SUMMARY OF PAST ACTIVITY

SUMMARY OF PAST ACTIVITY

The ViDan Foundation Inc. was initially formed as Hoa-Mai Club in 2005, and formally incorporated as a non-governmental, nonprofit humanitarian organization in March 2014. During the pilot period Hoa-Mai Club was funded by contributions from its own members and friends. On behalf of the recipients we would like to thank the Vietnam Compassion in France, especially Most Rev. Thich Khong Tanh and the respective religious leaders in Vietnam for their continue strong supports. We also thank all contributors, and volunteers in Vietnam and overseas for their wondeful efforts.
