HA NOI — President Truong Tan Sang has asked all agencies to join hands in activities to encourage children in difficult circumstances to overcome their problems and support them in their studies.
Speaking at a meeting with 50 disavantaged children from across the country in Ha Noi yesterday, Sang said that help from organisations and individuals was important for the children's efforts in study and life.
He expressed his wish for the Presidential Palace to continue to host and praise children who have demonstrated extraordinary efforts in overcoming difficulties every year on Children's Day, June 1.
The 50 children, who despite living in difficult conditions have all excelled in their studies, have gathered in the capital for the fifth such meeting held by the Viet Nam Children Sponsorship Fund and the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs. — VNS
