In March 2020, when the pandemic began, Ho Chi Minh City grappled with confusion and swift restrictions to combat COVID-19. Stores closed, movement was restricted, and many faced financial hardships, particularly the homeless and blue-collar workers. The government introduced rice-dispensing ATM machines, largely funded by donors, to provide free rice. Responding to the crisis, a group of compassionate high school students formed CoRiceNa (RiceForLife), representing those who wanted to contribute but couldn't due to restrictions. We accept donations, using 100% of monetary contributions to purchase rice, which we then transport to the ATM machines. As community needs shifted to fresh vegetables, our name changed to RauForLife (Vegetable for Life).
