The second Hanoi Poetry and Storytelling Slam, titled “Lost in Translation”, will be held in Hanoi on September 11.

The event is designed to encourage creative intercultural communication between younger generations from a diverse range of backgrounds.

“Lost in Translation” will also encompass cocktail tastings for audience members and performances by composer Jordan Senior.

Hanoi Slam is not-for-profit—all proceeds benefit Humanitarian Services for Children of Vietnam (HSCV).

Founded in 2002, the non-governmental organization works tirelessly to keep vulnerable children safe and in school.

It has provided 300,881 kg of rice to malnourished children, awarded 1,508 scholarships, equipped 15,402 disabled children with wheelchairs, donated 321 bicycles to poor children, assisted in funding 72 heart surgeries, covered everyday necessities for over 300 orphans, and established the Girls Foster Home for 14 autistic orphans.
