DIEN BIEN (VNS) — About 5,000 underprivileged children in the northern mountainous Dien Bien Province today received woollen jackets, hats and scarves on the occasion of the upcoming Christmas and New Year holidays.

The gifts, worth US$20,000, have been donated by World Vision and the Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Group (MSIG) for children in the 5-13 age group, who come from poor families in Muong Cha District.

MSIG, in co-operation with World Vision, has provided blankets, scarves, hats and gloves, worth US$100,000, to underprivileged children in the province since 2010.

Ever since it started its development programme in Muong Cha in 2007, more than 10,000 poor households have benefited from World Vision's activities, such as in education, health, child protection and capacity-building.

Besides Muong Cha, World Vision is implementing two other programmes in Tua Chua and Tuan Giao Districts in Dien Bien Province. — VNS
