International Youth Build Houses for Vietnamese Families
In the summer of 2023, many international youth volunteer groups participated in many volunteer activities in Vietnam such as building houses of love to support poor people, guiding students to sort garbage, painting murals, and doing performances for local people.
Volunteers joining a voluntary program of the French non-governmental organization Les Enfants du Dragon (Children of the Dragon) participate in the project titled "Spiruline Hau Boi - phase 5" in Soc Trang province.

Members of the volunteer group have directly participated in a number of stages from mixing cement-sand mortar, concrete, building brick walls, to teaching martial arts in Vietnam.
With the contribution of French volunteers, the houses were completed and donated to disadvantaged households in the Mekong Delta province of Soc Trang.
