HCM CITY (VNS) — More than 100 artworks painted by students were sold to raise money for children with cancer at the Saigon Pearl Residential Complex in HCM City's Binh Thanh District over the weekend.

The students, aged seven to 15, used a variety of materials including pencils, oil and watercolour to paint landscapes and daily activities.

The young artists are from Australia, France, Malaysia, Chinese Taipei and Viet Nam, according to Schoolmistress Tran Lien, one of the organisers of the exhibition.

Fifty per cent of the proceeds from the sale of the paintings will be used to help disadvantaged children diagnosed with cancer, as part of the "Thuy's Dream" programme launched by Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper. — VNS
