The spirit of giving is specially highlighted when central regions of Vietnam were badly hit by continuous typhoons during the later months of 2020. As a connector LIN has supported our nonprofits working in climate and environment theme to access resources to implement their initiatives on the ground.
As a disastrous typhoon happened in the central region in September this year which destroyed many houses and incomes of local people, LIN realized the needs of companies and individuals seeking where best to support the affected communities. Among various approaches to address the immediate humanitarian needs of vulnerable communities in the most affected areas by tropical storms in the central Vietnam, LIN believes and supports the choice to direct community funding support to those local grass-root nonprofit groups and organizations which is currently operating in the affected areas and already had well- established experience in disaster relief activities. It will guarantee that the support can go directly to those who are in need and promise a more sustainable impact on local communities.
