People in northern Vietnam have braced themselves for a very strong cold spell which striked the region on December 29.
Quang Binh district is one of the districts with difficult socio-economic conditions in Ha Giang province, and the poor condition of school facilities for semi-boarding rooms of the local kindergarten and primary schools negatively affected children's ability to get a good education.
Mattresses warm enough for students to sleep, are at a critical shortage, affecting their health.
With the desire to share difficulties and help them dispel the cold in winter, GNI has handed over 75 beddings to three kindergartens and primary schools in Tan Bac and Yen Thanh communes with a total value of more than VND 90 million (USD 3,893). These are meaningful and practical gifts for students.
In addition to helping address the urgent needs of children to have warm beddings in cold winter, the humanitarian goods also contribute to spread love and care to children in remote areas.
Earlier, 3,994 gifts were presented by GNI to sponsored children in Hoa Binh, Tuyen Quang and Ha Giang provinces. Each gift was a sweatshirt, for 583 preschoolers, 1,854 primary school students, 1,251 secondary students and 306 high school students with a total value of more than VND 600 million (USD 25.956).
Through this activity, GNI hopes to contribute to encouraging the children's spirit before the new year 2021, helping them to protect their health in the cold winter.
