TIEN GIANG  (VNS) — An Australian volunteer group, AWSOM, helped teach about 350 children and elderly people in the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang to swim.

This is the fourth year members of AWSOM have held these classes in the province, with the help of the local Union of Friendship Organisation and relevant agencies.

The six-day classes, which ended yesterday, are also part of a programme aiming to reduce instances of drowning in the Mekong River.

The volunteers also held workshops on why it is necessary to be able to swim and have water-rescue skills. — VNS
