On July 6, the Consulate General of New Zealand in Ho Chi Minh City delivered boxes of fruit to residents of Chance Village in Binh Tan District. The event is part of a collaboration with major New Zealand exporters to donate over 500 boxes of fruit to children’s and women’s charities in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.

Speaking at the video event, Triden Dobson, New Zealand Ambassador to Vietnam, said her country is always ready to help Vietnam improve community health by providing nutrient-rich agricultural products.

Founded in 1993, Maison Chance is an organization for the disabled, orphans and the underprivileged in Vietnam. It consists of three units in Ho Chi Minh City: Lobby (accommodation), Envol Center (vocational training), Opportunity Village (primary school and air-conditioned apartments for people with disabilities), and a new community center located in Dak Nong Province (Central Highlands).
