Vietnamese-born student awarded educational prize in Australia

In Uncategorized on December 16, 2010 at 9:40 am

Twenty-one year old Vietnamese migrant who arrived as an injured has been awarded the title of most excellent student in Australia’s western state of Queensland for 2010, which is a part of Australia’s annual international Training and Education Awards.

Vietnamese Australian K’Chin

K’Chin was born in Vietnam’s Central Highlands province of Lam Dong. He suffered a serious leg injury when he was one month old.

Until he was 13 years old, an Australian charity, Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children proposed to treat him.

Doctors first treated his malnourishment before they began a series of 16 major operations.

Three and a half years, later K’Chin went back to Vietnam, where he lived in an orphanage because his family could not support him. Complications forced him to return to Australia for more treatment.

The care has been successful and the 21-year old can now walk. Illiterate and unable to speak English when he arrived in Australia eight years ago, K’Chin has since conquered two languages.

He said at the awarding ceremony he was honoured and the award was beyond his expectations.

His school friends from St. James College in the city of Brisbane have also elected him to head up the school’s student association next year.

He also asked HUD to continue developing building urban areas in provinces and cities nationwide and focus on building more houses for workers, students and low-income earners.

The HUD trademark has become more and more popular on the local market thanks to its successful implementation of major projects to develop modern urban areas, such as Dinh Cong, My Dinh II, Viet Hung, Linh Dam, Van Quan, and Phap Van-Tu Hiep.

Since June 2000, HUD has developed under the form of a state-owned Corporation, with a focus on developing high-rise buildings, urban areas and key economic zones in all three regions of the country. The Corporation has contributed greatly to the national social welfare programme. Recently, HUD was chosen by the Ministry of Construction as a key partner in the project to build Vietnam Housing and Urban Development Group in the near future.
