The 9th “One Heart, One World” artistic show will be broadcast live on VTV2 on Apr. 14 to call on the community to pay more care to disadvantaged people and orphaned children.

Speaking at a press briefing in Hanoi on Apr. 5, Nguyen Dinh Lieu, President of the Association in Support of Vietnamese Handicapped and Orphans said that many popular artists will join children from Ba Dinh district of Hanoi in the performance.

He added that the programme’s organising board has so far collected nearly 13 billion VND (600,000 million USD) from local and foreign individuals and organsiations to help people with disabilities and orphans with hope of helping them overcome difficulties.

In 2011, the programme raised over 10 billion VND and spent the amount buying gifts and paying for medical treatment for disabled people and orphans in 38 communes nationwide.

Over the past years, the association organised many activities to help people with disabilities and orphans integrate into the local community and improve their lives.-VNA
