As we continue our mission to deliver more and more permanent stable bridges to underdeveloped areas, “Build-a-Bridge” – a Nam Phuong Foundation sponsored project will bring happiness to the people of Long An by the groundbreaking of Kenh Ca Rang Bridge, Long An Province.
This is the 1st bridge to be located in Long An and so far the 7th project we completed in the Mekong Delta.
Locating in the key traffic route of Long An and allowing more than 300 families to move from Tan An to Thu Thua and vice versa, as well as connecting to other village 1, 2, 3, 4, Kenh Thuy Tan Bridge – Ca Rang Channel has been playing an important role in the flow of food and traffic in Thanh Hoa. However, the current bridge is badly damaged which has been an obsession for the locals for a long time.
Nam Phuong Foundation has conducted extensive research and survey before making the final decision. The bridge which has the foundation built (has been stopped because of running out of budget) is to be made of reinforced concrete, dimension 48 meters long x 2.9 meters wide, with a total budget of VND 500 million, whereas 100% came from KIDO Group. When it is put into operation, Kenh Thuy Tan Bridge will be a remarkable change in people’s lives here. Not only would it facilitate traffic to and from Tan An, Thu Thua to neighboring communes, but the way to school for local children there would be much safer as the new semester is about to begin.
As of now, ‘Build-a-Bridge’ by Nam Phuong Foundation has completed and put into use 5 bridges, including Loi Trinh, Mot Thuoc, Sinh Chanh 1, Sinh Chanh 2 in Cai Be District, Tien Giang, and Tan Hau in Ben Tre. To continue our streak, we deliver Kenh Thuy Tan Bridge with the hope that it will transform the life and improve living condition for these rural areas.
