Dak Lak (VNA) – The summer youth volunteer campaign 2017 was launched in the Central Highland province of Dak Lak on May 28 with a view to encouraging youngsters to build new-style rural and civilised urban areas.

Head of the Party Central Committee's Commission for Mass Mobilisation Truong Thi Mai asked the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee to promote the pioneering role of youths in remote, border and island areas.

The campaign will be carried out in 64 poor districts, coastal and island regions across the nation for three months. 

Young people will help build 300 charity houses, build and upgrade roads, as well as provide health check-ups and medicines for over 500,000 residents in disadvantaged areas and grant 70 saving books to ex-youth volunteers.

At the launching ceremony, young volunteers went to ethnic people in Cu M’gar, Krong Buk, Buon Don districts, Buon Ho town, and Buon Ma Thuot city to build infrastructure and present gifts to poor children in far-flung areas in Dak Lak.-VNA
