QUẢNG NINH Chairwoman of the National Assembly Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân yesterday visited northern Quảng Ninh province’s mountainous commune of Đồng Sơn where over 98 per cent of the local population are Dao ethnic minority people.
The top legislator presented a school-name board to the local primary and secondary school.
The school was built at a cost of VNĐ8.3 billion (US$356,900), donated by NA Chairwoman Ngân through the auction of a football and jersey with the autographs of all members of Việt Nam’s U23 team, the runners-up of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U23 Championship last year.
Scholarships were presented to 50 local students in difficult circumstances.
Nguyễn Văn Đọc, Secretary of the provincial Party Committee, granted uniforms to students and teachers of Đồng Sơn Primary and Secondary School.
NA Chairwoman Ngân and her entourage also visited and presented relief aid to social policy beneficiaries, poor and near poor households in Đồng Sơn.
The “Stand Tall Vietnam” Milk Fund and Vietnam Diary Products JSC (Vinamilk) presented 17,330 glasses of milk worth about VNĐ500 million to nearly 800 students in mountainous localities in Quảng Ninh. — VNS
