Statistics reveal that up till now, 59,292 free photos have been gifted to poor people.
The 8th Vietnam Help-Portrait Program was held in 15 nationwide provinces and cities of Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi, Hue, Da Nang, Binh Dinh, Nha Trang, Vung Tau, Hai Phong, Da Lat, Buon Me Thuoc, Binh Thuan, Binh Phuoc, Bien Hoa, Can Tho, An Giang, and Tho Chu Island.
More than 1,000 photographers and volunteers participated in the event this year. 
Untilthis moment, Help-Portrait has already gifted 59,292 free photos to poor people.
Being organized for 8 years (2010-2017), Help-Portrait has drawn more and more attention from the public. 
Each year, nearly 2,000 young people all over the country take part in the program. 
In addition to the official activities of the event, which happened simultaneously in the country, the groups of volunteers also actively visited poor and remote areas to take free photos of residents there at any appropriate time and gifted them.
As usual, at places like hospitals, charity houses, orphanages, and centres for children with disabilities, Vietnam Help-Portrait organized Christmas parties for disadvantaged kids.
Particularly, with this year’s topic of “Diary of Smiles”, the organization board hoped that they could bring happiness, smiles, as well as memorable experiences to people via their photos.
