The Republic of Korea (RoK)’s medical organisation for peace (Medipeace) has sponsored over USD 1 million for the central province of Quang Tri to support children with disabilities to access rehabilitation and improve their lives in 2018-2020.
The project has been carried out since June 2018 in Go Linh, Trieu Phong and Hai Lang districts.
The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and the provincial People’s Committee have coordinated to implement the “Happy Quang Tri” programme in Vinh Linh, Hai Lang, Trieu Phong, Cam Lo, Huong Hoa, Dakrong, and Gio Linh districts.
This followed the successful implementation of the RoK’s “new village” programme with a total investment of over USD 11.6 million, including more than USD 9.6 million in non-refundable aid package of KOICA.
The “Happy Quang Tri” programme covers projects to increase local incomes, build new rural areas, improve health capacity, forestation for environmental protection, public administration management, and develop infrastructure.
Its main goals of increasing local incomes and reducing poverty have been achieved.
Quang Tri has become more attractive to Korean businesses in recent years, especially in the fields of infrastructure, seaport and energy./.
