QUANG TRI (VNS) — About 30 volunteers from the Republic of Korea and Da Nang College of Foreign Languages students participated in a charity programme in Quang Tri Province from August 14 to 18.
The volunteers trained parents of disabled children in preventing ulcers and improving dental care, while repainting walls and repairing equipment at a rehabilitation centre for the disabled in Gio Linh District.
They also organised exchange activities for children with disabilities and their parents in Cua Viet Beach, and gave them essential commodities such as detergents, soaps, shampoos and cooking utensils.
Manager of the rehab centre Ta Thi Tri hailed the programme as a move to bring happiness and hope to the children.
Quang Tri was one of the localities that were worst affected by the war. The province is home to more than 37,000 disabled people, accounting for 6.2 per cent of its population. Most of the families with disabled members live in difficult conditions. — VNS
