Ha Phuong's gifts are delivered to needy households by soldiers.

The singer did not disclose the total value of the gifts, saying that she just wanted to contribute a little to the city's fight against the epidemic and hope that HCM City people would soon overcome difficult days.

 

All charity activities of Ha Phuong are supported by her husband, billionaire Chinh Chu, one of the wealthiest Vietnamese-origin residents in the US.

Every time she returns home to visit her family, Ha Phuong actively does charity work.

Ha Phuong was a well-known singer in Vietnam before she married to billionaire Chinh Chu in 2002 and settled down in the US. Her two sisters – Cam Ly and Minh Tuyet - are also famous singers in Vietnam and the community of overseas Vietnamese in the US.
