Funds raised to support poor people ahead Lunar New Year

More than 750,000 USD was raised at a program held in Ha Nam province on Sunday to help the poor enjoy a happy Lunar New Year festival later this month.

Volunteer clubs and charity organizations in Gia Lai province hosted performances to call for support for orphans and poor patients on the first days of the New Year. They also provided free meals for ethnic minority and poor patients who are under treatment at hospitals.

Health workers in Binh Dinh province have provided free medicine, and medical checkups, and disinfected water sources to people in flood-hit areas. Local medical staff have also launched blood donation campaigns.

"We have called on companies, and enterprises to support disadvantaged people, especially those in flood-hit areas. So far, 700 gifts have been donated to poor people and patients", said Le Quang Hung, Director of Binh Dinh province's Department of Health.
