PANO – 30 student volunteers from the Ham Rong Voluntary Group have joined forces with soldiers, civil defence force, and local citizens in putting out a fire in Linh Truong pine forest in Hoang Yen Commune, Hoang Hoa District, Thanh Hoa Province.


After two hours fighting the blaze, the volunteers successfully saved 75 hectares out of 90 hectares of the pine forest.


Moreover, these volunteers distributed nearly 1,000 documents related to forest protection and birth-control to local people.  


They also helped local people clean up village roads and dredge ditches. Additionally, in response to their call, local and neighbouring provincial benefactors granted 30 scholarships, each worth VND 100,000, and 10 gifts to students with adversity and the families of wounded soldiers and martyrs.
