Ho Chi Minh City (VNA) – The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee said that it would organise numerous summer activities for children, with special attention paid to disadvantaged children, suburban children and children in new-style rural communes.

Summer activities will be organised from May 28 to August 10 with four major events “For lovely children”, “Join hands to build a civilised, clean and safe city”, “Repay revolutionary heroes” and “For suburban friends.”

An “Attaching dreams with wings” camp will be organised for children in special circumstances as well as a camp for Vietnam-Laos-Cambodia children.

Summer trips to the families of war veterans, martyrs and heroic mothers will also be held to educate children on the historic tradition of Vietnam.

A “The city’s children follow Uncle Ho’s five teachings” campaign will also be launched to educate children on manners, culture and family tradition.

In order to encourage reading, a mobile book truck will bring books to children in remote areas.

Departments and localities are encouraged to organise activities for children as well as to encourage children to improve the environment and landscape surrounding them.-VNA
