HCM CITY (VNS) — A Toy Library, packed full of colourful wooden toys that teach children about color and spatial perception, opened recently at Tam Binh Children Welfare and Protection Centre in HCM City's Thu Duc District.

The toys also help children with fine motor coordination and language, according to the Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO), an international NGO.

Sponsored by HSBC Viet Nam, the Toy Library is part of the centre's programme, the Comprehensive Care for Orphan, Children and Adolescents with Disability and Special Needs.

It is based on a model developed in the US during the Great Depression and in Scandinavia in the 1960s for children with special needs. — VNS
