Campaigns

During the more than 45 years since the foundation of MCNV, we have been receiving kind donations from loyal individual donors in the Netherlands to implement our programs and projects in Vietnam. Though MCNV still has about 5,500 individual donors today, this network of donors has gradually decreased over time as people grow old and pass away. One solution to compensate for the loss of individual donors is to mobilise more funds from institutional donors. Since 2010 we have also initiated activities to appeal for donations from individuals and organisations within Vietnam, through fundraising campaigns in the provinces where MCNV has programs and projects.

MCNV’S calculations work in Phu Yen and Nong

Better food + less sickness = less poverty In Phu Mo, Phu Yen province and in Nong, Savannakhet province (Laos), MCNV supervises two projects to combat child malnutrition. Our approach to the problems in the isolated villages is broader than just a nutrition plan for the little ones, we also include agriculture and hygiene in and around the houses. The result: better food, fewer diseases and, in the long run, less poverty.
