QUẢNG NAM — President Trần Đại Quang reaffirmed the duty to care for contributors to the national revolution at his visit to a nursing home in the central province of Quảng Nam on the occasion of the 41st anniversary of National Reunification Day today.
Founded in 1976, the provincial centre is now nursing 35 Vietnamese heroic mothers, war invalids and those who have rendered services to the nation. It also provides services for nearly 4,000 revolutionary contributors in Quảng Trị and 500 others from central and Central Highlands provinces every year.
It has recently undergone upgrades at a cost of nearly VNĐ28 billion (US$1.26 million).
During the visit, the leader reiterated that the Party and State always kept in mind the contributors’ participation in and sacrifices to the struggle for national liberation and independence.
He was delighted that these heroic mothers and revolutionary contributors have been well cared for by the centre’s staff and Quảng Nam province in particular.
Greater endeavours should be made in the caring of revolutionary contributors, he said.
The same day, Quang paid homage to late President Hồ Chí Minh and martyrs at the Nước Oa national historical and cultural relic site in Bắc Trà My district, and visited the commemorative house of the late acting President Huỳnh Thúc Kháng.
The Nước Oa historical and cultural relic site once served as a revolutionary base of the High Command of Military Zone V during the America War.
From 1972-1973, the base was chosen as the venue of many important meetings and training courses for leaders and officials of regional provinces following the signing of the Paris Agreement, where they discussed how to lead people nationwide in the struggle for liberation of the South and national reunification.
The site won the national historical-cultural status in August 1992. — VNS
