The Vietnamese people have a saying “ The good leaves protect the worn- out leaves”, TRH - The Railway Hanoi Project needs you to protect us, so we can protect the other worn-out leaves through this tough Covid19 time.
Dear all friends, we think Covid 19 is a huge problem to the whole world. It's been affecting everyone negatively, including you and us. We hope that we can share some sympathy with each others today. It's been over 100 days since Covid19 explored in the world. We feel lucky that Vietnam is one of the best Covid19 fighter in the world. We had only over 350 cases, and no deads. However, Vietnam still closes its borders that makes a small business ( with 99% customers are tourists) like us is struggling. We don't have any customers for the last 3 months. All our previous bookings were canceled. We heard that Vietnam will open international flights in Octorber 2020. However, we think that until today many other countries are still dealing with Covid toughly. When people get recovered from Covid, as a matter of priority, they'll travel inbound to support their own country's tourism. If they want to travel to Vietnam, they might have to take 14 days of quarantine when they arrive the airport. We see many reasons to make it difficult for tourism in Vietnam this year, and maybe even the next 2 years. We're seeking a solution for us and our kids.
As you may know, we're a small cafe - community project that has been running healthy and effectively since 2017. We use the profit of the cafes to fund the community project. The cafes has been closed for already 3 months because of Covid that means we have no money to support the project. However, we still try to keep our free English - Art class for the kids running. We see the class brings education, joy and brither future for 20 kids from the train street and their friends. Look at Covid damage, we are not sure the cafes can revive later, but we have a wish to keep this class growing until the end of this years. We have 6 more months to give the kid a package for their future before we have to leave this street and our lovely cafes. We're raising 20,000 USD which is enough to pay for 6 months of fixed cost for the class, the team and the bills. At the moment, we do 5 lessons/ week for 20 kids ( age from 5 to 14) with 3 staffs and 4 volunteers. This sytem will not able to suvive for another week without financial help. Please help us right now, today. It's urgent!
You can start to donate from 1USD. It'll mean a lot to us and our kids. You can also SHARE this link with people you know that care for children and love Vietnam. BRidge us with more helpers. We don't know how to thank you enough. We may the forces will always be with you. And hopefully, if our cafes can survive, we'll be very happy to meet you in perosn, give you warm great hugs and take you on our free train tour in one of the most beautiful street in Hanoi. <3
