HCM CITY (VNS)  — More than 500 universities students in HCM City have joined a charity campaign called "Nha sach don Tet" (Cleaning house to welcome Tet) by the South African honorary consulate to give gifts to poor people for Tet (the Lunar New Year).

The volunteers will clean the houses of people registering for the service, and use the money they earn (VND55,000 per hour) to make banh chung (square glutinous rice cake) and buy clothes and other items to donate to poor people, enabling them to celebrate Tet with a bit more gaiety than normal.

It will be for the second year that the charity programme will be carried. It is part of a larger community-based programme for Tet organised by the consulate with several sponsors pitching in. — VNS
