HOI AN (VNS) — The Hoi An Book Club has donated 500 books to children living on Cu Lao Cham Island, 18km off the coast of the ancient city.
These books, which were collected from families in Ha Noi, HCM City, Da Nang and Thai Binh, will help promote reading among local children.
Cham Island was recognised as a world biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 2009, and it welcomes around 100,000 tourists annually, 10 per cent of whom are foreigners.
The Hoi An-based club holds free reading groups for around 100 children on Sundays. — VNS
