KMF 2018 FINANCIAL REPORT

 

KONTUM MISSIONARY AND FRIENDSHIP (KMF)

2018 FINANCIAL REPORT

Dear Friends and Benefactors,
 
With great joy and gratitude we'd like to present to you the 2018 financial report. Overall we had a very successful year. As you notice, the spending budget, including the funds from donors who wish to remain anonymous,  surpasses 200,000 USD. This significant amount of funds enabled us to complete multiple projects from education, nutrition and health care, which are the most urgent needs among the poor in Kontum and Gia Lai provinces. 
 
We'd like to take this opportunity to express our most sincere and profound gratitude to all of you. Many lives have changed for the better as a result of your kindness and generosity. We pray that God may bestow on you and your loved ones His abundant grace. May the Risen Lord fill your hearts with Joy and Peace. 
 
Rev. Tam N. Nguyen
KMF President

KMF 2018 Funding & Spending

The KMF funds come from US, Canada, Australia, Europe and Vietnam.  As such, the main currencies sources are in US Dollar, Canadian Dollar, Australian Dollar and Vietnamese Dong. 

The amount in US Dollars comes from the KMF (Kontum Missionary and Friendship) non-profit organization in the US.  Contributions to this fund are from KMF members as well as non-members, their families and friends, and benefactors with the sole purpose of helping the poor, the handicapped, and the less fortunate ethnic montagnards in the Central Highland Areas of Vietnam. 

The fund in Australian Dollars is raised by KMF members as well as non-members through Rev. Hai Thanh Ha in Australia.

The fund in Canadian Dollars is raised by KMF and non-KMF members, their families and friends and Rev. Paul Than Bui in Surrey, Canada.  He also organizes a local concert every two years to raise funds for KMF.

KMF members and non-members from France, Germany, and Switzerland...also contribute to the funds in Euro, mainly through KMF France, then converted into US Dollars.

Contributions in Vietnam are from local KMF members as well as non-members and benefactors, their families and friends.

Fund raising activities in all countries mirror those of the US KMF calendar.

The following schematic describes the process by which the funding reaches the final destinations.

PROGRAMS DESCRIPTIONS

1 – Healthcare Assistance Program (2018 Actual):

Total For Healthcare Assistance Program:            741,430,000$ VN

(~ 32,000$ USD)

This item consists of two parts:

  • Cao Thượng Health Clinic (Located in Kon Jodreh, Kontum)
    • Medicine Cabinets Program for Remote Montagnard Villages

1.1  Cao Thượng Health Clinic (2018 Actual Costs):                506,380,000$ VN  

                                                                                                (~ 22,000$ USD)

The Cao Thượng Health Clinic was founded in 2010 by KMF in Kon Jơdreh Village, situated 10km from the City of Kontum, with the purpose of providing health exams and cares / cures for the poor, free of charge, regardless of their religions, mostly for the montagnards belonging to the villages from Kon Rẫy County which is one of the poorest counties in Kontum Province. 

The Cao Thượng Health Clinic is opened daily, including on Saturdays and Sundays from 7.30h to 17.00h.  Each day, the health clinic workers provide health exams and dole out medicines to approximately 60 poor and needy patients. On weekends, however, it normally is more crowded, in the range of 90 to 120 people.   In addition, the workers fan out to provide exams and medicines to the old and the handicapped who cannot move around in the region.

Typically, the monthly costs of the healthcare workers and the upkeep of the clinic run about 20 million VN (~880$ USD each month) with the additional cost of the medicines about 30 million VN (~1,320$ USD each month).

Cao Thuong Health Clinic patients visits in the presence of a local doctor and available daily nurse consultations.

The health clinic is stocked with basic medicines for distribution following doctor visits and nurse consultations. 

 

1.2   Medicine Cabinets for Remote Montagnard Villages (2018 Actual Costs) 

         235,050,000 $VN (~ 10,000$USD)

The Medicine Cabinets Program for remote montagnard villages has been in existence since 2012.  Up until now, twenty villages are recipients of this program.  Village recipients to this program are from various counties from Kontum and Pleiku Provinces, from Tumorong, Dak Glei, Ngọc Hồi, Dak To…to Sa Thầy, Dak Hà, Dak Đoa...

The Medicine Cabinets Program is locally administered by the village priest or the religious sisters, the Yă (the religious sisters from the montagnard villages) who have some knowledge in basic healthcare. 

Naturally, local people in the region rather come to their local priests and religious sisters for their healthcare needs in lieu of the  health centers in their villages and counties with an unspoken understanding that they can be easily listened to and receive the medicine free of charge.  However, there is a limit to the available resources.  Each month, the cost of this program runs about 1,600$ US. In 2018, KMF can only fund approximately 10,000$ USD (235,050,000$ VN actual).  So the funding only covers 6 months of the year.

The Medicine Cabinets Program of Plei Jodrop Village, Dak Năng County, Kontum Province.
