In the Thua Thien Hue Province of Vietnam, 40% of those under five live in poverty, that is, less than $15 a month (urban area) or $11 a month (rural area). Friends of Hue Foundation works to meet the urgent needs of those in this province, particularly those who face natural disasters.
Its Food Program tries to meet the needs for basic food and nutrition by distributing rice, noodles, milk, and clean water through a few programs, including its Disaster Relief program and Mobile Clinic Program during monsoon season when food becomes difficult to obtain.

With a flair for spontaneity, pizzazz, creative excellence and her own unique sense of aesthetic grace and perspective, we have our very dear friend, Belinda (or B, to some of us). Although an incredibly accomplished professional and career woman, B’s down-to-earth approach and demeanor transcends all scenarios, communities and people. She manifests, in her day-to-day, the essence of the word “Zomppa” as demonstrated by her extraordinary commitment to creating sustainable and positive change for us and future generations to come. She’s asked for a dog every year since she was five. Check out Belinda’s work on global education research and coaching: www.hummingbirdrcc.com or more about her portfolio www.belindachiu.com.
