Agent Orange/dioxin children in the central city of Da Nang were entertained with a performance by renowned Czech magician and illusionist Michal Sindelar and Vietnamese artists on May 5.

The performance, and other charitable activities, will benefit the children in their integration into the community, said President of the municipal Association for Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin Nguyen Thi Hien.

Da Nang is now home to more than 5,000 AO victims, of whom 150 children victims are being cared for at support centres.

Between March and April, over 200 orphans and children with disabilities in Hanoi were taught with life skills such as how to communicate with each other and how to stay away from incidents and injuries when playing.

Under the support of the Johnson&Johnson Asia Pacific Foundation, the disadvantaged children also learnt traffic regulations and road signs.

Meanwhile, 12,000 children in the southern provinces of Dong Thap and Tien Giang have been provided with skills to survive natural disasters.

Launched since February 2013, the effort is part of a 197,000 USD project funded by the Prudence Foundation under the Prudential Corporation, with the assistance from Save the Children.

The project has also equipped the children with life jackets, waterproof bags and lifebuoys.-VNA
