Nghe An (VNA) – A number of volunteering activities have been held by 34 students of Youngsan University, the Republic of Korea (RoK), in the central province of Nghe An, the hometown of late President Ho Chi Minh.

It is part of the volunteering programme co-organised by the Youth’s Union of the Vietnam-Korea Industrial Technical Vocational College and Youngsan University’s volunteer team from July 3-14.

Various cultural exchange events, clean-up campaigns, wall paintings, water pipe repair and free haircut took place at Lang Sen primary school during the event.

The school also received computers and water filters from the RoK group.

The volunteering activities offered RoK students exciting experiences and interaction opportunities to gain better understanding about Vietnamese people and country, said Sangkeun Jeong, supervisor of the RoK team.

He also hoped the event will contribute to enhancing solidarity and friendship between Vietnam and the RoK.
