Representative of Anh Linh School thanked to MSD and Spin Master

Ms. Nguyen Phuong Linh – Executive Director of MSD shared: “When thinking about children, we often talk about EATING – LEARNING – PLAYING. These sound very popular, but to vulnerable children whom we are supporting, it’s very different. Having enough food to eat, going to school and playing with toys are hard to approach. We are very happy to cooperate with businesses, and donors, especially Spin Master. Thanks to this, we could bring to children these smart and safe toys. The children’s smiles today expressed positive thoughts and dreams of the future, so we hope to become motivated people to help them overcome the difficulties and develop their potential to grow and succeed.”

Hopefully, there will be more donors and sponsors joining hands with us to take care of and support these vulnerable children.”
