NGHỆ AN — A line-up of voluntary activities, including the Green Summer and the Red Flamboyant campaigns, are included in the 2016 Summer Youth Volunteer Campaign launched in the central province of Nghệ An yesterday.

Themed “Youth join hands in building new-style rural areas and civilised urban areas”, the campaign will focus on voluntary activities for 111 disadvantaged communes, 431 border communes, Mekong Delta provinces hit by saltwater intrusion, drought-stricken localities in the south central and Central Highland regions, and outpost islands.

Along with developing infrastructure in those localities, the campaign will also provide free medical checkups for 400,000 local people and will present health insurance cards to 50,000 residents in poverty-stricken and border communes.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, Võ Văn Thưởng, Head of the Party Central Committee’s Information and Education Commission, said the campaign must be organised across the nation in diversified forms to attract youth participation.

Youth unions at all levels need to work with international volunteer organisations to improve the voluntary activities offered.— VNS
