Quang Ngai gives bicycles to needy pupils

QĐND – Saturday, December 18, 2010, 22:18 (GMT+7)

PANO- On December 17th, the Vietnam Children Protection Fund (VCPF), in cooperation with the Military Commercial Joint Stock Bank (MB), held a ceremony at the Binh Son District People’s Committee, Quang Ngai Province, to give bicycles to 50 pupils whose families had been hard hit by the mid – November floods.

These 50 bicycles (worth 1 million each) are meaningful Christmas and New Year’s gifts for these flood victims in Quang Ngai Province.

This year the Military Bank poured 350 million VND in the Fund to support disadvantaged and needy children. 20 million VND are for children at the Vietnam Friendship Village (Van Canh commune, Hoai Duc District, Hanoi); the rest was spent on 45 scholarships, 15 bicycles, and 15 wheelchairs to disadvantaged children in Thua Thien- Hue Province. Also, essential gifts, such as, bicycles, beds, clothes, books, and food, were given to 150 flood – hit pupils in Khanh Hoa, Phu Yen, Binh Dinh Provinces; and to 100 children in An Giang and Quang Ngai Provinces.

Since early this year the MB has donated over 5 billion VND for carrying out diverse activities for community development.

The MB’s Motto is that each staff member becomes a humanitarian ambassador.
