HCM CITY — The 24th Mùa hè xanh (Green Summer) Volunteer Campaign kicked off in HCM City yesterday attracting over 60,000 youngsters.
The campaign will be held until August 13 in 24 districts of HCM City and some provinces in the Central Highlands, southeastern and southwestern regions, Thổ Chu Island in southern Kiên Giang Province, as well as neighbouring Laos.
This year’s campaign focuses on building civilised lifestyle in urban areas and new-style rural areas, protecting the environment and responding to climate change.
Volunteers will also participate in other activities, such as supporting children and setting up teams to tackle local socio-economic issues.
The month-long campaign is expected to build 50 civilised alleys and five clean and safe apartment areas, repair at least 50 charity houses and upgrade 40 kilometres of rural road and five kilometres of urban road.
Additionally, about 10 rural cement bridges and seven canals are planned for upgrades, as is the construction of six water filtering works. — VNS
