Mother Thu, born in 1904 in Dien Ban District’s Dien Thang Commune, died on December 10 at her home in the central province of Quang Nam aged 106.

In the war, her house was used to shelter soldiers who fought in the enemy-occupied areas. She also used her garden to hide liberation soldiers.

In 2007, on the 60th Anniversary Day of War Invalids and Martyrs, the construction of Vietnam Heroic Mother Statue began. It is to be built on a 15-hectare site located at Cam Mountain in New Urban Zone Tan Phu, Tam Ky City, Quang Nam. The statue is expected to be completed in 2011.

Inside the statue, there is a list of names of over 50,000 heroic mothers. In addition, the statue tells the stories about the lives and the contributions these individuals made for their country. There are also pictures and art works relating to the mothers.

The funeral for Nguyen Thu Thu will be held at the martyrs’ cemetery in Dien Ban District on December 14.
