Former diplomat gets certificate of merit
DA NANG (VNS)— This central city's People's Committee presented a former US ambassador to Viet Nam, Pete Peterson, president of the Alliance for Safe Children, a Certificate of Merit for contributions to SwimSafe.
Da Nang's programme has helped 22,000 children to swim over the past few years.
Portable swimming pools have been set up throughout the city, which create an opportunity to learn swimming during summer.
