A Sai Gon Giai Phong reader, the owner of a textile and garment business in Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Binh Industrial Zone, said that after reading an article about a struggling underprivileged student, they felt compelled to help.

Tung grew up in a poor family, raised by his grandmother after his parents divorced when he was one month old. He has struggled all his life to eke out a living and was forced to drop out of school when he couldn’t afford the tuition.
He says he asked his father for money, but was refused. His grandmother eventually borrowed enough money to help him return to his education and he recently passed the university entrance exam.
The SGGP reader has promised to fund Tung’s studies for the next four years.
