Additional 25 billion VND to build houses at borders and on islands

QĐND – Sunday, December 19, 2010, 22:38 (GMT+7)

PANO – An exchange program, “Businesses and Businessmen with Border Houses”, held at the Hai Phong City Convention Center the evening of December 18th, collected more than 25 billion VND from benefactors to support the campaign, “Houses for Poor People in Border Regions and Offshore Islands”.

The convention center was crowded with participants despite cold weather and the decisive football match between Vietnam and Malaysia broadcasted live at the same time.

At the event, enterprises and businessmen, with great contributions to the campaign, were honored while beneficiaries expressed their touching emotions and deep gratitude towards the benefactors.

Thanks to the campaign, more and more houses have been built for the needy. To date, 5,404 houses have been erected for ethnic minority people in border regions and offshore islands nationwide, along with 183 public facilities in border regions, including 1,735 houses and 33 public facilities built in 2010.

The exchange, broadcast live on Hai Phong Radio and Television and Channel VTC2, was jointly organized by the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee; the Border Guard High Command; Hai Phong City People’s Committee; the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry; and the People’s Army Newspaper.
