These funds purchased  98 water filters and 372 solar lights to some of the hardest hit areas of the Philippines.  To learn more about the water and solar filters, please check out our partner site, Kopernik (http://kopernik NULL.info/project/the-philippines-typhoon-emergency-response-six). Additionally, we worked with a local community group to supply 18 temporary housing kits to affected families in the Cebu City area.  Although most mainstream media coverage in the area has stopped – there are still many families in need in the Philippines, please donate (http://rosecharities NULL.us/get-involved/donate/) to help us continue to provide shelter, fresh water and light to those areas.

Rose Charities Vietnam Helps Village Children

Here are some photos of some of the activities of Rose Charities Vietnam. We work with the village Thanh Tien near Hue in Central Vietnam. This village has traditionally been a centre for making paper flowers. You can see some of the flowers in the background of this photo. The art of flower-making was dying out with young people moving away to find work elsewhere and the village became very poor with much hardship. We have helped the village revive the flower-making craft and turn it into a tourist destination. Here are some of the other projects that have resulted from the new-found prosperity in the village.

Rose Vietnam also runs a kindergarten and provide scholarships for post secondary education disadvantaged children and young people from the area. If you are travelling to Hue make sure you visit the village and take part in a flower-making workshop and bring home your own hand-crafted souvenirs and be part of the project!
