Almost 10 billion VND to support orphans, disabled people

QĐND – Monday, April 12, 2010, 21:25 (GMT+7)

Almost 10 billion VND have been raised at the seventh charity art programme entitled “One Heart – One World” that was held at the Hanoi Friendship Palace on April 11.

The programme, organised by the Ministry of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs and the Vietnam Association in Support of Disabled People and Orphans and the Vietnam Television in anticipation of the Vietnam Day of People with Disabilities (April 18), also received 400 million VND from the auctions of two MobiFone sim cards.

The annual ‘One Heart – One World’ programme has become an information channel which helps the community get closer to the work of supporting people with disabilities and orphans. It is also aimed at calling on sectors, organisations and individuals to join hands to help improve the quality of life for orphans and needy people.

With the donations, the association will conduct cataract surgeries for 2,500 poor blind people. It will also provide vocational training for 1,500 disabled people and orphans and 6,000 wheelchairs and bicycles for disabled people and orphans along with 2,500 scholarships for orphans in 10-15 communes.

Also on the occasion, the Phi Long sand picture establishment in the central province of Binh Thuan has presented two pictures – late President Ho Chi Minh’s portrait and the Hanoi Tortoise Tower – made by disabled people to the capital city to mark the 1,000th millennial anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi.
