Dear friends & supporters,
In light of the devastating COVID-19 outbreak, Tam Ky Project had raised about $4,000 last week to help over 300 seniors and families who live below poverty line and being affected by Covid-19 in Quang Nam, Vietnam (many were due to job loss).
Now, we want to focus our effort on helping the seniors & the homeless here in Orange County.
Many seniors are terrified by this outbreak and feel isolated and many can’t afford food nor they can go to the stores. Some said they made it to the stores but there were no food left.
Many low-income families with young kids are living in motels or homeless shelters with limited food supplies and many of these parents recently lost jobs due to this pandemic including pregnant women with young kids.
They all rely heavily on local Food Banks to provide food and Food Banks are now low on supplies and asking for help with funding as well. We are teaming up with TongueOut charity, Dr Iggy Igette & a few other non-profit to fundraise for local Food Banks and homeless shelters.
In addition,we also want to fundraise for 200+ N95 masks (about $800-$1,000) to provide to our frontline health workers at local hospitals. There is a mass shortage of medical masks and many doctors and nurses that I know personally are reusing their masks and gloves.
