Caritas Vietnam alone has also received a lot of contributions from all sectors in Vietnam and abroad, organizations and individuals sent to help the people of the Central Region. How touching is that when the spirit of Christian charity is expressed in action, human love still abounds while our brothers and sisters are in need.

Vietnam is among the countries with the highest rates of trafficking in the world. The Vietnamese government is also aware of the human trafficking problem.
