Makeshift and highly hazardous bridges in villages in poor villages are being replaced with engineer-design concrete bridges suitable for pedestrian and vehicular traffic thanks to Vietnam Foundation’s successful bridge building program. We partner up with local charities and pro-bono bridge design engineers to deliver a continuing program of bridge building which helps connect communities, and vastly improve safety and accessibility for all.
Kênh Cùng Bridge, Long Mỹ District, Hậu Giang Province
Crossing the old Kênh Cùng “bridge” was a daily hazard and a tragedy waiting to happen.

The new 5-tonne, 30 m concrete bridge, opened in 01/2019, has transformed the life of local villagers…
… as well as connecting communities and stimulating local commerce.
