SON LA (VNS) — Viet Nam Trade Union's fund for supporting children and VietinBank (Viet Nam joint stock commercial bank for industry and trade) have donated 1,000 lifebuoys in Son La Province.

The lifebuoys were given to students of the three mountainous districts of Mai Son, Muong La and Quynh Nhai. The gifts will help minimise deaths due to drowning in the coming flood season.

People generally travel by boat and ferry in the northern mountainous Son La Province, which has several rivers, lakes and ponds.

However, they lack life-saving equipment, especially children travelling to school on small boats without lifebuoys. — VNS
