The model, initiated and run by the Vietnam Red Cross Society (VRCS), has so far taken place in all 63 provinces and cities nationwide in a bid to support people losing their incomes and badly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The target group includes workers with disadvantaged backgrounds, poor people, families with disabled members, people aged above 65, and single-mom households.
Goods presented at these markets are results of donations raised by officials of the provincial chapter of the VRCS as well as support from the VRCS central committee and the provincial chapter’s charity fund. 

This is a meaningful activity in response to the 2020 Charity Month programme.
