VTV.vn - Continuing the journey of sharing with disadvantaged residents throughout the country to welcome the upcoming Lunar New Year (Tet), Nhan Dan representatives in Can Tho and donors presented Tet gifts to disadvantaged families in Lam Hai commune, Nam Can district, the southernmost province of Ca Mau, on January 31.

Nguyen Viet Bac, Chairman of Lam Hai commune People's Committee, expressed his sincere thanks to Nhan Dan Newspaper and donors, with hopes that they will continue to accompany and share difficulties with disadvantaged people in Ca Mau, including Lam Hai commune, joining hands with local authorities to take better care of social security.

Previously, the representative of the Standing Agency of Nhan Dan Newspaper in Can Tho and donors gave 20 Tet gifts to poor households in hamlet 4, Dam Doi town, Dam Doi district of Ca Mau. All the gifts were mobilised from Saigon 268 Development Trading JSC.

The same day, Politburo member and Secretary of Hanoi municipal Party Committee, Hoang Trung Hai, visited officials and soldiers of the Traffic Police Department under the Hanoi Police to express Tet wishes to them.

Praising the efforts and sacrifices by the Hanoi police in ensuring political security, social order and safety, Hai suggested the department focus on ensuring smooth and safe traffic before, during and after Tet, while strengthening measures to build traffic conscious culture.

In recent days, the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee organised missions to visit and give Tet gifts to poor households and policy beneficiaries across the nation. The delegation visited Trang commune in Dak Doa district of Gia Lai province, giving 50 gifts to local poor households (each worth VND1 million in cash and necessities). On this occasion, the VFF handed over VND300 million from the "For the Poor" Fund to support Gia Lai to buy warm clothes for children in extremely difficult circumstances in communes in the province. The mission also visited and gave Tet gifts to poor households and policy families in Quang Binh province.

On Thursday, 700 patients being treated at Hanoi’s Tan Trieu K Hospital boarded free bus trips to return home to celebrate Tet. This year, the free bus trip programme was divided into two phases, with the first trip held on January and the last on January 31.
