This was the second time Volunteer Club of UEB – VNU taking part in the Sunflower day. Bringing into play the success of the last year, the club received enthusiastic participation from students. They prepared very carefully for the day long time before.   Early morning of November 13th, like many other participants, they started making sunflowers with all their heart.



 Students concentrated on making flowers


After a few hours fully focusing on working, a huge number of flowers were created and contributed 37 million VND to the fund.



The break time was very exciting when students sat together and sang meaningful songs for cancer patients


The afternoon was more exciting when all participants shouted out their determination of making 10,000 flowers for the children. Each person worked harder than in the morning, and ay 16pm, the number of flowers exceeded 10,000. Part of this number was 2000 flowers made by the organization committee. The entire sum of money would be used to support the daily life of cancer children (one-time support for difficult, renting car to take children home, presents…).  The fund was raised and used effectively and clearly. It was known that the Sunflower day was the idea of Le Thanh Thuy - a younger who always tried to ignore her pain of cancer to take care of cancer children.  Thuy passed away before the age of 20 but her dream is taken over and carried on by many individuals and organizations, who work continuously for cancer children in Vietnam.
