Da Nang (VNA) – A street art programme entitled “Brighten up your life” was inaugurated in Hoa Cuong Nam ward in Hai Chau district, the central city of Da Nang, on August 31.

The programme was carried out by Hoan My Da Nang Hospital, the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union’s chapter in Hoa Cuong Nam ward, and the Da Nang University of Architecture.

Seven painters along with youths, and local people turned the moss-covered walls of houses on Ho Nguyen Trung road into 30 colourful murals.

The pictures depict the beauty of the fishing community, wildlife, local children, and the natural landscape. The images aim to raise public awareness of environmental and marine life protection. Walls of local schools were also repainted as part of the programme.

Besides, the programme presented scholarships and free movie screenings to local students, as well as hygiene and first aid training courses for them.

Director of the Hoan My Da Nang Hospital Pham Nguyen Cam Thach said over the years, the hospital has worked to organise free health screenings and cardiovascular surgeries for children in disadvantaged and remote mountainous localities nationwide, as well as present scholarships to children of soldiers in Truong Sa archipelago. –VNA
