Volunteers in this project will help out at a charity restaurant that offers affordable meals to poor students and local workers in Ho Chi Minh City. The restaurant does fundraising in order to be able to offer quality meals at a low cost of 2000 VND (less than 10 cents).

Volunteers are needed in this project to support the charity mission of the restaurant and help prepare meals for poor people. Volunteers with relevant experience can join the cooking. Most of the time, volunteers will help preparing food, washing vegetables, setting up tables.

The restaurant is located in the central part of Ho Chi Minh City. Participants in this charity project will be able to learn about life in the city which changes very quickly with a growing gap between different parts of society.
