HCM CITY  (VNS)— The Taiwan External Trade Development Council (Taitra) on Wednesday awarded three outstanding projects in the second phase of its charity campaign called "Taiwan Excellence Cares".

With the goal of supporting disadvantaged children, the three winners were chosen from a total of 20 projects, which had been selected online among many others by more than 400,000 people in the first phase of the campaign.

The participants in the campaign have implemented their projects and plans using Taiwanese-made cameras, tablets and computers to teach disadvantaged children in Ha Noi's SOS Children's Village and HCM City's Mai Tam Charity House how to make paper products.

The award for each winner will be US$2,000 and a trip to Taiwan in October. Winners will also receive funds to expand and implement their projects in Viet Nam. They are financially supported by nearly 30 Taiwanese brandnames. . — VNS
