NDO – An arts programme entitled ‘Warm Spring’ was held in Hanoi, on January 17, to call for joint efforts from the whole of society to bring a warm and joyful Tet festival to underprivileged people nationwide.

The event, co-organised by Nhan Dan (People) Newspaper and some other agencies and sectors, was attended by National Assembly Vice Chairman Uong Chu Luu; members of the Part Central Committee: Thuan Huu, Editor-in-chief of Nhan Dan Newspaper, Deputy Head of PCC Commission for Communication and Education, and Chairman of the Vietnam Journalists’ Association; Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Tran Hong Ha, and President of the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour Nguyen Dinh Khang.

During the programme, the organising board presented 90 scholarships worth VND5 million each to outstanding students, as well as Tet gifts to those who were less fortunate in poorer households, and families of policy beneficiaries across the country.

Twelve social houses worth VND100 million each were handed over to residents in flood-hit areas on the occasion.

The event also featured songs and dances related to spring, the land and people performed by popular Vietnamese singers and artists.

Addressing the event, Nhan Dan Newspaper's Deputy Editor-in-Chief Dinh Nhu Hoan expressed his pleasure that, under the care of the Party and State, charity and humanitarian activities have notably received a lot of enthusiastic participation from ministries, sectors, organisations and individuals at both home and abroad, contributing to strengthening the solidarity in the whole of society.
