The Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU) Central Committee announced at a meeting on January 6 that its local chapters have raised more than VND64 billion to help build 7,000 houses for women in difficult circumstances.
Last year, a campaign to build houses for poor women was launched nationwide and receive valuable support from international and domestic businesses, organizations, benefactors and local union members, said Tran Thanh Binh Vice President of the VWU Central Committee.
The Vice President highlighted great efforts made by provinces, cities, the union’s chapters and members in building houses for poor women.
The VWU Central Committee urges its local chapters to continue with the “Day for the Poor Women” campaign and ensure that at least two poor women will receive new houses a day this year.
The VWU Central Committee granted certificates of merit to 12 most outstanding students who achieved the highest markets at the university entrance exams in 2010.
