HCM CITY— The HCM City People’s Committee spent VNĐ52.5 billion (US$2.34 million) on activities for children and teenagers over two months this summer.
A programme titled “Proud of children in HCM City” that ended last week featured a wide range of entertainment, sports, arts, music, health care and communications for children and teenagers from across the city.
Teenagers and children who are respectively members of the Hồ Chí Minh Communist Youth Union and Union of Vietnamese Children were sent to camps in Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta provinces of Long An, Bến Tre, Trà Vinh, and Vĩnh Long, the northern provinces of Tuyên Quang and Cao Bằng and Hà Nội.
Many activities were held to improve their awareness of environmental protection, including tree planting at schools, parks and historical relics as well as forest camps.
Museums in the city, including Hồ Chí Minh Museum, Việt Nam History Museum, War Remnants Museum and Southern Việt Nam Women Museum, allowed them free entry tickets.
District-level children’s houses also organised various music and art performances, traditional games and contests for them. — VNS
