THUA THIEN – HUE — Twenty two soldiers stationed in central Thua Thien – Hue Province went to Laos for two days to provide food, health checks, and medicines to residents of a poor village there and help them repair their houses.
The soldiers, who are from the A Dot Border Gate, walked 10 kilometres over mountainous and muddy roads to reach Kalo village.
Nguyen Van Trung, the border post's Ho Chi Minh Youth Union Secretary, said this task was done every month, with Dr Tran Viet Anh, head of the post medical station visiting the village most often.
Kalo Village in Sekong Province has 316 people, all living a nomadic life. .— VNS
