KOTO Winter Appeal 2016: 1,800 bowls of “Phở” for children in Ngan Son, Bac Can

On December 30th and 31st, 120 KOTO staff and trainees spent the last days of 2016 in Ngan Son, Bac Can, a small village located in the remote mountainous regions 220 kilometres away from Hanoi. This annual charity trip “Winter Appeal” is a part of the KOTO community service program, which aims to support the underprivileged communities and at the same time, a chance for our trainees to give back to the community and help those less fortunate than themselves.

​​This year, the event took place in Thuan Mang School, the biggest school in the area. KOTO was able to bring some joy and a new experience for the children of this region as most of therm has never tasted Pho - the Vietnam's signature dish.
