A BOY WITH A STORY TO TELL

THE STORY:

"Life is not easy”, says 20-year-old Binh*, with a wide smile. His father died many years ago. Soon after that, his mother remarried and he was ​abandoned. A tragic and hard-to-believe story for us but a ​not un​common thing in ​terribly poor, ​rural Vietnam.

Fortunately, Binh and his three siblings ​found​ a place to live. All together in a very small room of their ancestor's house in Hue, they lived ​together​ and supported each other. Binh finished high school and started working​ at menial jobs just​ to buy ​some simple f​ood for his ​younger ​brother and sister​ with the​ $45/month​ that he was able to make​. Now Binh smiles when talking about it and says: “If you ​just give it a​ try, and work hard, everything will be fine."

This attitude brought the boy to STREETS. Now Binh is in Class 9, on a way to his own success story. For the first time in his life, he has his own bed​​ in a comfortable​, safe​ and supervised house, three healthy meals a day and​ decent​ clothes. If you want to make sure​​ ​this​ story​ turns out fine for this hard working young man​, please donate to ​the ​STREETS International program. Every little ​bit ​helps ​ -- ​ provide ​three fresh,​ ​daily ​nutrition ​meals and clean water ​for $35/month, and​ the​ safe​​ housing for $50/month.​ The full​, life-changing ​cost to ​support Binh is $1800. If we can raise it, it will cover all the expenses​ of his entire 18-month program​ at STREETS.​
