NDO - Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh visited and presented scholarships, each worth VND1 million (US$44), to 200 poor Cham students living in Ho Chi Minh City, on September 3.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony, the Deputy PM said he was pleased to know that many Cham students have overcome various difficulties in order to achieve good academic results.
