ĐÀ NẴNG — Pop singer Mỹ Tâm and three overseas Vietnamese, Thanh Hà, Elvis Phương and Đình Nguyên, will join a live concert to raise funds for underprivileged children with cancer at Đà Nẵng’s Trưng Vương Theatre on January 19.
Event organiser, the Đà Nẵng Sun Flower Foundation, said the performance was part of an annual charity programme that raises money to help poor children with cancer living in Đà Nẵng and Quảng Nam Province.
It said this year it was hoped to raise VNĐ500 million (US$22,000) to support five children aged between three and 13 years.
The five children are being treated at the city’s Oncology Hospital.
According to the Đà Nẵng Association to Support Poor and Disadvantaged Women and Children, more than $28.6 million has been donated from foreign and domestic people to help cancer patients. — VNS
