NDO – On January 20, Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung visited and presented gifts to poor households, policy beneficiaries, needy workers, and children at the SOS Children’s Village in Viet Tri City, Phu Tho Province, ahead of the Lunar New Year (Tet).

The Deputy PM and representatives from the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee, the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour and provincial leaders handed 100 gifts to policy beneficiaries and another 100 to disadvantaged workers.

Speaking at the event, Deputy PM Dung appreciated the achievements Phu Tho has obtained in the most recent tenure, urging the province to pay greater attention to bettering its investment environment, improving people’s lives, developing new-style rural areas, and accelerating industrialisation and modernisation associated with urbanisation.

Given the complicated developments of COVID-19, Phu Tho needs to focus on preventing and combating the pandemic, expanding care for disadvantaged subjects across the province, and ensuring a happy and warm Tet for local people, especially national contributors, war invalids, fallen soldiers’ families, workers and needy households, he said.

Visiting the SOS Children’s Village Viet Tri, Deputy PM Dung encouraged the village to continue promoting its traditions, while mobilising and effectively utilising resources and assistance from individuals and organisations to take care of and educate disadvantaged children.

On the same day, Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh paid a pre-Tet visit to Bach Mai Hospital in Hanoi, during which she presented 100 gifts to cancer patients being treated at the hospital.

She wished the staff of the hospital and patients a warm and peaceful Tet festival and a happy and lucky new year, while encouraging cancer patients to maintain their confidence and optimism, with a view to soon recovering and reuniting with their families.
