(The opening speech of the Winter Warm Love Music Night, by the Chairman of Tu Tam Association in Dak Lak)
First of all, I would like to express the deep gratitude of the Dak Lak Tu Tam Association to all the sponsors and companions who have enthusiastically supported us to carry out many charitable activities, in many years. past year.
Writer Victor Hugo once said, “There is only one thing in this world that we must bow our heads to: talent; And there is only one thing that we have to respect on our knees: kindness! “.
At this Music Night, we have the opportunity to meet people who have both Kindness and Talent. That is positive energy, happiness.
We all know: Dak Lak Tu Tam Association was formed from the process of organizing dozens of charity action programs over the past 3 years, bringing many useful values to the social community of the Dak Lak Tu Tam Friends Group.
Since the beginning of 2020, when the Covid-19 pandemic began to appear in many provinces and cities, then gradually spread to Dak Lak, the public trusted and called on us to mobilize community resources for charity. I established the Tu Tam Friends Group in Dak Lak, continuously organizing programs to contribute to the government and people, to help provinces fight the Covid-19 epidemic. Typically, more than 10 programs gather resources to support the frontline, support remote areas, support the health, education, farmers, agriculture and rural sectors, help villages fight the epidemic, help people back home etc…
In particular, the program “For the people in flood areas” with a music night held on the evening of November 29, 2020, was attended by provincial leaders and many sponsors, making the first contribution, such as Mr. Bui Van Cuong – Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee (now General Secretary of the National Assembly, Chairman of the Office of the National Assembly), Mr. Y Bier Nie – Deputy Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Chairman of the Provincial People’s Council. From the Music Night to the end of gift giving in January 2021, the program has been supported by more than 780 million VND from many benefactors; have given people in flood areas many valuable raft beds for long-term use.

The program “Dak Lak agricultural products exchange medical supplies to fight Covid-19”, in July and August 2021, sold nearly 2 billion dong of fruit to gardeners, and received more than 300 million dong to buy supplies. anti-epidemic medical equipment and many other essential items to donate to anti-epidemic forces and poor people in remote areas.
The program “Helping people return home in just 2 weeks” has promptly provided about 20,000 valuable meals for tens of thousands of hungry people who have traveled long distances from Ho Chi Minh City to their hometown to avoid the epidemic.
With these charity programs, Tu Tam Group has mobilized and given a total amount of money, gifts and medical supplies worth more than 7 billion VND. But more precious than material values, is the value of educating people to love people, patriotism, love people, spreading the sense of companionship with authorities at all levels to protect peace for society and the country.
The fact that Dak Lak Tu Tam Association is recognized by the government as the legality helps the Association to organize many effective charity programs, and has more conditions to publicize and transparently all necessary information in a professional manner.

With so many things, where does the Association mobilize its resources?

Of course, the need for the Association’s funds to ensure stable operation is much more than that.
The Association’s website, an information page that can be read in 20 popular languages around the world, with many articles, reports, and youtube links vividly describing the charity programs that the Association continuously deploys, has It is clear that all activities of the Association ensure the principles of voluntary, publicity, transparency, non-profit, non-political, spreading goodness, promoting good things for society to become more united and human. love, progress, civilization.
Even the way to choose the official public account of the Association, also shows that clearly. The account name is Hoi Tu Tam Dak Lak, very easy to remember.

Everyone knows that 47 is the first 2 numbers in the license plate of Dak Lak province; 01 is the first charity in Dak Lak province to get account numbers from this public and transparent automated technology app.

The association is striving to build a charity fund named Tu Tam Fund in Dak Lak in 2023. According to Decree 93, the provincial charity fund needs at least 1.3 billion dong as a deposit. Understanding the meaning and value of the establishment of this Fund, Trung Nguyen Legend Group sponsored the Association 500 million VND. It’s precious.
