During 2018, funds received from Australian donors earmarked for Vietnam were allocated to various relief projects:
- In the Nghe An Province, Central Vietnam, the disabled and elderly were assisted. When some old homes were repaired, the local community became energised, which in turn inspired the students to strive for a better life.
- Dilapidated houses of poor families were repaired at Go Vap and Binh Phuoc.
- In Thu Duc district, Ho Chi Minh City, full time and partial scholarships for disadvantages children were offered. Tutoring was given to enhance quality learning for those children who showed promise. Some teachers were employed to improve the task of coordination and supervision as there had been no previous personnel to do this.
- Patients in Thi Xa La Gi region received dialysis and anuria treatment. A number of leprosy patients were also given medical attention, whilst people who had suffered from occupational accidents were assisted with their individual requirements. Some bicycles for poor young people were purchased to enable them to travel to school or for jobs.
