THAI BINH (VNS) — Dozens of wheelchairs, donated by the Japanese Volunteers Group, were handed to disabled people in northern Thai Binh province this morning.

The envoy of the Japanese embassy in Viet Nam said he highly appreciated the activities of the group in the past, and hoped that difficulties in the life of the disabled people in Viet Nam would be improved, thanks to the help from the group.

The group has granted more than 600 wheelchairs to the handicapped in a few provinces across the country.
