Hanoi (VNA) - The Vietnam Youth Federation (VYF) Central Committee said on January 19 that it will present Tet gifts and tickets to more than 1,600 disadvantaged and migrant female workers, helping them return home for the traditional Tet holiday (Lunar New Year).

As many as 450 tickets will be given to female labourers working at industrial parks and export processing zones in Hanoi, 360 tickets to those in Hung Yen, 405 tickets to workers in Ho Chi Minh City, and 405 others to women in Binh Duong province.

VYF chapters in localities will deliver gifts and tickets to the needy, and volunteers will be arranged at 11 pick-up locations to provide guidance for the workers.

According to the organising board, the move aims to reduce the economic burden on young employees, helping them reunite with their families during the upcoming Tet holiday.

It is a practical activity in response to the Winter Volunteer 2015 and Spring Volunteer 2016 programmes.-VNA
