On August 7, 2020 Friends of Mongolia received a letter of appreciation from the Office of the President of Mongolia. Friends of Mongolia, as well as other partners, provided financial support to the People in Need Mongolia NGO’s project to provide education, hygiene, food packages and hot meals to vulnerable children as part of our Community Development Grants. Within the framework of this support, food and educational support was provided to about 750 kindergarten-age children in the ger districts of the capital city, and nearly 10,000 hot meals were provided to about 500 children from two schools in a month.
The Office of the President of Mongolia presented a letter of appreciation to the Friends of Mongolia in recognition of this contribution to reducing the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on target families and children. Friends of Mongolia would like to thank all the project partners, the Ministry of Education, People In Need, SDC, Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Ulaanbaatar, Namuun Children’s Foundation, Breathe Mongolia, Mongolian National University of Medical Science, Mongolia Live, Mongolian Red Cross Society, and Mongolian Collegiate Basketball Association for the timely collaboration and effective implementation to support children and families in need. FOM is proud to have contributed to this effort and will sustain our mandate to positively impact vulnerable lives in Mongolia.
