rain during 9th – 12th October 2017 resulting in flood and landslides in Hoa Binh Province, particularly in Da Bac District, causes dozens of people to die and many houses to be buried or washed away.

In response to the campaign, on December 2nd 2017, Vu Phong sponsored 10 solar kits with the thought like what Dr. Nguyen Hong Tien said: The gift is not big, but hopefully we can contribute a small part to help the people and share their suffering.

Đạ Mpô Primary School 11/2013.
Liêng Srônh is a particularly impoverished commune lying to the west of Đam Rông District, Lam Dong Province, 35 km from the town center. Due to its rugged mountain terrain, transportation is extremely difficult. Almost inhabitants here are ethnic minorities.
Đạ Mpô Primary School is located in Village 5 of this commune, without any road to enter. The dangerous bamboo raft is the only way to arrive at this school. Under such tough conditions, understandably, the national grid cannot reach this area.
In Nov 2013, with supporting of Department of Science and Technology of Lâm Đồng Province, we installed a 1.74kW solar power system which lighted 5 classrooms of this school. Especially, all of 50 LED lamps of this project are made and sponsored by Vu Phong. We really hope this change can make living and educating of teachers here easier.
