Vietnam was initially a standout success in battling the COVID-19 virus – in early May, it had recorded just over 3,100 confirmed cases and 35 deaths since the start of the pandemic. But cases have rapidly increased in the past month and now stand at more than 7,800, with 49 deaths.
This is, in part due to the spread of the deadly India virus strain appearing in Vietnam. This strain has caused devastation in India.
Vietnam needs your help!
My "If You Can Dream" Foundation received a request of support from the Saigon Children Charity because of this increase and I have joined forces with my Ambassadors Mia Vanessa Prom, Royal International Miss Philippines - Pre-Teen, and Mariah Derby-Wine, Royal International Miss Puerto Rico - Jr. Teen, to create this campaign to raise funds to help Vietnam.
The picture you see on the right are children in Vietnam that are being quarantined in adult Hazmat clothes due to lack of other resources. The country has only 0.1% of the population fully vaccinated so, while they wait for the vaccines, the Saigon Children Charity will be distributing backpacks to the families in need with food and other supplies.
