Viet Nam News HCM CITY — Cargill Cares Council, Cargill Incorporated’s international charity fund raiser, has mobilised over VNĐ6 billion (US$261,300) for community projects in Việt Nam’s poor rural areas since June last year.
Since its establishment in 1997, the employee-led Cargill Cares Council has raised over VNĐ120 billion in Việt Nam and built around 87 schools in 47 provinces and carried out other community projects such as digging wells to supply clean water.
It recently built two schools in Quảng Trị and Nam Định provinces and plans to build another in Quảng Trị in August.
